World Backup Day – A Guide To Backing Up

A guide to backing up your data

World Back Up Day is just around the corner and the smart way to celebrate is by backing up your information!

Better saved than sorry

Backing up is a term used to describe the way you safeguard your digital information. With much of our daily lives focused around technology we often forget that technology can fail and because it can fail your personal data may be at risk. It’s important to back up your data regularly to ensure that you don’t lose anything. The most important lesson in backing up is that simply moving your files to an external hard drive isn’t enough, you should strive to store your data on 2 locations. Hard Drives, whether it’s the one in your laptop, or an external one, will fail eventually. So having your data in 2 locations is the safest course of action!

Backing Up Options

There are a lot of options that you can use to back up your information such as cloud based services or physical external hard drives. Here are some options that you can choose from.

Cloud Based Services: Cloud based services are storage options that are housed in other locations that have connectivity to your electronic devices. These services include Apple’s iCloud, Google Drive, Microsoft’s One Drive, Dropbox or a server that you run yourself. Cloud based services are great options for people always on the move or for groups of people that want to collaborate. With cloud based services you can edit, store, and share your information with your other devices almost instantly. Most of these services come with a monthly subscription fee and that can be a real deterrent for some. The downside is that uploading to a cloud based service can take much longer, and the connection isn’t as stale, meaning it might not be the most efficient way to share large files.

Physical Drives: Physical drives are hard drives that can be plugged in to your devices allowing you to transport your information to them. These can include small and portable USB drives or large stationary drives. LaCie or G-Technology are popular brands for these devices. Physical drives are affordable one time purchases and you can keep the drive anywhere you like such as a fire proof safe or a safety deposit box. External hard drives can be very safe and durable, but require a wired connection, which means it’s harder to do on the go.

Multiple Devices: A lot of people forget that much of what is on one device may also be on another device they own. If you take pictures with your phone and upload those to your computer, if you didn’t delete them after import then they still reside on your phone. Same goes for things like documents, emails, and videos. If one of your devices fails it is a good idea to see if you can retrieve any lost information from another device. Duplicating your data is by far the best option.

What size should I choose?

Choosing a storage size for your backup can be a confusing task. Megabytes, gigabytes, and terabytes sound similar and are often confused for one or the other. Most options come in either gigabytes or terabytes as they are affordable and have a capacity that can house most types of files.

The first thing to consider is how much space you are using. In order to find this information you will need to consult the storage settings on your device. If you use Mac OS X then the information can be found by going into the About this Mac setting and navigating to the storage section. If you are on iOS (iPhone or iPad) you can go to settings, then general, then manage storage to see how much you are using.

It is a good idea to buy more storage than you need. If you have a 500 gigabyte drive on your computer and you’re using 400 then you need at least a 500 gigabyte size back up option. By ensuring you have enough space to back up your whole hard drive you don’t have to buy two drives. If you have multiple devices then you may need to adjust accordingly.

Some useful information:
  • 1 Gigabyte = 1024 Megabytes
  • 1 Terabyte = 1024 Gigabytes
  • A 1 Terabyte drive can roughly fit equivalent of 200,000 songs, or 500 hours of movies, or 310,000 photos, or 85,899,345 pages of plain text documents.

Which option should I choose?

It’s a matter of personal preference as each option has it’s own benefit. An assessment of your lifestyle and needs may help you decide. Individuals who travel often times enjoy cloud storage while those who don’t travel sometimes enjoy physical drive back ups.

Backing up in Mac OSX

Apple makes backing up your computer very simple with a program called Time Machine. Time Machine utilizes a physical drive and automatically backs up your computer for you every hour or when changes are made.

To set up Time Machine navigate to your System Preferences>Time Machine and select the disk you would like to back up on. Then sit back and enjoy some time to yourself while your Mac backs up automatically.

Using iCloud as a back up on Mac is very simple as well. To set up iCloud go to System Preferences>iCloud and sign in. Once you are signed in, select what you would like backed up and let your Mac do the rest. iCloud will not back up every single file like Time Machine will but it will back up the most important things like photos and documents.

Backing Up on iOS

To back up on iOS you have two options that are provided to you from Apple.
To back up to iCloud navigate to Settings>iCloud>Backups. From here, tap back up now and your device will take care of the rest. To back up to iTunes you first need a computer that has iTunes installed on it. Next plug your device in and select it in the upper left hand corner of iTunes. There will be an option here that says Back Up Now. Click it and your device will do the rest. Once you have selected either of these options your device will automatically back up to either iCloud or iTunes.

