In the 16 years Care Free Computing has been
servicing clients in Christchurch, the change in
technology has been incredible, says Care Free
Computing owner Brendan Richardson.
"In 1997, the Internet was still relatively new,
and computers were still a luxury, with the
focus on education and entertainment for our
children," he says.
"Today, everyone is connected to the internet,
often with multiple devices. Email is a primary
form of communication, and most families
have two or three computers, smart phones or
"And, in the business world, we are more
reliant on this technology than ever before.
Purchasing technology is easy, every big
retailer is selling technology, alongside TV's,
fridges, and furniture. Specialist computer
stores are few and far between as PC's
become a basic commodity."
Yet the same problems remain as they did in
1997 -- when things go wrong, what then?
"Maybe you can call an 0800 number, if you
have the patience, a very good understanding
of heavily accented 'English', and don't care
about the data you haven't backed up. You
could try to go back to the retailer, but you will
often find you know more about the issue than
they do," he says.
The other alternative makes your life easier -

manager to pay the bill.

A PLASMA TV MIGHT BE
FOR YOU IF:
• You want really rich, warm colours and
• You like to watch sports and other fast-
action TV. Plasmas handle fast-moving
images exceptionally well.
• You'll be sitting off-axis when you
watch TV or movies
• Your viewing room doesn't have a lot of
ambient light. Plasmas achieve their
best brightness under normal or low
A FLAT-PANEL LCD TV
MIGHT BE FOR YOU IF:
• You watch a lot of TV shows or play lots
of video games with static images on
the screen for extended periods of
time, several days a week
• Your TV room is relatively bright, or you
do a lot of daytime viewing. As ambient
light becomes stronger, so LCDs look
• If you are after a screen smaller than
106cm. Plasmas don't come in sizes
smaller than this.
• LCD panels are thin and lightweight ---
this is the most energy-efficient display
