Apple

Oh My Gosh! I finally did it – after all these years (since the days of DOS for heaven’s sakes!) I have made the switch. Today I walked into an Apple Boutique, looked at the 27 inch desktop and said, I’ll take it!

Now I’m experiencing what I always feel with a major new piece of technology – stress. Oh sure, some of it is good stress – but still. Tomorrow morning I am taking my PC to the store and they will transfer all my data. So far so good. But I know there will still be work to be done. (Murphy’s Law – when they say it’s going to be simple, something will go wrong.)

Just for starters, I have programs to download, my Bridge program, Google Earth,. Garmin, an accounting program because for some very strange reason QuickBooks does not see fit to make a program for Mac in Canada = dropbox, adobe and so on. I still have to do that. And then, of course, I have to become thoroughly familiar with the new computer and software by Monday morning when a flat-out work week begins.

So – I am excited and nervous and – well – that whole soup of emotions it’s hard to put a name to. Most importantly, when I pick my new computer up tomorrow afternoon, I have to make sure it’s set up by dinner time so I can play bridge online by the time I’m ready to eat. Yup – that’s me: the single woman eating dinner every night all alone with only bridge players from around the world to keep me company. Sad, huh? (actually it’s not – it only sounds that way.)

So glad I have my iPad – just in case. Imagine being without online technology for even a few hours! Interesting how I depend on it.

I hope the Mac is everything I’ve head it will be. The great news is that I got an awesome deal on it – plus the data transfer, office software, new external hard drive for backups – got it all. And hey – no cables to worry about for a change. I am so tired of the zillion wires snaking around the room. I just have to plug in my printer, plug in the power cord and I’m done. Sounds good to me.

But I’m still excited, nervous etc. etc.