Come down to your local Simply Store and ask a staff member about backing up and what you can do to secure your data!

Tech Tips – Travelling with your iPhone or iPad

Travelling with your iPhone/iPad

Simply Computing Travel blog

The Dilemma

Many of us consider our iPad and/or iPhone an indispensable tool in our everyday lives, but should you take it with you when you go on holiday?

Some people travel specifically to “unplug”. There are also lots of things you definitely shouldn’t do if your device accompanies you on vacation. These include checking your work email, making expensive long-distance calls and running up huge data charges by forgetting to switch off your apps’ automatic updates. Personally, we think you should absolutely bring your iPhone/iPad on your next vacation.

Here’s 10 reasons why:

  1. Travel Alerts

    The world isn’t always as predictable as we might like. Why not let your iPhone/iPad warn you about potential problems? Transit delays, labour strikes, inclement weather and, God forbid, terrorist attacks can all ruin a perfectly planned holiday. Knowing about such problems as soon as the occur can be essential in mitigating their impact. Several free apps can help with this, including Waze, Accuweather and App in the Air. Setting up a Google alert for local news can help keep you abreast of emergencies. Many airlines offer SMS texting if your flight is delayed.
  2. Mobile Check-In and Ticket Purchases

    simply computing travel blog

    Waiting in line or searching for a printer are a waste of your previous vacation time. Why not use your iPad/iPhone to skip the cue and go paperless? Some airlines, including Air Canada, now have apps that allow you to check in and get a digital boarding pass, eliminating the need to stand in line to see a ticketing agent. Delta Air Lines has even gone a step further, automatically checking in passengers who download the most recent version of their app.

    Many tourist attractions, including museums and theatres, allow you to pre-book or pre-purchase tickets via iPhone- and iPad-friendly websites. Such e-purchases often involve a small fee, but can be well worth the extra cost at popular destinations such as the Vatican Museums and Colosseum where 2 to 3 hour ticket cues are not uncommon during the summer.

  3. In-Transit Entertainment

    Unless you have a private jet and limo, travelling to and from your destination can be long and uncomfortable. Why not let your iPhone/iPad entertain you along the way? With the storage capacity available on today’s devices, you should have no problem pre-loading your iPhone/iPad with tons of music, videos, games, e-books and audiobooks. Furthermore, e-books and audiobooks not only entertain, but also save space and weight in your luggage. Overdrive, Kindle and Kobo are all great free apps for this. Overdrive accesses items from your public library, while both Kindle and Kobo offer a limited selection of free novels.

  4. Planning as You Go

    Some people meticulously plan and book their vacation months in advance. Others prefer the freedom of winging it. If you fall in the latter category, why not use your iPhone/iPad to choose your activities and lodging as you go? Spur-of-the-moment vacationing can be exciting, but it can also leave you vulnerable to local price-gouging and wasted time.

    Although most people use sites like Expedia and Hotels.com before leaving home, these travel comparison sites are also available in app form for same-day bookings on the go. The Viator app can help you find last-minute guided tours with spots still available, while Time Out can help you purchase tickets to local concerts and events.

  5. Navigating a Strange City

    Simply Computing Travel Blog ipad

    Getting around in a strange city can be daunting. Why not employ your iPhone/iPad to keep from getting lost? By turning on your device’s GPS, you’ll always know where you are. This function can also be used within tourist-focussed navigation apps, such as Ulmon. The free version of Ulmon even includes one free CityMap2Go, which you can then personalize and use offline.

    If you’re going to hop aboard the local transit system, cities with extensive metro and bus routes like New York and Tokyo offer their own apps. Using a third-party app, however, can help you compare all your transit options. Citymapper, for example, is available for 30 cities and even includes Uber integration.

  6. Communicating with the Locals

    Not everyone speaks English and charade-like gestures can only get you so far. Why not let your iPhone/iPad be your translator? Even if you memorize some common tourist phrases in the local tongue before leaving home, you’re probably not going to be prepared for something like “our faucet is leaking” or “I lost my ticket.” Luckily there are free apps that can translate just about anything you might type in. Google Translate will even save you that step, translating text viewed through your camera, whether it be a street sign, brochure or menu.

  7. Touring

    Guided tours can be expensive, difficult to schedule and limiting in how much you see. Why not let your iPhone/iPad guide you instead? Every day more apps are being developed to tour visitors through popular destination. These often include detailed information on important sites, as well as instructions or audio-guides for walking and driving tours. Most of these apps require outright or in-app purchases, but some free options do exist.

