Northwoods Computer Guy is your Antigo answer for all things to do with your computer. He has fixed a paper jam for me. He has helped me pick out new products. He tuned up my old beast of a machine. He did all this quickly, in a super professional and friendly manner, and within my budget. You can’t go wrong! Call Scott today if you have any computer needs. -Samantha Masterton

1981 – Video killed the radio star

August 1, 1981

  • I really do remember this day in history quite well, I remember waiting patiently for the channel to go live… MTV, presumably standing for “Music Television”, launches on cable TV.

As most people know, after the introduction sequence, the first video played was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles. However, a bit of trivia is that the second song played was “You Better Run” by Pat Benatar.

MTV had an immediate impact on the music industry and was an iconic symbol of the technology-driven 1980’s.  What was your favorite video?!?

Happy Birthday Atari 6/27/1972

Happy Birthday Atari 6/27/1972!! This iconic gaming company started off back in 1972 believe it or not! The very first video game released on the system was Pong!

MP3 is officially dead

In the 90s and early 2000s, MP3 was born to rule the music world! You probably still remember downloading MP3 files to build your music collection, and the first mix CDs with all your favs in one place burning up to 10 times as many of these onto audio discs than you could with traditional CD tracks. The development of Mpeg […]


WannaCry: Ransomware & How To Protect Yourself
