I have a couple of Macs in my life these days: A shiny new 24″ iMac, and an old G3 iMac like the photo here.
The new one is running OS 10.4 – so no dramas there. But this old one is on 10.2. Not that old – but I can’t seem to find any software for it! Everything I find (either free or commercial) wants a newer flavour of OSX.
So with the exception of Firefox (which I’m using at the moment) I’m stuck with whatever came on the OSX Jaguar CDs.
That strikes me as a bit weird. Surely there must be a place to go for older OSX software. Anyone know of such a place?
Everything “cool” these days seems to be prefixed with an “i”.
So what does someone who’s been using Windows since version 3.1 make of all this?
As they saying goes: if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!
I purchased my first iPod – a Nano – back in October 2005, and fell in love. I have since added a Touch and a Shuffle to the lineup. Let me tell you: the Touch has been an experience! More on that later.
As far as the bigger ticket items are concerned, I was fortunate enough to win an iMac at a conference last year (thanks guys!) That was a real bonus – being able to try out a Mac without having for put my hand in my pocket!
It seems that more and more people are switching from PC to Mac – so we all must be having similar issues. Like not being able to maximise a window. And plenty of other stuff. So I thought I’d post some experiences and observations here. Feel free to add yours in the comments too, and maybe together we’ll figure out all these “i” things!
