We love what we do. We love using technology like smartphones and computers and showing other people how to use them too. It’s important for us to know that we’re reaching people, opening their eyes to results they didn’t think possible and easing the frustration of learning. Nothing is more important to us than hearing comments like these:


I really love your “What does this button do” shows. I especially like that they are on YouTube. I sit in my LazyBoy, turn on my 60″ SmartTV, and watch. Also have played some more than once. Just watched the one re: blue tooth and the one on Data usage. Nice to be able to [Click for the rest …]

From a comment left on Gail West’s member spotlight:

Gail West is one of the three best teachers I ever had in a long career of getting educated and becoming an educator myself. She knows good teaching when she sees it and has been enthusiastic about Geeks on Tour from the outset until now. Even I, a non-techie, became a member as a result of her unflagging praise for the Gulds and their website.


Chris and Jim, we had such a great time on Sunday at the Central Florida Computer Society and Central Florida Genealogical Society meeting. So many of us were interested in the Google Photos and how to organize them. I cannot speak for all, but I went home and played with that most of the evening. Again, a wonderful day of learning. Thanks so much


From our forum where we answered his question about “Where are my Google Photos Filed?”

Fantastic!!! Both suggestions are perfect. “From Your Phone” is really easy, but I like downloading the keepers too. Thanks so much. My membership is a bargain! Steve


Your instructions are wonderful. It is an easy way to get acquainted with how to do things on your computer. If you are a loner it takes the place of having a youngster for help.
THANKS. Doug


 

Thanks very much for all the information, tutorials, etc. that you offer. Yes, I am learning a lot but still have a lot to learn! The videos are so helpful. The nice thing is that I can go and look at them over and over and over…..if needed. Happy travels and thanks again for helping take some of the “confusion” out of working on the “confuser” (computer) with pictures.   Marti

 

Thanks so much. I was having trouble getting pictures from my new iPhone to my blog. So I went to your forum on posting pictures to a blog and got my answer. I am thrilled that this works! Thank you so much! This is going to make my life so much easier.  Connie


 From an email received after presenting a Picasa seminar remotely using Skype: Thank you for the great presentation Sunday. I think it is safe to  say that it was one of the best, if not best, webinar yet. What really impressed me was the way the two of you worked in sync without stepping on each other.  We all learned a lot, and while I use Lightroom, I was impressed with Picasa. I will not be changing , but I now know that I can recommend Picasa for image management and simple editing.

John Waller, VP for Programs SLOBytes  (Computer Club in San Luis Obispo, CA)


I have learned SO MUCH from your videos on MS streets and trips. I used the program last year, learning on my own. This month I have watched many of your videos and am busy planning our trips this year. You are a great teacher. Thank you.


Nice video on the bar code issues (Android App for Barcode Scanning.) I love your videos on all the topics and the simplicity of them. No crazy “propeller head” jargon, just very easy to understand approach. I have recommended Geeks on Tour and will continue to do so. Best 60.00 I have spent in long time

Kind regards…Jim Gawluk


I just wanted to congratulate you both for your informative and interesting tutorials, websites and newsletters. Your ability to present complex topics in easy to understand ways is a rare talent in this industry. Having both taken and given lectures on similar subjects at several colleges, I appreciate your results and wanted to compliment you.  Tony


I want to thank both of you for your outstanding presentation to the Valencia Lakes Computer & Technology Club. Your material was organized and presented in a very professional manner. The content was all relevant and offered in a fashion that was understandable to all. As I mentioned to you after the meeting, several people came up to me to tell me that it was the best presentation of the year. Congratulations on an outstanding job.

Stu Silverman, President
Valencia Lakes Computer and Technology Club


Just viewed this series of videos on Facebook. Wow! How I wish I had viewed these a long time ago. I can now see how much I’ve been missing and why it is such a popular tool. Thanks again for your excellent quality!


Wow! You have given me so many videos to use at our computer club. I live in Mesa Arizona in a 55+ Community. We have our own computer lab. We keep three computers hooked to our projector – WindowsXP – Vista – 7. We also are very fortunate to have WiFi in the Lab. I just want to tahnk you so much for your wonderful presentations. I will spend many hours just viewing and reviewing your many lessons. This is the best I have ever seen. Do you ever come to Arizona? I would love to have you give a presentation to our club. Thanks so much.


