Sure, we've heard of the iCloud--Apple's elusive hard drive in the sky that wirelessly syncs our iPhone, MacBook and iPad--but what we don't know is how to use it. Making an appointment and then waiting in line at the Genius Bar for help leaves us feeling nothing but dark skies looming overhead, but luckily, two in-home tech-service companies are here to clear our clouded vision.
Ivan Expert This team of veritable Mac pros has been working with Apple products for more than ten years, so you can be certain they know their stuff. In non-geek speak, the consultants will meet with you individually (including evenings and weekends, in all boroughs) to help you with everything iCloud has to offer, from syncing your contacts, calendars and photos to preventing data loss from a coffee spill on your keyboard ($180 per hour).

The Tech Guy Mike Beeferman is a jack-of-all-IT-trades. While the iCloud technology is exclusive to Macs, he'll show you how to use similar backup systems on your PC or Android device. With more than 15 years of experience, he can help you with basic desktop needs like migrating files or bigger things such as home-theater integration, plus he'll travel anywhere in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens ($100 per hour).
