The Apple World Wide Developer Conference is also up at the end of the month, where new Powermac G5’s and possibly an iMac G5 are expected. Both are out of my price range and out of my “need” range, but it’s still cool to drool.
Just a quick list of some Mac games I’d been eyeing up and wanted to save the list here since Amazon is so rotten at sorting their gaming section:
Quite possibly very creepy, very funny but at the same time an apt description of the whole Windows vs Apple debate (debacle?) that goes on. I’ve included the original article in it’s entirety just in case it disappears but it came from this site’s entry.
" I have bought more software for my Mac than I ever did for my Windows PCs, most of it shareware. Is it really that much higher quality? Or am I buying her presents?"
The Mac Blog has moved to being a joint effort with coworkers and is now located here. It’s just a bookmark blog for neat Apple related stuff we come across while we work. Very geeky.
The Lydia’s open mic gig went pretty good last night. We had our drummer drop out at the last minute but Mark (Marc?) stepped in and covered well on congos and the full kit for Desire. I find it really hard to do much dynamically on accoustic so it felt like our set just was a mash of songs blending together. I really should have gotten a better accoustic guitar a long time ago but my techie interests always get in the way of the funds being there. Maybe a nice Simon and Patrick. Hmmmmm…
I think I have a performance inhibitor in my brain. Whenever I go on stage I’m sure it looks like I’m pissed to be there and not having a good time at all. The opposite is actually true. I’m having a great time, loving the music but I just don’t know what to do with myself. I get lost in playing the guitar and forget to move… and so I end up like a statue. Which is fine if you’re the only one doing it in a band… but we all tend to do that so we look like a band of robots sometimes.
Ah but we’re just getting started. Give it time I guess. Once we make the jump to stadium rock we’ll get the stage dives, guitar solos on my knees and flaming guitars going hard core.
Any fellow iTunes users out there (Apple or Windows) might want to go grab the 4.5 update to iTunes they released this morning.
Now if only the iTunes music store would hit Canada I could empty my bank account into music like I want to.
I’m thinking of selling our eMac and putting the money towards an iBook for Sue – anyone interested? I haven’t totally decided to sell it but there’s some good prices going for them on eBay so it’s got me interested.
This is what you could buy right now if you were looking at a new eMac:
Mine is the 1Ghz model with more RAM (640MB) but less hard drive (a 60GB). We bought it August 2003 so it still has 4 months of warranty on it. I could throw on an extra 2 years of warranty for $200. iLife ’04 (Garageband) is on it, as is Panther. I think we may even still have the original box.
Even if you’re not interested in buying it, if I listed it on ebay is $1000 a fair price?
