Happy Birthday iMac

20 years ago – some of us took a chance on a translucent Bondi Blue new computer called the iMac. IT is hard to believe it was 20 years ago – but I have enjoyed watching it change shape. Thank you Apple!

20 Years of the iMac

From the original to the latest – it is hard to believe the iMac has been out there for 20 years. I decided to retire my Mac Mini today after needing some faster processing power.

Seriously Apple – Find an iMovie Interface and Stick to It

Wow. How many times will Apple release a new version of iMovie and completely change the interface and how it works? I cannot tell you how many versions now I have used of iMovie that were completely different than the previous. Each time I have to either waste an hour or so to figure out how to work with my media or read the manual. Good thing I am not afraid to do both – but I feel bad for people who are not as patient as I am.

Amy recently took a grad class on technology in the classroom and the instructor on the last day was going to show everyone how to use iMovie, but unfortunately, the computer they provided to him was new and had the new version of iMovie (iMovie 7) and he was used to iMovie 6…and so he could not do anything. Seriously Apple…

PS – Happy birthday Salsa and the iMac!

a day of birthdays.

Salsa

A quick post to wish my youngest cat – Salsa – a happy birthday (and the iMac) I have been swamped the last few days but think I have figured out how to properly set up MediaWiki to use user permissions without having to hack something together. Now to get some time together to implement it. 😉
