One Last Day with Automatic

I bought my first Automatic Link-Auto OBD in 2013.

Six years and many days later, I am using Automatic for one more day. Today is the last day.

in 2017, Automatic Labs Inc. was acquired by SiriusXM and changed its business model.

Automatic will be shutting down its service at 11:59 pm, PT, on May 28, 2020.

Users can download personal information and driving data through June 28, 2020

For now I have not found any good alternative to Automatic service. Without getting into the details, I attest that Automatic Emergency Service did help me.

Refurbishing Old Computers

During this “Stay at Home” periods, I have been refurbishing/upgrading a lot of computers. Mostly for people who are now staying home for most of the days of the week.

As they are staying home a lot more than usual in addition to the need for video teleconferencing, they found out that their computers are not adequate for what they want and need to do.

I have been scouring for CPUs, RAMs and Graphics Cards to upgrade these computers. Replacing many Intel CPUs with their better counterparts. I also installed SSD in lieu of traditional spinning Hard Drives.

Most computers I had been refurbishing were so full of dusts. They then to isolate and trap heats in the computer, causing degradation of performance and excessive fan noise.

For each and every computer that I work on, I always make sure they are clean before I brought them back.
