New Computer - Mac or PC?

My computer is puttering out and near its final months. It's done its job for nearly six years, but soon it'll be time to send it to laptop heaven and replace it with a new bouncing baby laptop.

That being said, I need your opinions folks. I'm contemplating switching from a PC-based system to a Mac-based system. Those of you who have had both, I would greatly appreciate your opinions on pros and cons of one or the other. I'm basically bringing up the age-old question:

Mac or PC?

So I just saw that +Em Wells liked one of my posts from a while back. Why do I say this? Because I realize how much I truly miss hanging out with people on G+.

Hopefully during my semester break I'll be able to hang out and hopefully my old hangout family (+Christopher Lira, +Raleigh Burke, +John Fanavans, +Peter G McDermott, +Stacy Frazer, +Cliff Roth, +Amanda Blain, and many, many more) will take me back in.

I'm sorry I've been gone for so long.

I was whisked away by the powers of Facebook and the familiarity of family and "IRL" friends. I was also trying to get on a semi-regular sleep schedule that didn't include going to bed at 4, 5, or even 6 in the morning and waking up around noon. Then life got me and now school has me in a sleeper hold until 2/3 of the way through December.

Like I said, I apologize for jumping ship for a bit. I'll try to make a more conscious effort to check things on here more often, but there are no guarantees.

I hope you all can forgive me and will welcome me back in about a month. Perhaps you can catch me up on a year's worth of jokes, etc.

Bye-bye Blackberry

Hello Android!

I'm getting the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the mail on Thursday. I've had a Blackberry for about five years now. I don't know what made me make the change, but I did.

So, three questions:

1) For those of you who have made the switch from your Crackberry to Android-based phones - any likes/dislikes? Any tips or tricks for switching over?

2) For those who have Android-based phones - what apps are essential for your day-to-day usage of your phone? What tips or tricks do you have?

3) For those of you who have the Galaxy S3 already - what's been your experience like so far?

I'd greatly appreciate everyone's comments!

One of the things that took me a while to understand, and which I think many new users don't realise, is the role of your mobile device in connection with the various Google services. Gmail, Contacts, Calender, Drive, etc. Theses are true cloud services, and that means that the idea of the information being primarily on your phone or on your computer and you synching between them is wrong. The information is in the cloud, and both your computer and your phone are just ways of accessing it.

Drive to DMV and possibly have an unsavory experience with the fine, warm-hearted folks there OR renew licence plates online and pay $1.25 convenience charge?

Which would you choose?

Now if it were just possible to submit to them a photo for my drivers licence and have them mail it to me. Luckily they last 8 years!

HOLY CRAP, IT'S HERE!

No, really, it is. My limited edition +Plus One Collection photography book hath arrived. I haven't had a chance to take a hard look at it (I have to leave for work in a few minutes), but from first glances I think the book and I will get along nicely.

Saturday, I'll have a semi-staged unboxing of the book (however, I don't think I can beat +Kerry Murphy's photo where it's already on her coffee table as a conversation starter).

Thanks to +Ivan Makarov, et al. for all your hard work in putting this phenomenal project together.

+Kerry Murphy: I wish I had a coffee table to put it on. I guess you need a place of your own to have a coffee table.

I told my father that if he's to touch the book, he's to wear gloves or wash his hands like no other!

The piano has a nice bright treble that lends itself to this song. Nicely done.

I watch all the old old series like Gunsmoke and Rifleman. My wife and I also like mysteries and police dramas. CSI and Bones are two of her favorites.
