Steve Jobs – what a visionary, brilliant inventor, and industry changer.

I Got A New Computer

I have not posted anything recently.  Life has been super crazy busy with work and friends and family in town visiting.  In addition, I just bought a new computer!  Which is great!

I will have to post more about the computer later – but for now, just know that it is a 13″ MacBook Pro.  I bit the bullet.  I paid more.  I “made the switch”.  We shall see what I think, but so far I like it a lot. I will try to post more about this at some point once life slows down (haha).

Also of note: I bought the computer at MicroCenter.  Highly recommended.

Behind Again & My Computer

It has been a week since I last posted something on here.  Life just seems to be crazy busy.  Summer should not be so intense.  I like my internship a lot, but working all day really limits my ability to do anything else with my time.  I always feel behind and like I do not have enough time to see my friends or sleep.  I did visit camp this weekend, which was enjoyable – more on that in a future post (I do not have time to write it right now).  I miss S-F a lot – it is a fantastic place.

Hopefully, I will have a chance to start posting regularly again.  My blog is getting hits from random websites though, which I kind of enjoy.

I have been having computer problems for quite sometime.  Tomorrow, my plan is to take my (almost) four year old laptop in to be shipped off to be “fixed” under my four year (!) warranty.  I like this computer a lot, but I have had so many problems with it and so many headaches from it that it is almost unbelievable.  I am hoping to buy a new laptop this summer.  I am trying to convince myself to buy a MacBook Pro because so many of my friends have said good things, but they cost so much… Let me know what you think…

Apple Guide

The first computer I had was a Macintosh LC that we got from my aunt.  That was an exciting computer back then.  Apple has changed a lot.  I do not currently own any Apple products other than my iPod, although I am often told that it would be better if I did.

I am considering buying a new computer soon as my current computer is going to be four years old soon.  I’d love to get an Apple (if the rumors of better reliability and customer service are true) that could run Windows or my Windows-esque programs.  Unfortunately, the good Apple computers cost so much.

And I have yet to find a way to convince myself that the iPad could be useful to me.

If I did own more Apple products, the following would be useful (it is amusing either way):
