Tuesday 15. It’s Steve Jobs And Apple Fans Day

Today at 9 AM PST Steve Jobs is going to make his annual keynote address at San Francisco’s Moscone Center. Some of you, Apple fans (you are supposed to represent 8% of the computing population, so 8% of my readers!) are getting very excited and will enclose themselves in their office watching live on internet Steve making his announcements. A show to demonstrate that Microsoft past near-monopoly is melting like a north pole ice cap. Personally, I am tired of the “Blue Screen Of Death” of Microsoft and already began the transition to Mac (still have one remaining PC till it crashes, probably very soon). So, I will watch, too, hoping that Apple will introduce the rumored skinny MacBook (called Air?) working without a hard drive replaced by a solid-state flash drive (no noise), half as thick as today’s MacBooks, under 3 lbs? A traveling blogger dream. Please, my PC laptop, crash tomorrow so that I don’t feel guilty buying some “Mac Air”. And if you wonder why I am posting about computers, it’s because I don’t want you to tell me again that you could not read my Blog during 3 weeks because your PC got the "Blue Screen Of Death". Also,  because Steve Jobs keynote is the largest live blogging event on the net. Gizmodo’s live blogging it. Geekbrief’s live blogging it. Every tech blog seems to live blogging it. Pretty geeky. "And one more thing", like Steve Jobs says at the end of each keynote: this post written & uploaded on a Mac. Apple.

    Could it be possible that 8% of your readership are also Knucklehead riders? I check into our blog on a MacBook or a 20″ iMac. No blue screens here !

    Mac Air is about twice the price it should be in either configuration.

    As a long time PC user who switched to Mac 2 years ago, you can’t understand the value, the stability of the OS, the innovations of Apple until you use their computers. Until you know and experience how much you get with a Mac (and now a Mac Air), you can’t understand its value versus a PC. You get 5 times more from a Mac than from a PC of the same price. Goldiron, you can even run Windows XP on a Mac faster than on a PC. Everybody switch to a Mac before you get the next virus and the blue screen of death.

    From a Mac user. To TURN OFF a PC you click first on START???? LOL. Apple ihas now 8% of the laptop market (double last year). Next year 16%, and so on. Microsoft is a dinosaur.

    Been using both PCs and Macs for years. ProTools and the rest of the digidesign products run best on the Apple OS. Rarely do I ever need a PC anymore. Just sayin’, the price is similarly extravagant like their iPhone was upon the debut. I feel that they would have moved into the market much stronger at a different and lower price point.

    So Cyril have you ordered your Mac Air already, or are you already using it.

    I’m on a Mac too – since 1984. Occasionally I run Windows on my Mac, but only at work when required by the situation, and it’s always a pain.

    Help my PC won’t crash !! My wallet did already (lol)

    God bless Mac lovers.

    I just inherited a PC laptop (free) from someone who couldn’t wait to ditch it for a Mac.

    Now i can take all my PC based CAD stuff with me when i go on vacation. It works just fine!

    And my wallet didn’t even flinch.

    Thanks Mac………….:-)
