Apple Mac

I feel particularly proud of myself.

Computers and cars and bikes are one and the same to me; I know what I like, I want it to look good, I want it to work well, but I don't really want to know what goes on behind the scenes.

Today, I bought an internal DVD drive for my G4. I've opened it up once before and that was to install RAM. I found out how to remove the old drive and installed the new one.

Piece of cake.

Any IT geek will do this blindfolded, but I don't profess to being a geek.
I'm proud of myself, but it's only made easy by the uber geeks in Cupertino, the Apple Mac designers, who create machines as clutter-free on the inside as they are on the outside.

Having just sung the praises of the Mac, I've just found out that Jonathan Ive, the British fella who designs for Apple, has been made a CBE. Quite right too.

So you reckon your not a geek, hmmm!! I always suspected that anybody who writes a blog in the middle of the night has surely got to have a certain 'je ne sais geek' about them!..........:-)

Talking of Macs, if you think the G4 is slick on the inside , you've got to check out the outside and inside of the G5......pretty amazing design wise, and v.straight forward to upgrade ram, drives etc, well cool. Although the jury is still out on performance, so far so good!

Hope you and yours are all well, Sarah gave me your blogging address,............Geek!..............hows tricks?

Dude, all pc's are clutter free inside, not specifc to Apple. The only difference with Apple is that the you pay a fortune for hardware ;-)
