    I’m a Windows PC person. Well, Windows 7. I haven’t heard too many good things about Windows 8. My wife is a Mac person. I am not a fan of her Mac. To me, it’s way less intuitive than my Windows laptop, but I’ve been using my Windows laptop since forever (well, since Windows replaced MS-DOS, anyway).

    On the other hand, I am a big iPhone person. Well, not that I’m a particularly big person, and not that my iPhone is a big one. But I’m a big fan of the iPhone. And tomorrow, my new iPhone 6 is supposed to be delivered. Not the Plus. That’s too big for a phone per my tastes, but the regular 6. I didn’t get it at Staples, though. It’s a company issued phone that is being shipped directly from Verizon.

    And honestly, I don’t know why I wrote this comment. I thin I’ll just go to sleep now.

      I think it’s funny that you say the Windows is more intuitive cause that is the first thing I always say when I tell people what I love about my Mac. I feel like it’s effortless to use, and any new feature or program can be learned easily.

      Also, jealous you will be getting your phone. They told me pre-orders are 2-3 weeks out now and I better order it ASAP before Black Friday!

        I guess it’s what you’re accustom to. I am so used to Windows that I can do pretty much anything I need to do easily. But when I am using my wife’s Mac Pro laptop (or whatever it is), I can’t figure out how to find saved files or where to save files so that I can find them again. And the mouse only one button. It’s all a big mystery to me.

        Of course, if I have to eventually move to Windows 8, that might be a big mystery to me as well. Maybe that would be a good time to consider a Mac.

        My iPhone 6 was ordered around 3 weeks ago, so it’s been a bit of a waiting game. But per the email I got from Verizon, it should be delivered tomorrow. Yay!

    You’ve got a friend indeed, Cheney. Beautiful! Way to be brave and crack the code, too.

    I’ve been won over to the Apple world since I went iPhone 4 to finally join the smart word 2 1/2 years ago and liked it so much that I went to the iPad 2 with a bluetooth keyboard instead of a laptop to carry around to write remotely at events instead of the company-issued Windows laptop when I still worked at the big daily. Our laptop at home is four years old Windows Vista, but I only use it when I have to attach pdf files for digital job applications. That’s still a glitch for my iPad Air Pages app, where I store my resume and write my cover letters. It can transfer them to pdf for emails, but not for attachments to Safari.

    Have fun with you iMac, Cheney. Go to town doing beautiful work.

      I am going to try. I updated it to Yosemite, the newest OS, so now I am playing around with that and learning all the new stuff. The syncing between the computer and the phone is instant and incredible!

    Nice! Lucky you!! (I switched from a PC to a Macbook and from an iPhone to a Galaxy Note; I’m pretty happy with both decisions.)
