I love my MacBook Pro, but as stupid as this sounds, I didn’t expect to be taking it so many places. I know, a laptop is meant to be portable, but I just didn’t expect to have to lug it to work every day. Maybe I’m just dumb. Anyways, the top of my MBP isn’t Read more…

For the Love of Something Old
Before I ever purchased my first Apple product, I lusted after them like crazy. A neighbor of mine had a PowerMac G5 that I lusted after wildly, even though I had no idea what it was capable of, because it just looked so much cooler than every beige box I owned prior. But then, one Read more…

I’ve got a bad case of “Ineedanewcomputeritis,” and it’s driving me nuts. A few months back, I upgraded the internal hard drive on my 15-inch MBP with a 500GB, 7200 RPM model, and I was pretty happy. But as things tend to go, as time went on, my hard drive got fuller and fuller until Read more…

The Apple MagSafe Adapter – Winding it the Right Way

The Apple MagSafe Adapter - Winding it the Right Way
Funny story: I bought my first MacBook back in 2006 I believe, and with it came a MagSafe adapter. I used that computer for several years until one day, I started a job at a place where people used MacBooks all the time. I was walking by my boss’ office around closing time, and I Read more…

Looking for a New MacBook Pro? Now’s the Time To Buy – Kinda

Looking for a New MacBook Pro? Now's the Time To Buy - Kinda
Last year, I was working for a really crappy company. OK, the people there weren’t crappy, but the company sure was. I was promoted, and in that position, I was required to have a laptop.
