New Solution for the Technically Un-Savvy


(VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, May 7, 2007) -- Responding to a growing need for help with using and enjoying electronic gadgets, technology expert Bill Jensen announced today the launch of Meerkats, a new in-home help service for personal computer fixes, home theater installations and integration of home electronics.

A former sales and service technician at a leading computer store and camera shop in Victoria, Bill Jensen saw first hand all the state-of-the-art electronics piling up in today’s homes. “The digital age has brought many wonderful advantages in the use of computers, televison viewing, music and photography,” says Jensen, now head technician at Meerkats. “Some people are comfortable with using and integrating new technologies. For others, it can be overwhelming. When the inevitable problem arises, you’ll now have someone to call for help. Our mission at Meerkats is to provide a one-stop offering to help people solve problems and optimize their experience with the electronic devices they use every day.”

Meerkats technicians are trained to install, repair or optimize personal computers, home theatre systems, mp3 players, digital cameras, media centres, PDAs and smartphones.

“We chose the name Meerkats when we heard the moto of these quirky African mammals: Loyal to the family, related or adopted. We felt it evokes the kind of qualities we intend our technicians to provide: helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and reliable”, explained Jensen.

The Meerkats toll free phone line, 1 888 391 K A T S, has already been activated. The Web site,, will soon offer online help and a range of technology products, hand picked by Jensen for their top reviews and performance. “We aim to pre-select the best choices and most reasonably priced options in home electronics, and make them available for ordering online. That way, busy consumers who don’t have the time or the interest to research dozens of products, have a simple, easy solution, delivered to their door, and installed for them. Plus we will ensure you know how to use it.”
