Steve Jobs on Flash

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice. Flash is a successful business for Adobe, and we can understand why they want to push it beyond PCs. But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short.

From Steve Jobs’ – Thoughts on Flash

That pretty much sums it up right there!

iMac – My second Apple product

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

A month or so ago, I bought my first Apple product – a 8G iPod Touch – and I just love it.

I’ve also been looking at Macs for quite some time. I’ve always wanted one. Yes… I know they are expensive but when you think of all the time you can spend “repairing” a PC with Windows on it, swearing at it, cursing it for the stupid OS that it is sometimes well… to me the price out-weight the troubles that PC sends my way. It’s an opinion and I do not want to get into a PC vs Mac debate.

So… we were on vacation the last 2 weeks and we stopped by Future Shop to have look at them. I really wanted to get one for my birthday. I think I was in there looking at them for 2 hours. Trying to decide if I wanted a MacBook Pro or an iMac. Then, once I decided on the iMac, do I want/need the 24inch screen?

Needless to say, I wasn’t leaving that store without a nice iMac box :D

After much debating, I finally went with the 20inch, 2.66Ghz Intel Core Duo 2 processor, 2GB of 800Mhz DDR2 SDRAM, 320GB Serial ATA hard drive.

It’s been 2 weeks now since I’ve plugged it in and started playing with it and all I can say is WOW! I love it!

My first Apple product

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

After months of looking at them online, I finally had an excuse to buy myself one. It was my husbands’ birthday yesterday. After supper, we went to Future Shop and I told him that I was planning and getting him an iPod Touch. He was tentative at first since he didn’t really know what they were/did apart from playing iTunes and MP3s. When I started describing all the cool little things you could do well … there was a spark in his eyes :p

So now we both have one. It’s an 8GB iPod Touch which is plenty for us.
