May 1st - Cut the Cord - Things to Consider Before Firing Your Cable Company
Safe Disposal of Data Storage Devices

There are many reasons to cut the cord.  Most do so to save money. Others do it to have better choices and just to be able to fire their cable company. There are many choices of products and equipment, as well as services that are now available to let us change the way we view video content.  This video presentation will help you understand many of the newest possibilities for TV viewing and what to look for to satisfy you and your family.

Do you have old hard drives, tape cartridges or USB Flash drives that you no longer need, but may still contain sensitive information?  What about drives that no longer work?  We will talk about ways to process them for disposal so your information is not at risk.
