Incredibleness of the iPad

Today I’ve loaded about 90 photos from our forthcoming book on tiny houses on to the iPad. Do they look good! I’ll be showing these to people at the BEA (Book Expo America) convention next week in NYC.

You have to handle an iPad to realize its intuitive ease of use and elegance.

This is a quick shot of the iPad taken with my pocket camera just now. Depicted is a sauna in British Columbia,Canada.

The First MacIntosh

Just ran across this again. No clue as to where it’s from. Looks like it’s signed “MS.”

This is exactly what happened when we got our first Mac in the late ’80s. Michael Rafferty, who was working for Shelter then, started doing everything on the Mac, while I was still using my Adler portable typewriter, and laying out pages with X-Actos and glue. Took me years to migrate over…

(Actually I still do initial layout manually.)

Got New 13" MacBook Pro

Boy, do I love it!

My old one was: 15″ MacBook Pro (2006 version)/2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor/1GB RAM/160GB SATA Hard Drive/Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger).

The new one is: 13″ MacBook Pro (Unibody; mid-2009 version)/2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor (different generation of processor)/4GB RAM/500GB SATA Hard Drive/Mac OS X 10.6.2 (Snow Leopard)

The keyboard is the same size as on the 15″ and it’s a pound lighter, and is it snappy! Apple continually improves things. The keyboard is backlit, v. big improvement; screen is brighter; it’s faster; don’t have to push button to open it…
