Over the last few months I’ve acquired a few items from Apple. Namely and Mac Book Pro 13″, an iPod Touch 2nd gen (which came with the Mac Book Pro and I’m reselling, probably) and an iPhone, with O2.
I’m quite pleased to be honest. It might be that I’m getting older but I’m lately not so apt to be continually fighting configuration issues and stuff with Linux (which I haven’t erased from my life. Use it at work, my servers and my desktop). Anyway, the Mac Book Pro was a no brainer, specially since it’s light, small and powerful (which makes it perfect for me to carry it around) and comes with Leopard (now upgraded to Snow Leopard) which is a very nice operating system (and I still love having good old unix underneath).
The iPhone was more of an issue in terms of decision making. I was considering getting an Android based handset, like the HTC Hero, myself, but after much though, I believe that it’s not ready and mature enough to go for it. So I opted for an iPhone. I’ll wait until next year and see how the market is and decide again (I can always sell my iPhone as there’s always a market for this). So we shall see.
Any suggestions to make the best out of all these Apple goodies?

So, they finally are moving to intel. Amazing…
I guess now there are millions of mac users completely upset

It’s interesting to think about it for a while and the effect it would have, even on all the apple lovers.
If somebody thinks this way apple would be a PC maker, this is highly unlikely, as some readers on slashdot point out. The thing is that a PC is not only a processor, but also an architecture. So, if apple simply removes the north bridge and uses an improved version or a similar IC, it would not be compatible at all with X86, as well as removing that back compatibility crap x86 has been perpetuating for so long. On the other hand, they could use a VLIW architecture, as in the itanium chip, and so, again it would be incompatible with the X86 market, but not on Linux (I guess).
Anyway, let’s’ see what’s apple next move
