eLinkMe: Talk Support At The Touch Of A Button

As someone who relies on my laptop for my living, the thought of anything going wrong with it is terrifying. It’s happened a few times over the years, and every time, my panic and stress levels shot through the roof. Without my computer, I can’t do my work – and if I don’t do my work, I don’t get paid. And you know what happens if I don’t get paid? I don’t eat.

 

So yeah, functioning technology is pretty important to me. However, I’m not always in a place where I can easily access a computer repair technician, because my boyfriend and I move to a new country every three to nine months. That means that when something happens with my computer, I not only have to track down where the repair shop is but I also have to make sure the technicians speak English, figure out how I’m going to get there, and negotiate with someone who usually has a very different idea about customer service and pricing than I’m used to. All in all, it’s a pretty terrible experience.

 

All of that hassle is why I was super excited to find about about eLinkMe, which connects users with IT support quickly, safely, and from the comfort of their own home. No searching for shops, no negotiating, no stranger in your home — just solid, immediate tech support.

Sound too good to be true? It’s not. eLinkMe customers receive a plug-in device that works with the USB port on their computer. If something comes up with their computer — whether it’s a system crash or a virus or any kind of IT issue — all they have to do is plug it in, press a button, and they’re connected with an IT professional. It even works if the computer is completely missing an operating system, because eLinkMe can connect at the BIOS level.

 

And while you might stress about someone in tech support copying your information (we’ve all heard those horror stories), eLinkMe protects users against the threat of remote IT workers copying anything from their computer. It’s a safe alternative to traditional tech support all around.

 

The eLinkMe device isn’t just an awesome way to call tech support, though — it’s a multi-functional device that can be used as a password manager and a USB storage stick. Users who choose to get the dock can even use it as an mp3 player. It’s basically the coolest USB you’ve ever owned, guaranteed.

 

However, I have to say that their patented tech support system is the biggest draw of the eLinkMe. The idea of being able to access expert advice at the click of a button is so, so ace. If you agree, head over to the eLinkMe site and see about getting your hands on one.
