Usually when people buy a smart watch, it is assumed the buyer is buying one because they have money to burn. But sales figures prove otherwise. Out of all the Apple Watches, if users do buy a non-cellular model, it’s the series one models. Most likely because apple users already spent at least $800 on a flagship phone, so they don’t have much left over for a device that honestly has little practical use.
This proves that despite a strong economy, consumers are not as spendthrift as before 2001. People have put their phones on installment, break them, and then rollover the balances, creating a massive unsecured personal debt with their phone carrier, all just to keep up with the Jones’s.
All of this is bad news for laptop and especially desktop makers. Due to thin budgets, only businesses or power users buy desktops, and most choose large firms. This is exactly why we decided to diversify into support, software, and video production. Major repair shops charge far more for far less in workmanship, education, and experience. We owe it to the public to keep ourselves solvent and adapt to market changes.
We’ll have a wait list for service again, and older clients or ones who are willing to pay more obviously will be prioritized.
I used to have to turn down repairs simply due to time issues, but now combined with my trusted agents, we’re back at it because I have a God given talent, and I can’t spoil God’s gifts. For now, enjoy our articles until you need us, and remember that we negotiate, offer coupons, and we don’t leave jobs half done or half baked.