I  attended eight geeksontour.com seminars.  All of our pics are now organized and backed up on Clickfree, our Western Digital external hard drive and on DVD.  Our grandkids now think we’re Facebook literate.  Streets & Trips, Google Earth and a blog-who would have thought it?  Chris and Jim Guld are so good at what they do.  Chris must be a great teacher, because I haven’t had many questions.
From the new blog: SeeingTheUSA.com


How do you do it? You are awesome! Almost every thing I am using, you have a video for it! Picasa videos were great; using the Droid to tether to the computer answered a lot of my questions; and now, Facebook – I just signed up recently and didn’t have a clue. Thank-you soooooo much!  Lynda


This (Picasa video on Using the Folder Manager) is the absolute best explanation on how to work/import into Picasa, which is a God send as I was going bananas with Picasa’s explantions Thank You Geeks I have now booked marked you 10 times (just kidding once is enough) Dave

My husband and I are absolutely amazed!  We never thought we could put a cute story together with narration, music, the works!

Also, to know that you are available for questions is great.

I have never seen such an easy and fun way to learn.  I can’t thank you enough.

I have spent money for chat technical questions, etc and found it to be a waste.  I was actually glad to pay $39 for this service. Now have to make another movie as a belated Christmas gift that we have been working on.

Wish you both all the best, Kathy


I used your link, and registered. 2 minutes later I have printed a hard copy of what looks like a very informative manual on a great program. For 10 bucks, including the S/W (free, courtesy of Google, as you know) I think that is the Internet bargain of the century. Thanks for being a big part of it. I plan on joining your tutorial club, looks like you have really done your homework, so we, as users, do not have to. Sincerely, Mike C


Well I finally joined, after about a year of lurking and following your blog. Today’s article about the Garmin Nuvi 255W and Streets and Trips 2010 is what convinced me. … After watching your video, now I have to rush out and buy S&T 2010 because we are driving to South Padre Island this winter and I want to get busy and plan my route and then transfer it all to the NUVI. Thanks so much for creating this tutorial. Now if I could just get you to start creating tutorials for Windows Live Photo Gallery, my life would be complete LOL… Thanks. Bill


Loved your seminars on Picasa and on blogs. Did some work on my Picasa pictures after the seminar and solved some questions I had. After the seminar on blogs I went on and created a new blog (couldn’t remember the address of the first one I created. Here is the address: http://travelingwiththestampers.blogspot.com/ ; Marynelle


Chris and Jim,
I was privileged to attend your seminars in 2006 and again this year at the Perry, Georgia FMCA rally. FYI–your seminars are THE BEST!!!:-) You are indeed both great communicators and your presentations are exceptionally interesting as well as informative and educational for the beginner as well as the more advanced user. Thanks for your outstanding contribution to all of us seeking help in expanding our computer hardware/software knowledge and education. Bless you! Sandra


I am so enthused by your videos that I have put a link to Geeks on Tour on my blog, knowing that many in my family or among my friends would like to blog but have no idea how to. My blog is boondockingblogger.blogspot.com Thanks! Ghislaine


I just finished your tutorial on adding a live map to your blog. it was so much more heplful than anything I’ve viewed. Thanks. I have a two column blog spot blog like the one you used in the map tutorial RV having fun one. Julie


Chris- Just joined and have reviewed all of your Picasa tutorials. You are the best!! You don’t go too fast and your explanations are perfect. And you have a lovely speaking voice. You have no competition. I HAVE PASSED THE NAME OF YOUR SITE ON TO MY FRIENDS. Still have not fully perused the site. John


I got your Picasa3 cdrom in the mail yesterday. The content is great! I also like the simple, straightforward user interface (video choices on the left column). Well worth the price. My parents have been emailing 8 MB .bmp attachments for nearly 10 years. With Picasa and your videos to guide them, my parents will have access to a whole new world in digital pictures. Also, no more 8 MB .bmp attachments will be nice for everybody. Thanks for making this available, and available at a reasonable price. Scott


Thanks for your help so far with Picasa, it is only one of the reasons we joined. You both do a great job of explaining computer-ese. I found your explanations easy to follow and at my level – that sometimes is very hard to do for those who understand and know computers well. Your tutorial screens are very understandable, I usually get it the first time around and actually remembered many items from the seminar in St. Paul. You’ll be hearing from me a lot in the future. Thanks again. Nancy


April 30, 2009 Your seminars at The Rally 2009 rate up there with our hot air ballon ride as the high points of the week! Harold and Roberta


Thank you, I have already enjoyed the Picasa videos, in fact I was up 2.00am today and loved it, so many things I have not been able to pick up easily, Thanks again Della


Thanks, Chris. I’ve learned more from you guys in two months than many, many books have taught me in two years!!! Howard


