I Heart Apple

For the record: I heart my new computer. I think Steve Jobs just became my new Geek Crush. Yes, even over Alton Brown. Anybody who can pioneer a company that makes such easy to use and beautiful and bug-free computer products deserves to replace Alton. Plus, it used to take me over 50 minutes to upload a CD. I have uploaded about 30 today. The only flaw in the Down With PCs Conversion resulted from operator error. When I tried to switch over my iTunes from my PC to this lovely machine, I somehow missed a crucial step and deleted all my uploaded music. The stuff I had purchased from iTunes was still there, thank God. (Though I about had a heart attack before I realized that) But the Great CD Uploading Project of 2005-2006 was all gone. The Re-Uploading Project of 2007 is going to last me this weekend. That’s it. It’s a Mac Miracle. And since that was the only big conversion casualty, I think I did pretty well.

Granted, there are some things I don’t like. For example, I am used to having a right click and left click option on my mouse. Not being able to spell check with the left click thing is kind of annoying. I have to figure out and relearn all those shortcuts. And there are a few other word processing things I don’t like. Like no thesaurus. How am I supposed to sound fancy without one? I won’t know to use words like farfandoodle. Oh, and the fact that I can’t alphabetize my picture folders automatically really sucks. I stink at ABC order and that took me forever to do manually, but of course I had to do it because I am A-type to the nth million degree. The bonus is I know there are lots of fun things on here I don’t know how to use and will be discovering in the next few months. The joys!

Oh, and let me just say, Stickies Rock!

    Kate, you should give me a call, because you are doing a few things the hard way.