    Rick Stevens’ Audio Europe, for example, is both free and an excellent resource for dozens of European locales. In addition to third-party apps, some museums, such as the USS Iowa in Palm Beach and Castel Sant’Angelo in Rome, have developed their own extensive audio-guides.

  8. Photos and Videos

    Simply Computing iPad travel blog

    The photo and video quality of iPads and iPhones has improved with each successive model. Why not ditch toting a separate camera and just use the iPhone/iPad you’re already carrying? By using your device as your camera, you can email or post photos immediately instead of waiting to get back to the hotel to download your camera’s SD card.

    With a portable and light-weight selfie stick, you can also avoid handing your device over to strangers. But be warned, more and more places, including Disney theme parks and the Palace of Versailles, are banning the use of these helpful aids.

  9. Money Matters

    Between currency exchange math and jetlag, keeping track of your finances on vacation can be a larger headache than at home. Why not let your iPhone/iPad to help with the math and expense tracking? Everyone wants to splurge a little on vacation, but most of us have to maintain some sort of budget. In a travel budget app, such as Trail Wallet or Trabee Pocket, you can set a daily budget, input receipts as you go and generate a report when you get home.

    You can also quickly calculate currency conversions to decide if something is worth purchasing. If you’re travelling with friends and need to split the bill, Splitwise or CostSplit will do all the math for you. In Splitwise you can even attach Paypal accounts to settle-up automatically and in CostSplit you can split expenses unevenly.

  10. Emergencies

    Sometimes bad things happen to good people on holiday. Why not carry your iPhone/iPad with you in case for extra security? With payphones gone the way of the dinosaur, it’s prudent carry a phone with which you can call emergency services, a cab or your embassy. It’s also the fastest way for your loved ones back home to get in touch if your house gets broken into or parent falls ill, for example. You can also store digital copies of your travel documents, including passport and travel/medical insurance policy, on your devices.


There you have it – 10 great reasons you should not only pack your iPhone/iPad on your next vacation, but also use it throughout for a better holiday experience! Just remember a few more things.

  • If you’re going overseas, you’ll probably need to purchase a travel adapter to recharge your device.
  • If you plan to make calls or use data, you should ask your provider about travel add-on packages instead of paying as you go.
  • In case of loss or theft, you should password protect all your important information and use iTunes to digitally back-up your device before leaving home.
  • It’s prudent to set up a Cloud account or pack a file storage device so you don’t run out of memory for all your amazing photos.

That’s it from this weeks Tech Tips blog, remember above all to stay safe while travelling and enjoy using your Apple devices to get the mostout of your vacations! Bon Voyage!

Under the Simply Spotlight – 7th Edition

Welcome to our blog feature, “Under the Simply Spotlight”, where we spoke to one of our longest standing staff members for their insights into working at Simply Computing. Each month we put one of our staff under the spotlight so that you can get to know the people who provide our outstanding service. For this edition, we spoke to Dick Wareham, who has been with Simply Computing for over 30 years. So read on for a short interview that gives a flavour of who we are.

Under the simply spotlight
What was your first job
1964 I started as an office assistant at a real estate developer/surveyor’s office. Finally working in the field as a land surveyor

What’s your current position in Simply Computing, and how long have you been in this role?
I contract my services to Simply Computing completing inventory audits, assist the buyer and complete all the custom Apple CPU orders. I’ve been in this particular role since 2008.

Where did you work before coming to Simply Computing?
Scotiabank where I worked for 15 years in consumer credit and audit. In 1985 I joined Strider Computers with Gary Gumley and Colin Dawes (the initial company that later became Simply Computing in 1990). As an aside, I picked the name Simply Computing which emphasized the ease of use of Apple and presenting computing in layman’s terms without all the Computer(Nerd) Jargon.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
What is spare time haha? I keep myself busy though, in my spare time I enjoy stamp collecting as a hobby. I also like giving back through community service through Rotary. Currently, I’m assisting in the Starfish project, which provides two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners and snacks for local vulnerable children to take home every weekend. So that is something I really enjoy!

What’s your most memorable travel experience?
Camping on the shores of Lake Como in Italy in 1962. Then returning to camp to see it all washed out and laughing only to discover my tent was one of those that was swept away. Altogether it was a great trip though, I enjoyed sampling ice cream throughout Europe, and yes, Italian really is the best.

What’s you favourite food?
That’s a tough one, the Italian ice cream comes close! But I would have to go for steak. A very close second is liver and onions though.

