MacBook Pro 15.4″ 2.8Ghz 4Gb RAM

MacBook Pro 15.4″ 2.8Ghz 4Gb RAM

Yep, I recently bought one… and count me in as one of the growing Mac converts.  Thanks to Windows Vista, I finally took the courage to switch.  Windows just plain sucks.

This package came via DHL and ordered via Apple Philippines (website).  There’s no stock available in Davao (I waited for a month) and I didn’t want to fly to Manila.  It was a bit more expensive than retail but don’t you just love it when they deliver it to your doorstep?

What are you waiting for? Join na!

Here are more photos of the un-boxing.  I don’t care what you think, I’ve-got-a-MacBook 😛

Steve Jobs take a leave of absence from Apple

Steve Jobs take a leave of absence from Apple

Steve Jobs takes a leave of absence and COO Tim Cook takes over day to day operations of Apple:

Team,

I am sure all of you saw my letter last week sharing something very personal with the Apple community. Unfortunately, the curiosity over my personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my family, but everyone else at Apple as well. In addition, during the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought.

In order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health, and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until the end of June.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for Apple’s day to day operations, and I know he and the rest of the executive management team will do a great job. As CEO, I plan to remain involved in major strategic decisions while I am out. Our board of directors fully supports this plan.

I look forward to seeing all of you this summer.

Steve

Microsoft vs Apple – I’m a PC

Google screenshot.Do you think Apple hijacked the keywords “i’m a pc”? When you search Google for the phrase “i’m a pc”, the first results that come out is an Apple web page.

“I’m a PC.”, of course, is the slogan that Microsoft uses repetitively in their new series of advertisements post-Seinfeld.

I don’t know if I should laugh or cry. I feel bad for Microsoft. Aesthetically, Mac/OSX is better. But Microsoft Windows/PC products are very useful to me right now.

What are you gonna do? Most application developers look to be compatible with Microsoft first, before Mac operating systems.  If all functionalities were equal, I would prefer Apple products because they look cooler. Read the rest of this entry
