Do you have an I-phone or a Mac?

Politics Nothing goes with politics quite like crying and complaining, and we're a perfect example of that.

Do you have an I-phone or a Mac?

Al Gore is like any other Democrat, loose lips. He's and idiot.

As far as apple. Bought my daughter a Mac Pro for school last year. It's awesome. Thinking of switching my wife's biz over to one. She's due for a new PC.

The I phone. I got my wife one with VZ. Its nice. I wanted one and was going to switch to VZ. For some archaic reasons, if the phone ran over 200, i needed approval from my SVP. The I phone was 229. Seriously, spending 29 required approval? So at&t had a 4g Droid for 199.

AWESOME phone by far. I use it for calls, texting, emails, GPS and now planning on leaving my PC behind because it can handle all my power point presentations. I.ve got a car docking station that turns the phone into a GPS as soon as it is docked. It not only charges but also works well for calling a texting while driving down the road. I just bought the multimedia docking station that allows me to display the phone on an HDTV, video monitor and video projector. It came with a keyboard, mouse and remote control. So now I can use the hotel tv to surf, answer emails and even watch Netflix while on the road. Very very powerful.

For you old farts who don't embrace this technology, why do you really need to? If you're retired and not day trading, why stay in contact? However, for us working stiffs, texting has become a great way to remain in contact with my customers and peers. Like voice mail in the past, conversations are kept short and to the point. Response times are faster than a phone call.

hey, there sonny just because we are old doesn't mean we are dead. I got 4 computers going, Got my own web server. Going to set up a full media player next and complete security system.
I have taught myself. between that and garden, hunting I am in good shape, if not a wee bit overweight. Now days you can have Unix or Linux systems all free. With more software than Micomadness ever thought of. ,
But.....I don't have a cell phone. I would have to have a microscope to text
