Men have an extraordinary distaste for asking for help.
It gets us lost. Gives others headaches. Causes us to fly a drone into the South Branch of the Chicago River, which absolutely never happened to anyone writing this.
And yet, probably thanks to some troglodytic instinct for self-sufficiency, we carry on doing it.
There’s a better way: Enjoy, the tech concierge that allows you to shop from an inventory of must-have gadgets, then taps a roster of experts to hand-deliver them and give you the proper 101.
EnjoyIt’s basically a Genius Bar that comes to you1:12
If Enjoy sounds a lot like Apple’s Genius Bar, it’s because it basically is. The startup was founded by Ron Johnson, the former Apple retail chief who led the strategy for Apple’s brick-and-mortars.
Same concept, wider reach.
Also very simple: you shop online and select a window for delivery, which can be as fast as four hours. An expert arrives, hand-delivers your gadget and makes sure you’re up and running. Best part? The service is entirely free.
It’s convenient. Fast. Also makes a great gift for anyone tech-deficient and willing.
That’s why we asked the tech gurus at Enjoy for their five must-have gadgets of the season. Don’t be afraid to ask for a helping hand.
