Mr Mac Byron Bay

... a legend in his own lunchtime

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.

iPhone 4 Released At Last

Here we go: the iPhone 4 is released this week in Australia although I will have to wait longer if I want a white one, which I do. Despite the media furore over the antennae 'problem' it is selling and selling. And selling, 3 million in 22 days. It looks like a…

Living with the iPad

Having lived with an iPad had now for two weeks I have to say that I'm very happy with it. Although it's not an essential purchase it is certainly very nice to have around. The main use I find is sitting on the lounge surfing the web and doing e-mails.…
