Online Retribution: PlumChoice Offers Free PC Services until 2010 for Nation's Most Frustrated Consumer Tech User

Blog Contest Launched to Give Consumers a Chance to Vent and Win

BILLERICA, Mass., August 1, 2007 For anyone who has experienced pain and suffering at the hands of their personal technology, PlumChoice (, the nation's leader in remote tech help, is offering a chance for retribution. From now until Halloween 2007, the company is soliciting consumer "horror stories" on its blog in search of the most frustrating, tear-your-hair-out technology experience, and the winner will receive top-quality technology help free for the remainder of the decade(1).

"The great thing about remote services is that it is hands-down the fastest, easiest and most convenient way to get technology help, and that's the way we think all your technology experiences should be," said Ted Werth, CEO of PlumChoice. "Technology should help you save and enjoy your time more, not cause you to waste it figuring out how something works or what's gone wrong.

"This contest is really about giving people a place to vent their frustrations and befuddlements, and perhaps in the process, show the industry where some of the gaps lie between the technology and the people it's meant to serve."

To enter a true life story, consumers should click on the "Whine & Win" link and post their story directly to the blog. The contest will close at midnight on October 30, 2007, with the winner being contacted as well as announced on the blog October 31st (Halloween). The winner will receive the PlumChoice Unlimited Online PC Support subscription plan (valued at $24.95/month) completely free of charge until December 31, 2009. PlumChoice employees and their relatives are ineligible for this contest.

The nation's trusted leader in remote PC & technology support, PlumChoice provides highly effective and convenient help 24/7 by accessing consumers' computers through a high-speed Internet connection to view, configure, demonstrate and repair everything from laptops to wireless networks, digital cameras, and MP3 players. The winner of the nation's most frustrated consumer technology user contest will be given access to PlumChoice's full line of service offerings.
