Andy (L) and Dave (R) hand over "the goods" to Charlie and Cindy Brown
When Cindy Brown received an email from Geek Housecalls telling her that her family had won the Geeksgiving grand prize drawing for an Apple iPad, her first reaction was: “is this real?” And who can blame her? With so many supposedly free iPads spattered across seemingly every website in contests and giveaways, it’s hard to decipher what’s real and what’s just a come-on. So Cindy called her husband Charlie (at that time on assignment in Dubai UAE), and he gave her sensible advice; “If it’s from Geek Housecalls, it must be real, but call them and ask.” (I like that… trust but verify.)
So that morning, Cindy called Geek Housecalls and talked to Andy who greeted her with “Congratulations Cindy! You really won the Geek Housecalls iPad!”
Sally Brown quickly stakes her claim in the new iPad, demonstrating to Mom, Dad, and sister Joanna how to connect to her MacBook and sync up with iTunes.
Cindy and Charles Brown and their daughters Joanna and Sally have been customers of Geek Housecalls since 2004 when they first contacted Geek Housecalls for help with a couple Windows laptops that were having trouble accessing their wireless network, and one that was freezing up on them frequently. After their first service call, they knew they had found their perfect home computer support team, and have used Geek Housecalls ever since. While they started out like many families with all Microsoft Windows PCs and laptop computers, more recently, Cindy decided to take the plunge into the Apple world and got Macbooks for herself and her daughters. They were pleasantly surprised to learn that Geek Housecalls services both Windows and Mac computers and had one of our ‘hybrid’ PC/MAC geeks out to assist with set up and wireless networking, as well as data transfer from the older Windows computers to their new Macs. And it was one such service call in November of 2010 that got the Browns entered into the Geeksgiving contest.
And what would a grand prize celebration be without balloons in Geek Housecalls' signature yellow, white, and teal?
Geeksgiving is a contest Geek Housecalls holds each year around Thanksgiving time and generally involves giveaways to customers and mail-in entrants. In the first-ever Geeksgiving in 2009, Geek Housecalls gave away ‘turkeys’ in the form of supermarket gift cards to dozens of daily winners and held a grand prize drawing for an Acer One Netbook computer. The 2010 Geeksgiving celebration included weekly winners of Geek Housecalls Gift certificates valued at $150 worth of service, and of course our grand prize was the iPad that went to the Browns.
