My DD214

Veterans should be a thing of the past.

Product Review

OK. I am ready to talk. Over the last four weeks, I've had the following neato things happen to me. I started my last academic quarter at IPR, moved to a new house (the second move in under two months), used the term "bone ramakin" accurately in normal conversation, lost my wallet, had a birthday, got a new bicycle and, most importantly, bought a new laptop computer. The latter is what I'd like to discuss.

It was April 20th and I was on my way to purchase my new machine. I had my heart set on the new MacBook Pro, 15" monster. In order to go through with it, I had to stop off at my place of work, Tucci Bennucch, for a bite to eat and a couple cocktails. After a martini and a martini I went to the Apple store in the Mall of America to make the purchase. I couldn't be happier.

This machine is absolutely amazing. It's load time for OS X is super short; it is very thin and weighs next to nothing; it contains dual-core Intel processing; it is customizable to ridiculous ends; it updates my iCal planner to my iPod automatically (which is extra awesome); it has a power cable the attaches using magnets so that if you pull it or if someone trips over it, it self releases with ease; and it's battleship-gray.

The only problems I've had with it so far are that it cost me $22xx.xx (with a .mac account and an Apple Care Protection Plan for 3 years) and that software companies are still working on Mac-Intel mods for their products to make them functional on the MacBook Pro. These updates should be relatively fast in coming because of how whoop-ass this computer is doing.

So what does this all mean?

Basically, I should be able to keep Clay from crying so much about how I don't write on the blog as much as I should.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to provide a link or two on some stuff I've been enjoying lately: an atheist podcast that I find kind-of cool, open, and who's heart is in the right place (not to mention that they're atheist:D); watch some videos, I know it's AOL, but it's a really cool idea.

Thanks, guys. Here's your much-awaited picture from Will.
