Set up new Mac for us and gave new life to an older computer by upgrading it

12 November 2017

Written by

From

Orinda, CA

We'd not been upgrading for a long time and our old computer was still running 10.4 and running poorly and didn't have a useable browser on it. We bought a new computer and printer and Michael set that up and breathed new life into the old one and helped familiarize us with new features like iCloud and Time Machine, etc. He showed great patience and expertise in bringing us "up to speed"!

Here’s my favorite thing about Michael - he listens. He listened, asked questions, together we identified the problems, and then he went to work on solutions. What a relief to finally have a go-to MAC person I can trust.

Martinez, CA

Mike set up my new MacBook Air and printer and Time Capsule backup and transferred data including my precious pictures from a very old Mac which another tech service told me couldn't be done. He also came and helped out later on short notice after a malware incident and made sure my system was safe.

Quick Response & On Point Problem Resolution

01 February 2017

Written by

From

Pleasanton, CA

My Time Machine had been periodically blinking on & off amber. Online forum help at Apple said do a reset. That did not help. I thought my Time Machine might have failed. Mike responded quickly to my contact even though he was in field on another job. He easily walked me through a firmware download for the Time Machine, which immediately corrected the problem. He knew exactly what the problem was & provided a fast remedy. It is very reassuring to have a knowledgeable Apple consultant like Mike to call & fall back on whenever computer problems arise.

Moraga, CA

We had the good fortune of first acquiring the services of GalvanicMac at least five years ago. Since then, we've relied on his expertise to not only trouble shoot issues as they arise, but to completely configure our home's wireless system. Dependable as the day is long, responsive and available when called upon...and always a delight to work with. We've referred him to our other Mac friends and will do so again whenever the opportunity arises. Can't recommend him more highly.

With deadlines looming and our network in shambles, Michael responded immediately to our systems crisis. Without his help, we would have been unable to fulfill our obligations to our clients. That result would have been unacceptable on every possible level. We 1) contacted him in the morning, 2) he came to our rescue that same day, 3) he resolved our issues with precision and expertise, and 4) we could not be more appreciative. If you have need of his technical services with any of your Apple products and you make the call, you will not be disappointed.

Mike fixed all my problems.

It was a huge relief being able to hand over my troubleshooting to Mike. I immediately trusted that I was in good hands. It was easy having him in my work space. I appreciated his ability to cut to the chase with the provider, and with the technicians, thus saving lots of time. When the technician was stumped, he was able to solve the problem with a phone call to the technician. He always knew what the next step was, each time there was a glitch. I never worried that I would end up with bigger problems than I started with, which has happened plenty of times when I've tried to troubleshoot myself. I will call him again for advice about my provider choices and for any future problems that might occur.

I was worried about my Mac; it wasn't working well and I was afraid I had messed it up downloading stuff when I was ill. It turned out after Michael's detective work that it was an entirely different problem. He found it, and made sure all the data and the programs were safe as he fixed it. He was patient and very friendly throughout the process, which I really appreciate. Computers are not my forte, and yet they are vital for my professional and personal life. Michael was extremely helpful, and very clever and knowledgable. I would completely recommend Michael's work at the highest level. I am completely satisfied with his work every time he has helped me. I also have learned a lot about my computer and its maintenance each time. Michael is generous with his knowledge and his abilities. A++!

Like Mr. Rodgers, Only Different

26 November 2013

Written by

From

Orinda, CA

So image some childhood friend: Capt. Kangaroo, Mr. Rodgers, what the heck, Superman. Only he doesn't wear a cardigan or a goofy uniform, has a soul patch and is a drummer in a rock-n-roll band in his free time. But none of that is really relevant. What matters is Mike is a helluva nice guy, understands Macs, and birddogs the issue till it's solved. And charges fairly. I'm a busy multi-media professional: producing videos and shooting hundreds of massive RAW stills at a time for clients. I had pretty much crammed a 1TB main drive on my iMac full of digital content; much of it irreplaceable, hardly any of it backed up (I know what you're thinking: idiot! Yeah, me too.) then the drive crashed. I called Mike; he didn't judge. Just took in the information, and proceeded to save me from an incredibly expensive enterprise-level data recovery; got 34,000 images back from oblivion. My Hero. Could be yours too. Call him. Nice guy; probably won't be wearing a cape when he shows up. But could probably get away with it. And while you're at it, if you too are living on the edge of digital denial, ask him about DROBO backup systems. He can help with that too.

