No, it’s not me switching from PC to Mac, but the tech editor at The age. I’ve been thinking about it a lot though, and that’s why I found this short article interesting. Basically he describes all pros and cons and shares his experiences with the transition from PC to Mac.
The big announcement on today’s keynote was the new Apple Mac Pro. It’s the fastest Mac ever, and the tech specs are impressive! But the price is also quite ‘impressive’ – $2,499 for the suggested configuration.

A guy used this article on How to open up your iPod shuffle – even though the first sentence in the guide is “Don’t!

Nike and Apple have teamed together in a project called Nike+iPod. The idea is not crystal clear, but it seems to be some kind of sensor that you put in your shoes to be able to track your progress and ‘get connected to your running experience’. Oh la la.
“Any mere pedometer can show you stats while you run. But thanks to the Nike+iPod sensor and receiver, iPod nano also transfers your workout data to the Internet as soon as you sync. Connect your iPod, and iTunes takes over, automatically syncing all your run data and sending it to nikeplus.com.”
If you have had the pleasure of unpacking a product from Apple lately, you know that they have spent some serious amount of time to get the packing right. That’s why it’s interesting to see the new MacBook Pro get unboxed from its packaging. Check out this photostream at flickr.
