Well this ought to make things interesting!
This is CarbonJohn
the new, mild mannered, daytime, "analogue", alter-ego of ehMax.
the heck is this all about you ask?
Well, as the owner of ehMac, I've always tried to keep my online "digital"
persona as ehMax separate from my private, "analogue" daytime life as John.
My daytime job for the past 9 years has been working in the Mac biz. First
working as an Apple Service Technician, then later as an Apple sales
consultant for an Authorized Apple Reseller.
With recent developments
, I was put in the situation of finding a new place of
employment... not necessarily for the reasons hinted at in the article.
An extremely exciting opportunity came knocking at my door, and I'm thrilled
to announce that Carbon Computing
will be opening a full Authorized Apple Dealership in
Kitchener, Ontario! Carbon Computing KW will be located at 445 King St. W. in Kitchener
right at the corner of King and Victoria in the heart of Kitchener. (For those of you taking an early
drive by for a quick peek, remember please that we are undergoing renovations.)
Please email me
with your contact info if you wish to be placed on our grand opening invite.
In a few weeks, we'll be opening temporary corporate offices in Kitchener at
30 Duke Street while we prepare the new location to open either late May or
early June. I'm already helping lots of Mac users in the KW area with purchases, so if
you're from the KW area and you have some Mac based needs today, give me a shout!
I hope this will be really exciting news for Mac users and Mac based
businesses in the Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph and surrounding
regions! Things I'm particularly excited about are having a showroom with
Apple product on display, and having them in stock,
ready to take home! We'll also be able to leverage the many resources from
our main Toronto location.
Also exciting, will be having a highly visible, central, easy to find and park
location not only for existing Mac users, but also for the many potential
new Mac users and businesses in the region may not know of an Apple
dealership available to them.
Other things we are looking at include having more Pro Audio and Video
solutions available to the region, as well as Print & Graphics products and
solutions from Adobe, Xerox, and GretagMacbeth etc... to enterprise Xserve
Server and storage solutions. We will also be selling used systems and
taking trade-ins on used systems making is easy for users to upgrade.
It will be a dream-come-true having the proper resources in place to help
service the many great Mac users and Mac based businesses in the KW area (And
future Mac users and Mac based businesses!)
So with my direct involvement with ehMac and Carbon Computing as the
exclusive Authorized Reseller sponsor on ehMac, I thought it'd be best, in
the interest of full disclosure, to "come out of the closet" so to speak.
I thought coming up with the separate identity of CarbonJohn
related postings separate from my ehMax
identity for ehMac specific postings
will be a fun way to keep things separate.
If you know any Mac users in the KW region, please feel free to let them know
Carbon KW is coming to town! I'd really appreciate you all spreading the word
as much as you can!
And, if you're in the Kitchener-Waterloo region and you have any current Mac
based computing needs, give me a shout!
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to PM or email me, or use
your discretion to post publicly.