I was still using OS X Tiger that was installed at least 7 years ago on a previous iMac, rationalizing that for my post-retirement personal use I didn�t need to upgrade my operating system. I had balked at getting OS X Mountain Lion because of reports from friends who had had problems with that upgrade. However, about 2 weeks ago my Mac started having one problem after another. As Mike performed step-by-step upgrades from Tiger to Leopard to Snow Leopard and pointed out each upgrades strengths and weaknesses, I realized that Mountain Lion should be my new level of OS after all. Mike is: � Well-organized � Very knowledgeable and competent � A good teacher, giving clear explanations and answers to my questions � Up to date on all things Mac � Patient (extremely patient during L-O-N-G phone call to internet provider about my email problems) � Persistent with solving unexpected problems � Logical in his search-and-fix methods and procedures � Friendly, with a keen sense of humor (essential for me) � Forward-thinking with recommendations for the future � Dedicated to job/task to the end, regardless of approaching sunset � Loaded with eye-opening troubleshooting skills � Quite fair with his charges for consulting

I was having internet connection problems with my Mac. I first hired another consultant, who was recommended by a friend; however, it turned out that he did not really understand how a Mac operates and was unable to help. I researched for another and found Michael on the Apple website. What we thought would be straightforward turned out to be more complicated but Michael stayed until it was finished (he started at 1pm and stayed until 9pm). I am very happy with the results and could tell from the get-go that Michael's knowledge base was far superior to the prior consultant (who was not an Apple certified consultant). I will seek Michael's assistance in the future as other issues arise.

The GalvanicMac consultant diagnosed and made an architecture change to my home wireless network that corrected longstanding performance and reliability issues. Although the change he implemented turned out to be fairly straightforward, a solution to my wireless problems had nevertheless eluded multiple Apple Care level 2 tech support agents for AirPort products, as well as an extended troubleshooting session conducted by a "genius" with the actual hardware components at an Apple Store. My home network has now been running reliably for two weeks since the service call with GalvanicMac. GalvanicMac scheduled me for a service call within 24 hours from the time of my initial contact. The consultant called me the morning of the appointment to set expectations for his arrival time. He promptly identified a configuration simplification that fixed the issues. He verified the wireless network and all attached clients functioned as expected. And he was quite conservative in billing only for his productive time on site.

Mike not only solved my problem but also gave me a lot of great security advice and tips on how to do various things, without breaking his stride and while staying on task. He accomplished everything and stayed within the original estimate. I'm going to call him with any future computer needs.

Michael Tyler was AWESOME!!

Livermore CA

Michael was both a patient and not rushed. He was on time, and fully equipted for all tools he needed for the job. He listened to my questions, situations I had encountered, and problems I had. He got my hard drives working which in and of itself was amzaing, as they wouldn't get power in them at my home! He showed me my that my information on my HD's wren't lost and even moved some to organize my iMac. We could have gone further and completely finished the project, if only I could afford him for ALL THE WORK. But, unfortunatly I could not. But he did give me good direction as to how to begin, and what to search for even some online freeware for info. I would highly recomend him to anyone needing one on one help with their Apple product. Thanks Michael for all your work and for "working with" me on all levels. I really appreciate you and your time.

I have been working with GalvanicMac for several years. And I have been rescued many times. Plus I have saved money because Galvanic helped me upgrade existing equipment rather than buy new. I highly recommend GalvanicMac Consulting

Michael has solved many thorny problems for my family and me in our home offices. These include synching to Mobile Me, troubleshooting I-tunes and printer issues, transferring and organizing documents and photos, and so on. He is always knowledgeable, patient and thorough, and willing to teach the end user important lessons on using the Apple technology. I would recommend him to anyone needing assistance with Apple products.
