Jumping into the “Apple” Cart

American's-Delight-apple-label

We’ve been talking about it for a while. We’ve been thinking it over. We’re past those points now. We’ve gone and done it! We’ve jumped into the “Apple” cart. We’re saying goodbye to Microsoft PCs and we’re getting iMacs. The release of the latest iMac generation just tipped the scales for our decision-making. We’ve also wanted to get a tablet to take with us on our travels instead of a heavy laptop. So we went ahead and got an iPad2 while we were there at the store. The apple cart got full, LOL!

We’ll take our hard drives in tomorrow to our local Apple store, and they will transfer our files for us and get the software all loaded. Later on next week, we’ll take care of getting our Photoshop CS5 program licensed with Adobe transferred over to Mac use instead of Windows. Of course, we will be getting used to our new operating system and setups for a while!

I will sadly say goodbye to my beloved Windows Live Writer for blog posts. It has been a dream to use this past year. That means my cursing vocabulary will get a workout when I resume using the dreaded Blogger editor again. Do my dear readers have any recommendations on a good editor for Mac users?

I will try to get a couple of blog posts lined up for publishing while I go through this drastic transition phase. Wish me luck! In the meantime…

Caution: Slow Blogging Ahead!

  1. Ahhh...another convert! I switched in January (it all started when I needed a new phone and got an iPhone a year ago)...now we are all Mac, all the time. I haven't been able to blog from the iPad, though...and haven't searched for a solution yet, either, though. Anyway, enjoy the new toys. Expensive, but worth it!

  2. I have a Mac and have always used the Blogger editor. I am still using the old one though. I have not updated. I don't want to. I like the last version just fine.

    Good luck with the transition.

  4. Welcome to the world of Apple!! I converted about 2 years ago and I have never looked back. No viruses, no windows crashing no microsoft crappy programs! It is heaven!

    And the ipad2 is the icing on the cupcake. Let me know if you need any apple assistance, they are the BEST computers ever made!

    Hail to Steve Jobs!

  8. Good luck with all that! I am WAY intimidated by the Mac so it's probably going to be a long time before I see one!!My daughter has one and loves it, though!
