My fan is driving me crazy

This is slightly dissapointing…  The right fan in my brand spanking new MacBook Pro is making noise.  It’s very low but very noticeable.  More so late at night when all is quiet and not even a mouse is stirring.  So I’m off the Apple store tonight.  Luckily there’s one right across the street of where I’ll be this afternoon.  Hopefuly they can do something about it and quick.

And in the mean time, hurry up, Time Machine.  Back this puppy up.

Waiting… Anticipating…

And I’m waiting…  And anticipating…

Sadly my new MacBook Pro won’t get here until middle of next week, exactly when I’ll be in Boston.

My 3rd Taproot project

A few days ago I received an email from another Account Director at Taproot asking if I would be interested in working on another project.  This is yet another advanced website project for Gift of Adoption.  Of course, I said yes.  Now waiting to talk to the Account Director about particulars of the project.

As a side note, this will be my first true (significant) web development undertaking using my Macbook.  Looking forward to discovering available tools and what I can do on this platform.  Hope I won’t be missing Microsoft Visual Studio and Visual Web Developer.

Me — a proud Mac user

What started as an idle curiousity question on November 17th if Apple ever has sales, thanks to Jim, responding with this Link to AppleInsider, ended as a trip to my local BestBuy store.  Long story short, I walked out of the store carrying an all too sexy little box labeled Macbook.  It’s been 2 weeks now and not once did I regret my decision.  Not only this 13.3″ laptop looks awfully terribly cool, it also works well.   In fact, it works so well and so intuitive, that at times, when turning back to a Windows machine, I find myself at a loss. (Why 2 fingers on the touch pad don’t scroll the page?)

I can go on and on about all the cool things about a Mac: from ease of use to all the out of the box features.  But I won’t.  Enough of that is said out there anyway.  The only thing I’ll say is that I miss the availability of open source and free software for Windows.  There is a ton of software out there for Mac, but, more often than not, you have to buy it.

And lastly, I don’t like that same applications that exist on Windows and Mac are often implemented just ever so slightly different on a Mac.  But I quickly forget about it every time I open the cover of my sleeping laptop and… Boom!…  it is on just like that and connected to my wireless network — no waiting!  Love it

Does Apple ever have sales?

Does Apple ever have sales or do I have to shell out $1750 for a Macbook?

I am in love with the new Macbook.  It is so gorgeous.  I have never felt this way about any piece of equipment, let alone about a Mac.  But this feels like true love, a love from first sight.  The moment I saw it on my coworker’s desk, I knew this was it — this could be THE Mac that makes me take the plunge and join the other side.

So, before I take the plunge and drop $1750 on this beauty, what are the chances that Apple will join other retailers in the annual Thanksgiving/Christmas madness and offer 50% as a part of some crazy sale?  Or is Apple truly recession proof?
