Mac or PC

I guess I will be sitting down to my work area from now on asking myself that question: Mac or PC?

The reason why: I just purchased and finished setting up a Mac mini.  It’s a cute little machine, a great little starter Mac.  This is my first Mac and so far I am quite impressed with everything they fit into the box, especially as small as the box is. I plugged in a standard USB keyboard, and a standard USB mouse, along with an analog 17 inch flat panel monitor and turned it on.

After following the prompts I connected to the Internet and then started poking around changing a few settings and making sure the time was correct and the timezone matched my own.  Most of the workings are fairly intuitive which I somewhat expected given how well I have adapted to my iPod Touch.  I was a little surprised when I found the update application program, ran it, and found 675MB of updates required.  I’m writing this post on my main PC as the mini Mac (my wife’s choice of words, and I like them, too) is still working away at installing the seven updates it found. I was thrilled that it connected via Wi-Fi and that I have a fairly decent high-speed Internet connection.

If you have both a PC and a Mac, leave a comment on which you like to blog with … I’d like to know.

Starbuck’s Wi-Fi

Here I sit drinking a Tazo Chai Grande, no water and writing this post using the WordPress iPod app. I’m looking out the front window and see it is just starting to lightly snow.

There is yet another Winter Storm warning in effect; it is the third or fourth issued in the last two weeks. That being the case and I have at least two more stops on my tour today I will be keeping this short.

The chai is very good; the Starbucks is bustling; Christmas is around the corner; and, I’m on my way.
