HDD vs SSDIf you’re shopping for a computer (be sure to follow our computer shopping tips), you may have seen the term “Solid-State-Drive” or “SSD” on the computer’s specification sheet. What is a SSD and why should you get one in your computer instead of a hard-disk-drive (HDD) for your data storage needs?

Urban ArmorNeed a durable case and screen protector for your tablet or smartphone? We can probably help you with that. We recently setup a pile of Windows tablets for a client that needed durable cases (as they’d be used in an environment where things are likely to get beaten up). We installed Urban Armor Gear cases on all the tablets. We were impressed with the build quality and the protection the case offered in the slim form factor, so we decided to become an authorized reseller of the product.

So if you need a durable case or glass screen protector for your iPhone, iPad, Android Smartphone or tablet, Surface Pro or even your MacBook, and Urban Armor makes it, let us know and we can get you a quote.

We’ve featured some Windows 10 headlines in our newsletter recently. From all indications, it looks like it might be a good operating system, and even a free upgrade for many folks. But that doesn’t mean you should jump into it right off-the-bat, despite what the marketing and the little pop-up on your computer might be telling you. Read on for our thoughts on the new OS that is due to be released this month and why you may want to hold off on the upgrade.

Bend Area Habitat for HumanityAs we mentioned earlier this year, it's our 20th Anniversary this year. We also mentioned that we had a goal this year of raising at least $20,000 for local charities. And now we want to move forward to see how much of that we can raise before the end of the year for Bend Area Habitat for Humanity. Read on to learn more about their upcoming campaign and why we are supporting Habitat for Humanity.

Come Celebrate 20 Years With Us!

Posted by on in Technology

As we talked about when we brought our newsletter and blog back from the dead, Weston Technology Solutions is 20 Years Old this year. This month, we celebrate our 20th Anniversary, and we're inviting you, our valued clients, to celebrate (and learn something along the way).

Since the company started in Anchorage (and we still have clients from those early days), our first anniversary event will be in Anchorage. Clear your calendar for the afternoon of July 15, where founder and CEO Brock McFarlane a session on Office 365 with training, demos, and more. RSVP for that event here.

Presentation starts at 3PM at the Millennium Alaskan Hotel at 4800 Spenard Rd. Afterwards and into the evening, we'll be serving hors d'oeuvres, giving a brief history of Weston, and giving a hearty "Thank You" to all the folks in Anchorage who have been with us all these years. RSVP for reception here.

Come to one, or come to both, we just want to see you there!

RSVP by e-mailing  or signing up here so we can let the hotel know how many folks are going be there. We look forward to seeing you!
