The Future is Meow

If you're having cat-astrophes of your own, it might be time for a tech refresh!

By now, you may have seen one of the most purr-fect viral videos to make its way across the internet. A Texas lawyer got stuck in cat filter limbo on an important video conference. While we can’t be sure what transpired, we heard he may have been using an older Dell PC and he was long overdue for a software upgrade. If our suspicions are correct, an outdated driver could have been part of the issue aside from good old-fashioned user error.

We can all appreciate the unexpected scenarios we  sometimes find ourselves in while working remote. And we appreciate cat moments like this which brighten our day and break up the routine. And don’t worry – we got Mr. Ponton and his office new Latitude 9510s, so they now have the latest and greatest tech.

If you ever find yourself in a similar situation, the first step is to update your software. If you’re in the market for a tech refresh, we’re offering a special discount on our laptops starting this Friday using the code “FUTUREISMEOW.” And don’t forget, we can help you recycle your old computers here.

Thank you, Mr. Ponton, for the laughs. We’re not kitten around with those software upgrades!
