Justin. MacCOG: Our "goto" Mac guy. Can fix a majority of things online without even being in our home. But his knowledge and expertise of all things Mac is amazing. Has helped me set up new phones, deal with network problems, bugs, and keeps my laptops up and running, even has helped me organize my digital life. Hard to find a more dependable, and informed "Techie" who is well humored and hard working as Justin. He loves what he does and it shows. I sort of stumped him for a bit about a Safari glitch I was experiencing. It re-occurred a couple of times and he didn't even charge me for at least an hour of diagnostic work because he felt he initially misdiagnosed the problem. Business ethics? In this day and age? He's a keeper--hope he never retires.

We are thrilled with our experience. He is knowledgable, patient (but moves quickly), efficient, and a good guy. We couldn't be happier and it's easy to recommend his services. I do, and I will continue to do, just that.

I have known Justin Bradshaw, of MacCog for over 7 years, and he has assisted me on various Apple Computers, iOS devices, printers, etc, over this period. Justin recently helped me purchase the latest iMac, and he completely re-programmed and installed this wonderful machine for me. Justin has vast technical knowledge even beyond Apple related products and his communication skills and punctuality have been most helpful in teaching me how to use my various gadgets. I would highly recommend his services to anyone!

I've known Justin Bradshaw for a number of years and he's worked with me on a variety of tasks. Having cut my teeth on an i-pad and i-phone I migrated to an I-mac just before this past Christmas (2012.) Justin was an invaluable help in getting my old data switched over, setting up my new computer and giving me enough insight to be dangerous. I'm still a long way from being an expert but know Justin helped put me on the right track. I would have no reservations about recommending him. He's very dependable, has a thorough knowledge of Apple (and non-Apple) products and is able to explain things in a clear and concise manner. Harold Atlanta, Ga.

As wonderful as the geniuses at the Apple store are, they are no match for the in-home support that Justin Bradshaw provided. He was able to solve networking problems among computers and printers in a shared home office setting. He handled an upgrade of Apple software that was akin to moving from elementary to high school while skipping middle school -- and didn't lose any date, photos or contacts along the way!! He provided great follow-up phone support as well which was a great help as we used all the new things on our own. He is knowledgeable and patient. We recommend him highly!

Justin exceeds expectations with intelligent solutions

I've used Justin Bradshaw to troubleshoot Mac issues and to create new solutions for my home use and for my small business for the past 3 years. Naturally, he's great at solving problems and getting things to "just work." Even better, he suggests new and better ways to get my work done. Time after time, he has shown me how to get a better result with a better app or better hardware. Plus, he knows I'm frugal and looks for the best cheap solutions! Twice I had a problem that NO ONE could solve, and Justin kept looking with a "whatever it takes" attitude until he figured it out. Besides being experienced and smart, Justin is resourceful, unafraid to pull in other experts when needed. My only caveat is to be clear when you just a quick fix, because Justin is always looking to add more value (he really cares about quality). So be clear about what you want, and you will be very happy indeed!

here's a guy who really knows what he's doing.......

justin is an ace with seemingly everything techno: the hardware, the software, the internet, the apps. he's the smart surgeon who keeps abreast of new techniques and information. plus, he's a great guide - he really takes you through the steps, shows you what, where, how. beyond all that, the cherry on the cake of his knowledge and ability is his sheer personableness, his five-star personality. there's quite a conflict here: if TOO many people make demands on his expertise, 'what about me?' I'm tempted to say: DON'T HIRE HIM! leave him for us! the privileged few, my husband and I being part of that circle. but of course, the point is: he's eminently recommendable. he's the real deal.

Genius Mac help from a real human being

Beverly Hills

Justin Bradshaw and his team at MacCog have been working with us for almost a decade, ensuring our personal and business computers function efficiently and seamlessly. He has seen us through just about every computer headache you can imagine. Over the years, Justin has been available at all hours of the day to help us through computer emergencies, retrieving lost data, and even remotely helping us without being at our actual computers. We are able to keep up to date on the newest technology available to make our lives and business run smoothly. Our backups, from personal photographs and videos of our children, to business material are all so well archived that a recent computer hard drive failure resulted in no losses and very little anxiety. Justin has saved the day more days than we care to remember. Most of all, Justin talks like a human being, not the computer genius that he is, explaining things easily, and is actually fun to work with. He is a true asset to our lives, and we are so thankful to have him on our team!

Amazing Mac Consultant

I've used Justin numerous times for a variety of reasons. From fixing problems I've had with my Mac (4 years old) to teaching me how to use different features (on Mac and iphone/ipad), there's literally nothing this guy can't do. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. Also of note is his great response time.

My wife and I have relied on Justin for a number of years now - we both run small businesses and use our computers all the time for business as well as personal needs, and Justin has consistently kept us up to date, streamlined the way we do things, and kept our Macs/iPhones/iPads running smoothly. He also recently saved crucial information on one of our hard drives when we thought we'd lost it forever - invaluable! Plus he's a super nice guy and very easy to deal with. I would highly recommend him to anyone who's having issues with their Mac or who is simply looking for a consultant to help them get the most out of their digital life.

The best Mac support I've ever had

What can I say about Justin other then I would never hire anybody else to touch or my maintain any of my business or personal websites. Additionally because of the honesty and integrity Justin has full remote access to both business and personal computers to maintain and upgrade at anytime. I should mention that Justin is amazing at not only troubleshooting, website development, and problem solving which reduces are cost but he knows how to drive traffic to our sites better then anyone else in the business. Just by his understanding and tools we have managed to be at the top of every google search that brings in over 1,000_s of visitors to our site monthly. That is amazing

THE Mac Guru

Los Angeles, CA

I've been working with Justin Bradshaw for over a year and I've been extremely impressed with his friendly, no-stress attitude and specifically how quickly he manages to complete the tasks I give him while also getting to the root of the problems. I work at a small company where new things pop up every day, questions seem to pile up when he's not around but the minute he walks in the office, he's happy to address any and all problems. There are no stupid questions. It's also nice to have a Tech Consultant that isn't judgmental of how many folders I have on my desktop. Technology moves fast but MacCognoscenti moves faster.

Fabulous help! This guy (Justin) is super friendly, patient and kind of a genius. I've done a number of sessions with him now. We always have fun and I've learned so much and saved myself so much time. He's a Northwestern grad too, smart, I'd highly recommend him. He just helped me sync my phone to my new car. Highly recommend him.
