If you have no interest in Apples you might want to look away now.
Using Cromarty during a flight this week I was aware of the lady sat next to me having a good old nosy at him. At first I thought she was reading my inbox and I couldn't help wondering what somebody would guess it was all about. However, when we landed and I put Cromarty away to get Bailey out, she admitted she was "double jealous now". Turns out she had come over from America and had chosen to leave behind her iPod. As I told her, I take him everywhere. And I do. How on earth did I manage without it... and what must she have thought about me assigning a gender to an MP3 player??
How jealous would she have been if I then put on one of these. Thanks to David Clark for the link.
When I bought the iBook last year I said I had no plans to switch from Windows and I still don't. Having said that, I do find myself turning to the Mac whenever I can. I could spend ages just sitting and looking at it, playing with the animated Dock icons.
Part of the appeal of the Mac is that it's still a new platform to me. Hence I can feed my hunger for knowledge whereas there's not much you can teach me about Windows. It also looks damn hot!
From the mail I've been receiving I am guessing there are others out there who are curious as well. That's why I'm going to talk about nothing but Apple for the next few days or so. Trying to answer some of your questions along the way.