Do you have any advice for anyone starting out in the technology industry?
My advice would be to devour knowledge and find a niche that gives you a specialty. Tech is changing fast and having a specialty is going to really stand to you.

Many thanks to Dick for taking part in this latest edition of “Under the Simply Spotlight”. Just one of our experienced and dedicated staff members working diligently to bring you the latest and greatest in affordable technology. That’s it for this month’s edition of “Under the Simply Spotlight”, we hope you’ve enjoyed this insight into the staff that make our organization what it is! Stay tuned for our next edition.

6 Great Thanksgiving Games & Apps

Simply Computing Thanksgiving Games apps

6 Games & Apps to keep the family entertained this Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a chance to reconnect with all the things we’re grateful for, including family and friends. To help with that, we’ve put together a list of our top 6 games and apps that are sure to lead to laughs (and possibly eventual arguments) for everyone!

1. Heads Up! 

Heads Up! is the smartphone version of that game from Inglorious Basterds where you hold a card on your head and everyone else gets you to guess what it says. A favourite of Ellen DeGeneres, over a billion rounds have been played since it first launched. It costs $1.39, but in our opinion that’s money well spent since it’s a great game for getting everyone involved (sometimes too much so!).


2. SongPop Party

Available on iOS, Android and Facebook, SongPop is the app version of Name That Tune. We highly recommend playing family-style on the big screen! If your family happens to have an AppleTV (currently on sale), this will work even better since the game gets even more competitive when everyone has their own controller (the controller app is a free add-on for any iPhone or iPad.) Maybe just avoid any of the hip hop playlists if you want grandparents to have a chance of keeping up, alternatively include a golden oldies round!


3. SketchParty TV

Drawing games are no novelty, they’ve been around for a while, but this our favourite because it’s less Pictionary and more Win, Lose or Draw. If you do have an AppleTV and iPad, they’ll combine to let each team’s drawer work easily on the tablet while the rest of their team can guess the drawing on the TV itself! If you don’t have an AppleTV/iPad combo with you for Thanksgiving, you can get a similar experience from the Draw Something app instead.


4. Worms 3 

An all round classic, Worms 3 is a turn-based strategy game where each player controls a set of worms, each with different abilities and power ups. Colourful and engaging enough to include the kids, but competitive enough (believe us!) to hold adults interest too. The mobile and tablet version translates exceptionally well to iPhone and iPad. Using your worms to blow up your opponents/cousins with all manner of goofy gadgets and wacky weapons never gets old!


5. Trivia Crack

We all remember the 1999 edition of Trivial Pursuit that sits bashed up in your parents basement, the one that doesn’t yet know that Ben Affleck now has played Batman too, and makes surprisingly often reference to Y2K. Trivia Crack plays similarly to the original Trivial Pursuit but has up-to-the-minute questions and doesn’t require you to hunt down those little coloured triangles that went missing the last time your brother flipped the board over in rage.


6. Just Dance Now

One of the most sophisticated app setups has been created for a game that’s as simple to play as shaking your butt. Just Dance brings the motion-controlled dancing game to phones. Using your smartphone as the sensor, copy the dance moves thrown your way on anything from an AppleTV to a tablet to a laptop. Or just let loose, who cares about winning right? Maybe make sure to tell your aunts in advance that no one wants to see them twerk to “Get Low.”

That’s it for our games and apps guide to get you through Thanksgiving 2017! We hope the above apps help bring families together this holiday weekend. And remember, Simply Computing accepts no responsibility for family disputes caused as a result of the above games! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

G-Tech Week – Everything you need to know before buying a hard drive

Things to know when buying a G-Tech External Hard Drive:

When buying an external hard drive, it’s important to find the right one for your needs. Whether it is backing up family memories, storing 4K video footage or protecting all your important computer data, G-Tech has the solution for you.

They provide a wide range of secure backup devices, that come formatted for Apple out of the box and have at least a 3 year limited warranty on all their products. The following sections will go through a few criteria you should take into
consideration before purchasing.
If you’re in need for a high-quality storage drive, look no further.

Visit us in-store all from August 24th to 31st for a guaranteed discount on G-Tech products, up to $50 off!

Nowadays, the price for a high capacity hard drive is dropping. The average price for a 1TB hard drive is around $100. 1TB is the same as 1,000MB, but let’s put that in perspective. A 1TB hard drive can store about 200,000 photos, 250,000 songs, 76 movies. That’s definitely a lot! G-Tech HDs range from 1TB to 20+TB, ensuring whatever your needs, they’ve got you covered.

