An Apple a Day

I love Apple computers. For the life of me, I cannot fathom being a PC user. I bought my first Apple Macintosh when I was fresh out of college in the mid-80's. Amazingly, it cost me nearly the same as a brand new G5 Power Mac does today.

I'm sure there are a lot of great things about being a PC user, but there's just so many cool things that a Mac does better. Most recently, the geniuses at Apple have created a suite of programs called I-Life 2006. These are applications that integrate working with photos, movies, music and webcasting. It's intutive, easy to learn and the results are stunning. As a creative dude, I must tell you that I have to drag myself away from the computer to eat. Yeah, these programs are that cool!

For anyone who is afraid of taking the plunge into the Apple world, know that the latest Macs are being manufactured to run Windows, too. That's right, you can now get all the stunning, unbelievable things that are native to the Apple environment and still have access to all of your favorite app's in Windows.

One concern...I hope this doesn't mean that we'll be visited by all of the viruses that plague the PC world! If you didn't know it, we Mac folks have been virtually untouched by the viruses that infect PCs. I imagine that this is a horrible thing to have to deal with and I hope we remain "disease-free". Are vitamin C tablets available for computers?