April 18, 2009 Had to thank you two for your great instruction at The Rally.I learned so much!I have my own blog now and even posted several photos via a Picasa web album that I made.(I never dreamed I’d be smart enough to actually have a blog!!!) from her blog: http://roadtrip247.blogspot.com/ Thank you, Geeks On Tour for teaching me how to blog. (And in only an hour and a half! Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?) Now I can begin writing about our RV travels and our beautiful granddaughters – Lucie and Sylvia – will be able to read about us whenever they want to. Connie C


April 23, 2009 You two did a superb job on the presentations at “The Rally”.Keep up the good work on “real world” applications for “real world” people. Joseph G


March 31, 2009 Jim and Chris: We attended 4 of your seminars at Perry and were so impressed that I posted your welcome letter on our clubs web site. Thanks again for all we learned. John and Carroll


I just finished your tutorial on adding a live map to your blog. It was so much more heplful than anyone I’ve viewed. thanks. I have a two column blog spot blog like the one you used in the map tutorial RV having fun one. Julie


From an attendee of our Blog seminar at the FMCA convention, and member:

I am proud to announce that a blog was born today. (as if we needed another one). If you are interested in taking a look at it, the web address is: http://gailwanderingwest.blogspot.com … I have already edited that first post by adding a map of my itinerary. I am excited! Thanks for all of your help and good instruction. Gail


3/11/2009 Many thanks to Geeks on Tour: With the help of your tutorials, I finally got the gumption to start my blog. It’s titled, not so originally, boondockingblogger. Since I boondock and stay a few months in place, I wanted to avoid giving the impression that I’m constantly on the road. Been there, done that. It will be incorporated later as a travelogue. Now, a couple weeks short of 70, and traveling alone, I’m less fond of adventure. Still, family and friends wanted to hear of my past adventures and find out where I’m at, so a blog was ideal. It’s a work in progress and I enjoy it immensely. Again, many thanks. Ghislaine, aka Stargazer

 


 

Hi Jim & Chris (and Odie), Just got my membership and must thank you for your wonderful videos. They are so easy to follow that I decided to get my own blogs (one in English, the other in French) following your instructions. … Before leaving Alberta, I had planned on having a website as a way to make new contacts and keep in touch. Problem is that I had NO IDEA how to design and organize one. Thanks to your clear instructions, I am no longer intimidated by the task. Thank you so very much. Gigi

 


 

Aloha! I don’t know which I am more excited about….Picasa 3 or your awesome tips. Your teaching method is clear and easy to understand, and being able to see it in action makes all the difference in the world. Text books can be tough to learn from.We live on the Big Island of Hawaii and don’t suppose you’ll be driving this way anytime soon, but let us know if you do. Patti


Thanks for the tip; Wonderful. It’s amazing what can be done when you know the right buttons to push. Hope to meet you in person some day. You are such a big help. Greatly appreciated.

I got off to a very late start in life trying to use a PC. The last Tutorials I bought from you on CD, taught me to do simple things, such as CUT, COPY, PASTE, or post Links. I have also gotten a lot of very useful information from your website. And I can hardly wait to look forward to each new e-mail. I am still interested in becoming a Member in order to watch all your tutorials online. Dan and Jill


12/8/08 I joined because of computer problems my friends were unable to help me with. (Solved the problem, once I could view the needed video) THANKS! I really appreciate having a site, full of such advanced computer information. I know I will have questions in the future and now have a place where help is available right from my easy chair. Thanks for keeping in touch. Enjoy the Florida sunshine; it is snowing here this morning. (can’t believe you are from Alaska) Love that part of your country. Art


Nancy and I with your online tutorial assistance have put our first blog together. We would like to share it with you and get your feedback and any additional suggestions.

  1. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
    issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and
    I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

  2. C’est dս plaisir de regarder votre blog

  3. I every time emailed this web site post page to all my associates, since if like to read it
    then my contacts will too.

    We are currently attending your TechnoGeek Learning Rally in Bushnell, FL at the Paradise Oaks RV Resort. The accomodations are great, the breakfasts are great, the teaching methods you guys use are perfect for “older folks” who are computer challenged and the learning videos on your web site is the best support for us after the rally. So, all in all, your methods are just perfect for us and we will not hesitate to recommend “Geeks On Tour/TechnoRV” rallies to anyone we meet when we travel this great country of ours.
    Stay safe and keep us “old folks” updated on the latest as we don’t have the grandchildren with us to show us and we have to at least keep up with the young ones 🙂
    The programs you have shown us will keep our travels and our memories alive for all of our families for years to come. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts…
    Byron & Linda Landry
