Macjunky is the place to go to with your Mac problems. Kia really takes his time to help you personally. He is very passionate about his work and clearly an expert on the topic. I came to him with my MacBook Pro that had just died because of a videocard problem. Lucky for me he was able to tell me about a recall program Apple started to fix this issue. He even wrote an article about it! Great advice! Great guy! Just go there and get your problem fixed!

Your #Apple #MacBook battery should NOT look like this!!

Please be careful, if your MacBook is getting too hot or your #Trackpad isn't working well then this might be the cause.

If the battery gets to this stage then it could very well #explode!!

Someone had to say it:

“Apple users need a lot less help than PC users…”

WOW! I'm humbled to get such a fantastic review!

Thanks so much Vincent! I'm glad I could help you remotely too.

MacJunky, Kia, heeft een zeer adequate analyse gemaakt van de storing op mijn MacBook pro. Hij is is snel en hulpvaardig, ik kan bij hem terecht voor mijn vragen en voor een snelle oplossing van mijn Mac-probleem (in dit geval bleek het een probleem met het moederbord te zijn). Ik kon er op wachten terwijl hij mijn Mac analyseerde: harddrive/ software aansturing van de Mac/ moederbord.

MacJunkie is makkelijk te bereiken, parkeren vlak voor zijn bedrijf geen probleem (handig als je met Mac's moet slepen) en ook nog hulp achteraf als jouw (in dit geval mijn) Mac de werkplaats van Kia weer verlaten heeft en eenmaal thuis toch nog wat instellingen gecheckt moeten worden: via Teamviewer kijkt en handelt Kia op afstand en helpt door mijn cursor op afstand over te nemen om de instellingen te perfectioneren.

Voor ieder die niet elke keer de tocht naar een Apple store wil maken is MacJunkie een professionele troubleshooter!!

Another great review!
 
Thanks +Aik Deveneijns for you great review!
Kia was available quickly, cleaned out the dust macbook pro retina while giving some advice regarding clean installs and beta software. He basically stopped me from buying a new macbook (twice), saved me a lot of money!

My iPhone is running much better on 9.1
 
iOS 9.1 is an essential update for those who are already on iOS 9. If you still haven't upgraded to iOS 9, find out why you may want to wait.
page 1 of 4 Apple’s newest iOS release still leaves a few rough edges. This article examines whether it’s worth upgrading to iOS 9.1. It’s been a rough past year for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users. iOS 8 … Continue reading →

New blog post about video card issues on [some] MacBook Pro models.

https://macjunky.nl/do-you-have-an-apple-macbook-pro-2011-15-with-video-issues

‪#‎Apple‬ ‪#‎MacBook‬ ‪#‎Video‬ ‪#‎Issues‬
The past few weeks I have had many clients come to me with their MacBook Pro 15' machine with the dreaded video card issue. Many have been told by other service providers to replace the motherboard, this is a very costly repair! But what they are not being told that they can go to Apple direct and get their MacBooks repaired for free under their recall program! So if you have a 2011 MacBook Pro with video card issues, then it's best that you cont...

Excellent tip Kia. I have an earlier 17" MacBook Pro that sporadically has identical problems. Not even going to try contacting Apple, it has been a good machine but it's time to put him to sleep.

#Apple #Mac #Backup #Solutions @Backblaze
Waking up to doom and gloom on a Monday isn't my idea of fun, and to make things worse it is kinda my work as I have to deal with it all the time, but I try to always see the positive in the doom. This morning I woke up with to a horrific story in my Twitter feed one that resonated with me (well not me personally but a few of my clients came to mind right away!) Please, have offsite backups. If not @Backblaze, someone else, but it’s important. An...

Good thing to read...
 
Today I got an iMessage from a new client that wanted a new hard drive installed in his MacBook Pro. I was asked about my service and how much I would charge for the project. Well my reply was to the point: 'My prices may be a little higher than usual, but my service is the best around.' I never hide the fact that I may be a little more expensive that my competitors, but I think good service, and excellent knowledge is what we all strive for. Thi...

Freelance IT System Administrator & Apple Consultant. Founder of @MacJunky
Introduction

I have been an Apple Technical Support IT Consultant for over 25 years and in 2007 I started MacJunky (Google+ Page) which now has over 6000 clients.

I'm a Media Consultant with a passion for gadgets. If there is one rule I abide by, it will be… 'Less is more' and this convey's it's self to my personal being and throughout my working practices.

Not only do I support, repair and consult on Apple products but I have a passion for music production, and my expertise extends well beyond the normal 'IT Consultant' roll.

I have helped thousands of private and business clients get the most out of their Apple products. If you’re looking for someone that can help in simple terms, effectively, with no fuss then get in touch.

History

In the late 80's I started to enjoy and learn what I now call work, it's not 'work' if you love what you do, right?  In the early 90's I released a multitude of records (yes vinyl!) with varying success.

Future

I've done various online, and offline projects that I am very proud of and hope to find more projects that can further my expertise and fulfil my love for technology and gadgets.

Personal

I have 2 children, illi ('05) & Bam ('06), whom I love dearly, not forgetting my dog Woof! I live on an island in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and have been here since 2006.

Laughter & sarcasm are my first priorities. Yes, I can be sarcastic, but never rude. There is a difference.

Relaxation

Going to the gym, cycling, driving my monster car, walking my dog Woof! and making music.

Hobbies

After a very long sabbatical from the music scene, I've managed to find time in my busy schedule to get back into production. My studio is very modest but it's not the tools you use, it's the final outcome that matters.
