1 reason to switch
MacWorld (conference and expo) is this week. While I’m not a Mac evangelist or fanatic, when Steve Jobs makes an announcement, it’s often accompanied with awe and buzz. This Tuesday’s keynote should be no exception. I’m waiting for that news on when I can get my hands on one of those Macs with Intel inside.
The higher price, small single-digit market share, and software I already own on the PC, have kept me from switching. But there is 1 reason to switch: the (almost) instant on from sleep mode. I love how I can open up my wifey’s laptop and get online in 5 seconds or less. I haven’t timed it, but it’s so fast! And, with new Macs coming with Intel inside, maybe it’ll run both Mac OS and Windows too. The possibilities..
I had written a much longer entry, but my Firefox browser crashed when I was trying to copy an URL to link up a side note about how Apple ran a Switch ad campaign back in 2002, and fanned some fame flames towards Ellen Feiss. The other aside I want to mention is a new video game online rental called gamefly.com – a brilliant idea! Though I’m in the minority with not being a gamer, I love a great idea!
