Handy things to know
The Future is MAC
On April 8, 2014, Microsoft will no longer support your Windows XP machine. No more security patches. No more updates. Already, software companies have stopped offering products that run on XP. Your choice is: "Upgrade to Windows7"..... Not a choice at all.
But you do have a choice. When you upgrade from XP, choose MAC instead. Take the step. It will be the best computer investment you've ever made. The learning curve for MAC is easier than moving from WinXP to Win7. It's easier than moving from Office 2003 to Office 2010.
Being from the pencil and paper generation, I have been reluctant to accept the fact that the life of a Windows computer is determined by Microsoft, and not by how long we can keep our machines running. The sad truth is, if you are using Windows, your return on investment will always end, when Microsoft says it ends.
But Microsoft's reign as "computer king" is quickly ending. Microsoft will soon be out of the business of building operating systems, and will become just another software company writing apps that run on MACs.
The future is MAC. Your smart phone, that's a MAC. All the handy little apps you use, they run on the MAC platform. Yes, the apps that run on your phone will also run on your MAC computer. As the owner of a website company, I have watched the internet change from a web built for Microsoft's Internet Explorer, to a web built for the MAC.
The Future is MAC, Now is the time to make the switch.
