Terms & Regulations

Our schedule changes daily, depending on other clients, traffic conditions and public transportation. You should allow us a one hour margin from your appointed time. If we schedule for 5:00pm, we might arrive as late as 6:00pm, but we always try our best to be punctual

Time = Money
When your technician comes over, please remember that time is money. Although we work very fast, we are not psychic and can never be 100% sure how much time a certain task could take. The charge is by an hourly rate, even if it takes 4 hours to do something you thought would take only 2 hours.

One Hour Minimum
The first charge is always for arriving/traveling and the first hour of work. Even if your problem is fixed after 9 minutes, you will still have to pay for the entire hour. After the first hour, charges will be made for parts of an hour (for example, 2 hours and 10 minutes).

We accept cash or checks (with a preference for cash). If you are a business, we can invoice you, and set up a time to be paid. For remote/online service, we accept payment through or Google Checkout.

Coverage Area
Since this is New York, most of our traveling takes place on public transportation, which means that if you live too far from the city, there will be an extra charge for the first hour (the hour that includes the traveling fee).

Zuckerberg's control of Facebook may be a threat to the value of the stock, Macquarie says (FB)

  • “Zuckerberg controls the vote and the company. If he wants to change something, he can, even if it negatively impacts near-term financial results,” two Macquarie analysts say.
  • “As financial analysts, we tend to get a bit concerned when we see vote-controlling CEOs defining what is meaningful and interactive,” they told clients.
  • They rate the stock “outperform.”
  • But their critique is a reminder that Zuckerberg has a lot of power, and he makes mistakes.

Mark Zuckerberg’s control of a majority of Facebook’s stock — which gives him absolute power over the company even though it is publicly traded — could damage the value of those shares, according to Macquarie Capital analysts Benjamin Schachter and Ed Alter.


They voiced their opinion after Zuckerberg announced that the priorities of the News Feed in Facebook would change, based on how “trustworthy” users believe those sources are.

“The changes announced by FB should remind investors that Zuckerberg controls the vote and the company. If he wants to change something, he can, even if it negatively impacts near-term financial results,” the pair told clients on January 17, in a note seen by Business Insider.

“It is concerning to us that Zuckerberg’s focus is defined by ‘meaningful social interactions’ that are more interactive and less passive. There is much to admire in this focus, but as financial analysts, we tend to get a bit concerned when we see vote-controlling CEOs defining what is meaningful and interactive,” Schacter and Alter said. It is relatively rare for equity analysts to criticise Zuckerberg, given the stock’s meteoric rise.

In one sense, they are merely restating the obvious: Zuckerberg has long retained majority control of the stock, and has litigated and maneuvered to maintain that control even as he spends less time running the company on a day-to-day basis. So the note isn’t a huge surprise.

But it is also a restatement of the fact that under Zuckerberg, Facebook has made mistakes. Most recently, in late 2016, Zuckerberg dismissed as “crazy” the idea that fake news propagated by Russian agents could have had an impact on the US presidential election that year. More recently, however, Facebook has admitted that 126 million people saw paid Russian propaganda on the social network before the election.

This latest announcement by Zuckerberg is an attempt to course-correct for the apparent ease with which disreputable media publishers can game the News Feed algorithm, and drive up bogus news inside your Facebook account.

Zuckerberg has long been obsessed with news inside Facebook. In 2013, he announced a redesign of the News Feed by saying, “What we’re trying to do is give everyone in the world the best personalized newspaper we can.” He encapsulated that vision with an illustration of a mock local newspaper called the Monterey Times. In 2014, he tried again, launching a news-only app called Paper.

Monterey Times Facebook newspaperCrucially, Zuck’s vision for that “newspaper” has been local, personal, and relevant. His misreading of the scale of Russian influence in the 2016 election, and this latest move to quash fake news, suggests that he has a distaste for national, international or political news in the News Feed.

The Macquarie analysts — who rate FB as “outperform” — wrote:

“Again, we admire much of what he is doing, but from a purely near-term financial view, the headlines of the past year regarding social media’s influence on society increases non-financial risks for FB, and these moves by Zuckerberg highlight that risk.”

“… Zuckerberg plainly stated he expects time spent and some measurements of engagement will go down, but believes the changes will be good for the community and the business over the long-term.”

“… It’s Zuck’s world, we all just post in it – This is also a casual reminder that when it comes to sweeping changes on Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg is realistically the only one with a say in the matter. As of FB’s most recent proxy statement last year, Zuckerberg holds 59.7% of the voting power in the company. Investors with a differing opinion have little recourse. GOOGL has a somewhat similar situation with Larry Page and Sergey Brin holding 51.1% of the vote, as well as Eric Schmidt with another 5.6%. However, the same isn’t true across all large cap tech and social media, with none of the executives at AAPL, AMZN, or TWTR having full control of the vote. While we think that this change at Facebook is unlikely to stir much serious debate on the matter, it does serve as a reminder of the reality of the situation.”

The single dish you have to try from every UK restaurant with 2 or more Michelin stars

artichoke broth with smoked yolk and winter leaves

As a restaurateur, you need to be pretty exceptional to even be considered for a Michelin star. It takes a lot more to win a second. And to get the elusive third star, your food has to be practically unrivalled.

