Iâ€™ve been a diehard PC user since I was four. Iâ€™ve used Macâ€™s here and there over the years, mostly in school and at the workplace. Iâ€™ve never felt totally comfortable with them. Either the software I need is available for the Mac or I feel like the options are too dumbed-down to make things plain enough for anyone to understand.
But this thing is different.
I appreciate design. Not so much in how something in appears, but in how an object, website or tool will combine asthetics, functionality, and maybe some innovation. When all of those things are combined, true art is achieved. The MacBook Air is the closest thing to true art that a computer can be at this time.
Another temptation that Iâ€™ve held out on is the iPhone. Initially I was hoping that Google would be releasing their rumored Google phone. When Android was announced as a platform instead of a phone, I was a bit disappointed, but the phones that the platform will pull to the market will be likely be spectacular and bring the mobile industry much farther than it has come in recent years.
Now I find myself wondering if I shouldnâ€™t wait for an Android phone or the next-gen iPhone. In the meantime Iâ€™m stuck with my two year old Sanyo handset that gets spectacular reception, but not much else.
