First of all, I am personally responsible for the sale of 2 MacBooks this week. One to my aunt and one to my mother-in-law. I do believe they will both like them a lot. Second of all, after Kathy (Aunt) spent several hours talking to the tech support guys last night, only to not have her iPod issues fixed, I was able to resolve the issue in a matter of seconds. That’s just wrong. I had heard Apple support was good, but being the guy that can baffle most any tech support crew, I doubt I will ever call them. Kathy was all in a tither about her podcasts and it took us all of about 5 minutes to get her sorted out.
Along the way, we did use iChat and did a video conference which was cool! Then I just asked to share her desktop, was able to take control and fix stuff. No tweaking modems, no sending emails, no hoops, joops or poops… just work. It is nice to not have to work on computers, just use the computers to make life better and stuff.
Macs that are 1 degree of separation from me (or less): Mine, Sarah’s, Gray’s, Kari’s, Alison’s, Kathy’s… maybe YOU are next! If you are bored, go to youtube and search on Mac v. PC. There are some really funny commercials on there!

We’re all converted. I have a MacBook Pro, wife has a MacBook, son has wife’s old iBook, mom has a MacBook, sister has a 23″ G5 iMac, brotherinlaw has a 12″ G4 PowerBook, brother (the software engineer in the family) has a 15″ PowerBook, a 15″ MacBook Pro, and a 17″ G5 iMac. Whew, that’s a lot of Macs.
I fully agree – I like to use my computer to DO things, not use my computer to make my computer work.
They. Just. Work.