Business Insider spoke to the UK’s most prestigious restaurants to compile a list of the best dishes to try at every two- and three- Michelin starred restaurant in the UK.

Some of their dishes have been on the restaurants’ menus from day one. Others are personal favourites of the chefs, and more still earned their spot by being a hit with the customers.

At the time of publication, only 23 restaurants in the UK have two or three Michelin stars. Scroll on to discover the one dish to try from every Michelin two- and three-starred restaurant in the UK, ranked in alphabetical order and including the price for and a description of each dish.

(N.B. Prices for meals and set menus don’t include wine.)

SEE ALSO: Every Michelin-starred restaurant in the UK where you can dine for £30 or less

Halibut, oyster, and seaweed at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester in Mayfair, London — three Michelin stars

Tomato, garlic, cuttlefish, tripe, thyme, veal stock, and white wine make up this ultimate comfort food. Served with a herb salad, and a slice of cake to mop up the juices, this gratin holds many fond memories for Bosi whose grandma used to cook it for the whole family.

“It’s a dish I cook myself at the restaurant as there isn’t a recipe for it!” Bosi said.

Cost: £24 as an entrée on the à la carte menu, or £85 as part of a three-course tasting menu.

Assiette Anne-Marie at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons in Great Milton, Oxfordshire — two Michelin stars

Throughout the spring and summer months, the gardeners at Belmond Le Manoir pick as many as 150 courgette flowers each day. This vibrant plate of vegetables represents the full cycle of spring. The courgette flower is stuffed with garden peas, baby courgettes, mint, marjoram and extra virgin olive oil. The dish is now named after head-gardener, Anne Marie Owens.

Cost: £170 as part of the three-course Specialities Menu.

“My mum’s tripe and cuttlefish gratin” at Claude Bosi at Bibendum in Chelsea, London — two Michelin stars

Tomato, garlic, cuttlefish, tripe, thyme, veal stock, and white wine make up this ultimate comfort food. Served with a herb salad, and a slice of cake to mop up the juices, this gratin holds many fond memories for Bosi whose grandma used to cook it for the whole family.

OF COURSE governments won't give up control of money – that’s why crypto is crashing

Crypto market cap

  • One reason people are selling out of bitcoin is because governments are moving against cryptocurrencies.
  • The promise of bitcoin is that it’s anonymous and secure and the government can’t touch it. That promise is unfulfilled.
  • Governments are not going to stand idly by while people replace or abandon fiat currency.
  • That’s why cryptocurrencies will always be weak credit tokens compared to cash — governments may be annoying but they aren’t stupid.

The total market cap of all cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, stood at $531 billion just before the weekend, down from $830 billion at it’s peak. That’s a drop of about 36% in less than a month — a collapse that qualifies as a market crash.

People are casting around for an explanation. Why should this wildly popular new form of payment exchange, which feels like the future, suddenly drop in value? There are a large number of good reasons to sell bitcoin. And that’s part of the problem — on most days it feels like there are more reasons to sell than to buy.

But the most obvious headwind comes from governments.

Russia, South Korea, China, Algeria, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nepal, and Kyrgyzstan have all outright banned bitcoin or made noises about tightening regulation around crypto that would make owning the currency much less attractive. South Korea is moving toward an outright ban even though 10% of the entire bitcoin market is traded in South Korean won, according to Coin Hills.

Last week, the European Securities & Markets Authority said it might consider banning contracts-for-difference based on cryptos.

Governments are testing one of bitcoin’s central promises: That the alt-currency is somehow immune to regulation because it offers uncrackable security with total anonymity. In theory, cryptocurrency enthusiasts will tell you, crypto allows you to hoard staggering wealth and the government can’t touch it. (That’s why criminals like it so much.)

It’s a nice dream but it requires you to believe that governments will stand idly by while people abandon fiat currency. The government is not going to sit on its hands while people figure out how to stop paying taxes on both their income and capital gains because they are accepting payments via crypto. That would be insane. If there is one thing that governments are good at doing, it’s making sure the government never goes away.

Of course the government wants to tax your bitcoin earnings. Of course the government isn’t going to let you pay taxes in bitcoin (it’s going to require real currency).

It’s not just about creaming off the tax, or making sure the government can see how you earn money.

It’s about the basis of civil society itself.

Money — fiat currency — underpins everything. Literally, everything.

Governments only stay in business because they have the power to control how much cash flows through the economy. They can create new money or reduce the amount in circulation. Their interest-rate-setting powers control the cost of everything, from the price of patching a pothole in the street to the cost of war in the Middle East.

If cryptocurrencies came even remotely close to becoming the preferred form of cash, then governments would be out of business. The idea that The Man is going abdicate that power to software? Dream on.

Bitcoin will lose this battle.

Governments will move more slowly than tech, sure. But eventually, they will wrestle control of crypto. At that point cryptocurrencies become mere credit tokens valued in actual cash. For most people, cash will remain the more useful medium, and the more valuable one.
