Last Friday, when Dr Fro was here, he noticed my Mac iBook and for a few minutes we discussed my recent conversion to the church of all things Apple. Basically speaking, Mrs Johnnymac bought me one of these for Christmas a couple of years ago and I was hooked. My Christmas present the next year was the laptop that I am currently using and we're going to add a new iMac to the family when the new models are released later this summer. (And if you are reading this and saying to yourself, "pffft, Macs are overpriced toys, give me Dell loaded with Vista anyday...." I will tell you that you probably have never tried a Mac and have absolutely no idea what you're missing... the commercials are dead-on, I say)
With my enthusiasm for Apple, a lot of people who know about it kept asking me yesterday why I wasn't standing in line for an iPhone... and the answer is that Mrs Johnnymac and I have decided that we're going to purchase a pair for ourselves in November as mutual Christmas presents when her cell contract finally expires. We're already Cingul- errrr, "at&t" customers, but I have a feeling that in the next couple of days and weeks some kinks and bugs are going to start being discovered and 5 months will likely be enough time to get most of those cleared up. I also think that the price will start going down by then, too, because right now those things are expensive.
So, after all of that, I now have an excuse to show this, which, I think is kinda cool in an absurd way:
And the original iPod? It died, literally on the day Baby Johnnymac was born. Which, ended up kind of cool in a way, because a new one showed up in an unmarked wrapped box on Father's Day.
Damn, that baby's sneaky. He can't even walk and he still made it to the Apple Store!
