Dotto’s Data Café
Where technology is a friendly thing!
This entertaining and educational program is the television equivalent of “computers for dummies.” Dotto’s Data Café explores the ins and outs of both MAC/PC computers, from hardware systems, to software applications, as well as peripherals and support equipment, this technology series has it all, from A to Z.
Dotto’s Data Café features up-to-date news, views, tricks and tips, all designed to showcase and explain the very latest technology. Modeled after a trendy cappuccino bar, the Café is a friendly coffee shop where the topic is computers – how to choose them and use them, how to surf the Internet, work more efficiently, and just have fun. A big hit with Canadian audiences, Dotto’s Date Café has helped millions of computer users learn, upgrade and enhance their cyber skills on everything from modem basics, printers, software and the Internet.
“The viewers really appreciate the fact that we talk to them, and not down to them, or over the heads,” says Steve Dotto, host and co-executive producer of Dotto’s Data Café. “Computers shouldn’t be intimidating or difficult, and we encourage people to get as much as possible out of their computers – both at work and at home.”
Launched in early 1996, Dotto’s Café grew out of a need to help the public decipher all the rapid changes that were taking lace in the computer industry. Today the Café remains true to its roots, a how-to program that teaches people how to use technology. It’s ability to satisfy an ever-growing public demand for information and advice has helped to turn Dotto’s Data Café into the educational treasure it is today.
