Message from Scott

As we continue to move through the COVID-19 crisis, I hope everyone is healthy and well. Hopefully our lives will start to return to a new normal in the near future. In the meantime, while we are all at home please reach out to me if we can help in any way with regard to your home technology. We are here to support you in any way that we can.

Best of health,

No Camp? No Problem!
With summer camp likely off the table this summer, we know you're looking to upgrade your outdoor space. Outdoor TV, music and lighting are just some of the ways to enhance your summer at home. It's easy to get the process started. We can provide video estimates via FaceTime or other video chat services. Show us your space and share your ideas! If you prefer, we can come in person and give outdoor estimates; we'll maintain social distancing while abiding by all CDC regulations. Call us today at 516-625-6060 or reach us by email to get your home vacation space all set!
Facebook and Google are Going After Zoom
If you're like many people, you've been using Zoom to have virtual family and friend 'visits' as well as business meetings. Now, Facebook and Google want a bigger piece of that pie and are hoping that Messenger Rooms and Google Meet, respectively, will help them out. Messenger Rooms doesn't require a Facebook account and allows 50 people to meet. Google Meet is now free to anyone with an email address, and allows up to 100 people to meet. If you're up for exploring these options, read more here.
How the Oscars are Changing
For this year only, movies that debuted on a streaming service without a theatrical run will be eligible for the Oscars. This speaks to how much the film industry has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. With no official host, and movies that never hit the theater, the next Oscars should be very interesting indeed.
Don't Forget! We've Got Video Tech Support
IDS has Video Chat Tech Support available. If you've got an issue, we can help virtually! With FaceTime, Skype, Zoom or other services, we can fix many issues that could impact your services at home. Call 516-625-6060 or contact us by email. We'll do our best to get you back online!
