Mac Conversion Update

Chuck Zimmerman

It’s been a while since I’ve given you a Mac update. This one got triggered because I’m writing an article on using a Mac for farm use for Country Guide. It’s made me think through why I have a Mac and why I like it vs. my PC. I really think I can sum things up in these words, “The …

Not Paying Close Attention

Chuck Zimmerman

Our presenter here at the appleJAC Mac Users Group meeting is going through the different types of digital cameras there are available. He hasn’t mentioned the iSight built in to most Macs today.

Here’s a new/next step in my Mac conversion experience. I’m attending my first appleJAC Mac Users Group meeting. “Hello, my name is Chuck Zimmerman and I’m a Macaholic.” Actually we’re getting a presentation on digital photography right now.

My News Feed Subscriptions

Chuck Zimmerman

I’ve been asked more than a few times what news feeds I subscribe to. I actually change them periodically although some of them have remained the same for quite a while now.

Is there anyone who doesn’t know what company this logo stands for? When I got home this afternoon from a blog training session in Kansas City I found that my Mac had arrived. You’ll notice that the apple is not lit up. That’s because I haven’t had time to turn it on yet and yes, I’m typing this on a …