Backing Up
G-Tech products are Apple Time Machine compatible – which makes backing up all your memories and data easy! Time Machine keeps hourly backups for the past 24 hours, daily backups for the past month, and weekly backups for all previous months. Setup takes just a few seconds, after which it will backup automatically every time it’s connected to your Mac.

There are two main types of storage drives – Hard Disk Drives (HDD) and Solid State Drives (SSD). HDDs are the most common types of storage drives, although SSDs are quickly becoming more popular and cost effective. HDDs work using moving parts and operate similarly to a record player, using a needle to access data on a rotating disc. Each HDD has a rotations-per-minute speed (RPM). The greater the RPM, the faster the drive.

Recently we’ve seen Apple computers make a move to the USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 connection port. Being smaller in size than traditional USB ports, they allow hard drives to be even thinner, lighter and more portable than ever, as well as providing a faster connection. But it’s not just Apple – many PC and cell phone companies are making the move to the more universal USB-C type port.

Thankfully, G-Tech are sure to offer a drive that supports your machine, making hard drives that support USB 2.0; USB 3.0; Thunderbolt 2; Thunderbolt 3 as well as FireWire and eSATA. The USB-C/Thunderbolt 3, found in their higher end models, delivers more speed, pixels and power than ever before.

Durability, Reliability, and Warranty
Durability and Reliability is a very important factor when choosing an external hard drive. All G-TECH HDs comes with a at least a 3 year warranty. Our most durable drive is the G-DRIVE ev ATC. The G-DRIVE ev ATC is a rugged, all terrain drive. It is dust resistant, water protected, series compatible, pressure resistant, and has a 2-meter drop protection. The G-DRIVE ev RAW is the next highest durable drive that’s designed for everywhere you go. This rugged drive supports a 1.5-meter drop protection, making it durable and reliable for on-the-go access. G-TECH have one of the lowest fail rates across all HD manufacturers.

Now that you’re all read-up on all things hard drive, why not check out our collection of G-Tech’s latest and greatest right here.

Under the Simply Spotlight – Episode 6 Student Edition

Welcome to the student edition of Under the Simply Spotlight, where we spoke to one of our student staff members for their insights into working at Simply. Each month we put one of our staff under the spotlight so that you can get to know the people who provide our outstanding service. For this edition, we spoke to Jordan Bornais, from our Kamloops store. So read on for a short interview that gives a flavour of who we are.

Where do you go to school and what are you studying?
I am from Calgary and moved to Kamloops when I was only one and lived there ever since then.

What’s your current position at Simply Computing?
I go to Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops and I am working towards my Bachelors of Physics.

Do you have any vacations planed before going back to college?
Its technically a vacation but nothing extravagant, but I will be visiting Vancouver Island and Victoria again this year with my girlfriend for a week!

What’s your current position at Simply Computing?
I am currently a Sales Representative and a One-on-One Trainer at my store in Kamloops.

What was your job before working at Simply Computing?
I was actually working in the Electronics Department at Target for about a year before they all closed down.

If you could own any product in store right now, what would it be?
I know that it isn’t out yet but I would very very much like to own the new iMac Pro coming out soon, it’s due out in December and the Space Grey accessories are a very nice touch.

What’s your favourite thing about working with Simply?
My favourite thing about working at Simply would most likely be the atmosphere. It is extremely high paced and you’re always on your feet and trying to solve unique problems. Its also extremely rewarding helping someone find something they never thought possible.

What music are you into right now? How do you listen to it?
If it has a beat, then I like it. There are very few genres that I don’t have saved on my iPhone. I will normally listen to my music either through my MacBook Pro speakers, or through BeatsX or AirPods.

If you could eat just 1 type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
It would have to be burritos, you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner in one nicely wrapped surprise!

What advice would you give to a fellow student in the market for a new computer/iPad?
There are two pieces of advice I could give, the first being that it’s never too early to think about what you could be doing in the future and picking a computer or iPad that will help you most in the situation, but at the same time you do not need always need the top of line equipment to be able to succeed in school.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
As of late, a great deal of my spare time has been spent at the gym! If not there I would be playing basketball or just hanging out somewhere with friends.

What do you hope to work as once you’ve finished college?
After I have finished, there are a great number of places I would hope to work for, but at the end of it all I really hope to have a business of my own.

Thanks to Jordan for taking part in our Student Edition of Under the Simply Spotlight. Just one of our experienced and dedicated staff who are ready to help with all your Apple needs. For directions to our Kamloops store click here.
