Popular Opinion...

Well, if you don't know me I've got to tell you: I'm an apple fan! I converted almost two years ago and received my first Macbook Pro over one year ago. I love it! Apple has done a great job marketing their product in recent years taking aim at "PC" guy. Well, when Microsoft released Vista it received some poor reviews and all the sudden everyone was a Vista hater.

Recently, Microsoft had a great idea to help change the (un)popular opinion of their latest operating system. It's amazing what people believe when they are just told, including me. (I have still not used Vista)

Check this out!

Last night...
Over 8 years ago my sweet in-laws, Freddie and Judy Page wanted to purchase a computer, they wanted an apple. I tried to persuade them not to get one. I said things like they are overpriced, they are not compatible with the rest of the computers of the world, there is so much more software out there in PC land, etc. They wanted a mac because that is what Judy used at school- she's a teacher. Well, last night I helped install a wireless router at their house and I did it on their 8 year old apple computer. They still use it everyday and it runs fantastic. I've had 2 PC desktops and 1 PC laptop during that time, neither of which do I still use. Shows you how much I know!
