A friend told me he had dropped his notebook PC, and it was going to cost more to repair than it was worth. I advised: Get a Mac. I started looking around for some information for him. Why would the Mac benefit his Computer Science course? Why would the Mac be more reliable? What does he need to know about compatibility? One of the articles I read was a blog post by The Shepherd’s Sons called “All Signs Point To Apple”.
I am currently watching the Macworld 2008 Keynote speech, and Steve Jobs – though starting off a bit slow – wowed the gadget hungry crowd in his usual fashion. Besides some new Apple TV innovations (limited to the US – bah!), iPhone/iPod updates and the new Timecapsule; the key component of the speech was the introduction of the new Macbook Air. Although I run my servers on OpenBSD, I write my blog from my Mac and prefer my Powerbook over all the other computers I use.
