Happy Memorial Day!!

How is everyone??!! It's the day before Memorial Day, and I'm just relaxing at home! Got the day off tomorrow, so I get one of those rare 2-day weekends!! In retail if you don't ask for a weekend off as vacation time, you usually don't get many off them. I get maybe 4 weekends off a year with out having to use some of my 3 weeks of vacation time.

I'm not retro yet....



I got a call from my mom last week saying that her computer was running slow. I had given her my old Power Macintosh G4 "Digital Audio" 533mhz (single) w/ 512MB RAM running OS 10.4.11 about 3-4 years ago. I'm actually quite surprised that I have not received this call before, but the G4 has held up really well over the years, plus she is not a demanding user, just email, iTunes, and occasionally Microsoft Word.

iPod Podcast

Hi Apple people,
I recently found my passion for iPods and wanted to start a podcast. I have a good amount of old and new iPods. Although to start the podcast I would like a co-host and was wondering if any one would be interested? If you want to be a co-host it would be preferable if you had a lot of experience with iPods and/or have a collection.

If you are interested send me an email to: drewsmacintosh@gmail.com

A quick Update!

Just wanted to let everyone know I'm still here! Things have been a little busy on my end, I know it's been a little while since I last posted.



I got the Apple IIe that I was planning on. It's a little dirty after many years of storage in a garage, so I'm going to have to put some elbow grease into cleaning it up. I'm also not sure where I'm going to put it! lol!! Currently the TAM is just setting on my dinning table, and if you've seen the pictures of my desk since I got the 22"… Continue
