Do you treat your iPod like a baby or your baby like an iPod? Some folks do. And what about that possible taxi strike because of requirements for GPS systems. Are you in favor of the taxi commission or the cabbies? Don’t know what I am talking about? Hmm, well we can solve that. Just catch up on this past week’s article in the Computing Blog.

In my usual disclaimer I have to say that I am very partial to Macs. Their superior operating system and easy of use just make Macs a great machine. More and more people are starting to agree with me, as sales of the Mac are growing by leaps and bounds. Mac computers are still only a small percentage of all PC sales, though, and I think that may partially be due to the fact that the majority of software out in the world is written for Windows-based machines. Sure, there are some Mac versions of popular software, mostly in the educational arena, but there is still definitely a gap in the offerings.
