With everything going on with the new Omaha Service Center opening, we haven’t had time to get our latest KFAB Compute This shows edited and posted on the Compute This page of the Schrock website until now.
Two KFAB shows are now available online free from commercial interruption.
We have two other shows in raw audio format that we need to edit. We should have those online this week.
Our KFAB shows are a little different from the shows we air on KFOR. On the KFAB show I do not have a co-host (Chris won’t get up at 5 on Sunday morning to drive to Omaha).
Also, because KFAB covers Lincoln and Omaha, we get callers from all over the state.
The format is a little different, but give it a listen. It has really been catching on in Omaha and I think you will enjoy it.

Things are coming along nicely for our Compute This! show that airs Sundays from 7-8 AM on 1110 KFAB.
Last week we had our first show and we were packed with great callers, interesting questions, and great information.
We got the online streaming bug resolved, so listeners should be able to listen online through the KFAB website or the iheart radio smartphone app.
Our show update page is alive and kicking on the KFAB website as well.
Take a look at this page to learn what we will be covering on the show this weekend. Of course, we will take calls and that can lead to all sorts of tangents, but you can get an idea of the thrust of the show there.
This week we will be giving away one $25 on each of our shows. Here is where you can listen and how you can win:
Saturday Show on KFOR:

Schrock Innovations has been a staple in Nebraska’s computer repair industry for over 11 years. Testimonials like the one to the left explain how Schrock attained that position and how seriously we take our reputation in the community.
During that time, our Lincoln Service Center has won eight Best of Lincoln awards and this year we were honored as Nebraska’s #1 Customer Service company (out of all Nebraska businesses) by the Nebraska Retail Federation.
Although many of our successes have come from our Lincoln operation, Schrock is no stranger to the Omaha Metro area.
In 2005 we won a Best of Omaha award and we are presently building a $750,000 Service Center at Village Point Mall on 168th and Burke (scheduled for a September opening).
All promotional stuff aside, there are no computer repair businesses like Schrock Innovations in Omaha.
Most computer repair shops are focused on making a quick dollar. They are very willing to help people with their problems, for a price.
At Schrock Innovations we choose a different path. We want to build a relationship with you and earn your trust. Then, when you really need us, you can feel comfortable picking up the phone and asking for help.
That is why we offer a free hour of labor coupon for new customers (just mention it when you call 934-9423), that is why we recycle old computers free of charge, and that is why I get up every Sunday morning to do this show.
Compute This! and Schrock Innovations exist to help you make your computer do what you want it to do.
I am the 100% owner of Schrock Innovations, so when you hear me on the radio you know you are talking to a person who is in our Service Centers every day. I take pride in the fact I know my customers by name and I expect nothing but the best from my staff of trained technicians.
I wanted to start this show a few weeks before we opened our doors for business because building relationships takes time.
All I am asking from you is to listen every Sunday from 7-8 AM.
I promise that you will learn things about your computer that are genuinely interesting and useful. This is not a computer show for techies. This is a show for real people who just want their technology to work.
With that aside, let’s cover one promotional item for the show.
Every person who calls the show Sunday at 558-1110 with a question or comment will receive a free $50 Schrock gift card.
Just call, ask a question, and get a free $50. It’s that easy.
Normally we give away one $25 gift card PER SHOW, so $50 per caller is a VERY rare opportunity. Don’t miss out!
Tune in August 1 from 7-8 AM to Compute This!

After a bit of a posting drought, we have started posting our Compute This shows again on the Schrock Innovations website for those who couldn’t listen live, or live outside of the local market.
I have heard rumors that KFOR may be posting our shows as podcasts as well. I will look into it, and get you a link so you can subscribe through iTunes is you would rather do that than download the .mp3 files individually.
September 12, 2009 Show:
During this show we launched a new sale called the Great XP Escape Sale.
There was an early Husker game this week, so the call volume was a little light, but we did have a few callers and they asked questions like:
- Should I buy a laptop or a desktop computer?
- Why does my music sound different when I burn it to disc?
September 19th 2009 Show
During this show we wrapped up the Great XP Escape sale, talked about which browsers are the most energy efficient, and took a few calls as well.
Our callers asked questions like:
- My DVD drive disappeared from My Computer. How can I get it back?
- How can I fix a broken VGA cable?
- Why did my auto-fill stop working in the Yahoo Toolbar?
Compute This airs every Saturday morning on KFOR 1240 in Lincoln, NE from 10-11 AM CST. You can listen live on the KFOR website and call in toll-free with your questions at 800-825-5865.

We also touched on Google’s fail that happened earlier in the week. Google’s search engine was down for several hours, leaving users unable to use the site. We […]

What is whaling and why does Steve Jobs care? On Compute This, we talked about the term “whaling.” Whaling is a term similar to phishing except that big names are targeted for maximum impact. Over the past month, several whaling attacks have taken place against wealthy executives and individuals. The reason for whaling these people […]
