Mr Mac has been supporting Apple Macintosh clients in the Byron Shire for the last 18 years, serving a loyal clientele who appreciate personal service and quick solutions to the common situations that arise in the day to day life of the Mac computer, iPhone and iPad user.
There has been a change of the guard as Tommi has said goodbye and headed to the UK. We wish him happy travels and thank him for all his great Mac work over the last 18 years.
I’m Dave Carnovale, aka the ‘New’ Mr Mac and have previously been known as ‘Tech Rescue’. The Mr Mac business will continue as usual with all the same contact details, rates and commitment to quality service. I have been working across a wide range of IT for over 25 years and have had a love of Mac products since the late 80’s when I purchased my first Apple product: the iconic Apple ll desktop.
The Mr Mac business is based on visits to the home or businesses that need assistance: apart from physical hardware problems most issues can be sorted out on the computer in situ, saving valuable down time.
Email support is free for our clients, as is free advice on purchasing a Mac, either new or second hand.
Myself and Ms Mac (Lisa) look forward to helping you with all your Apple related issues.

7.1.1 is now available which apparently fixes a few glitches. It is generally a good idea to run with the updates... Very occasionally there will be a problem but usually they work well.
And this article reckons it improves battery lifetoo:
With the Hearbleed Bug giving us all a timely reminder about the need to have secure passwords I think this article will help.
It examines six different password managers and recommends which you could use.
Password Managers basically store all your passwords in an encrypted state so no one can hack…
