No .. it was at the Mother Ship in Santa Clara, CA.

By the way ... this year Intel's sell line is ...

"This holiday, share the gift of multitasking."

Sorta warms the heart and makes you well up inside, doesn't it?

just curious , I noticed that Inside Out edited Silvertwinkie's original post. Why?
Inquiring mind cant imagine.
Didnt seem to slow down the responses.

I wish more threads would be rearranged to more pertinent forums and locales within the overall community.

I split this from a different thread because it had taken on a life of it's own and in doing so I "edited" Eric's original post...

I think the reason it was modified was simply that the discussion was getting way off topic from the orig discussion, so Shari just created a different topic to keep the threads on track.

Spooky at first, but kind of funny had you seen the look on my face as I noticed that I started a thread that I couldn't recall doing...I thought I had too many beers one evening and TUId...(typed under the influence).

In reality, she just pulled the thread from when it started to get way off topic and placed it here as a thread of it's own.

Thanks Shari.

Eric

I've heard that rumor too. I also heard that Bill Gates's doormat to his house is a melted down Mac.

Have you heard..."Welcome to Hell, here's your copy of Windows."?

That wouldn't surprise me...I mean for all of XPs improvements since 3.1, it has always been a few lengths shy of where Apple has been. Now that open source has taken off and Linux has really been more widely accepted, I could see Bill with a Linux box too.

Any of you see the movie Pirates of Silicon Valley? If you haven't....rent it. If you are into the behind the scenes kind of stuff, it should be right up your alley!

I myself found it pretty interesting.

I am just very pleased to see Apple finally hitting on all 8. I mean, Steve is a visionary, but has in the past had bad business sense. In his second term in mgmt at Apple, I am glad to see how he's finally figured out how to exploit the features of what I like to consider a better mouse trap and guide the company to a place where it appears others need to once again follow.

My MOL is thinking of getting her first computer at age 66. She wants a laptop. I am thinking of trying to talk her into an Apple. I am getting sick and tired of Windoze myself. My computer has been giving me all kinds of fits these last few weeks. IE is unusable, I am using Opera now. When Opera gets cranky, I reboot to Mandrake Linux and use Mozilla. Time to do a "Format C:"

What you guys think? Can an old gal learn a Mac?
