Day of the Mac #1

So… to finish this project I’ve spent the past several months programming, I need a mac with Xcode…  For those of you who don’t know me, I have railed against macs.  They’re overpriced, they don’t give you the low-level access I enjoy, they tend to have this “holier than thou” aura about their promotions…  I can’t stand it when people talk about only serious content creators use Mac.  Okay, in the day of Myst, Apple was the way to go, but that was 1992 when graphics cards were limited.  Today, you get wayyyy more bang for your buck on a PC.  Nevertheless, yesterday, ca 10 AM, I found myself in an Apple store.

An hour later, as I walked to my apartment with a MacBook box under arm, I felt dirty.  I felt like all these people were looking at me, and I wanted to turn to them say, “Hey, I’m not a Mac person” (with a nervous laugh).  “I just had to get one of these things so I could use this piece of software which only runs on Mac.”

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I need to start forming a habit of updating this blog at least every other day.  :)

The past few days, I’ve been occupied editing footage my brother and I took for our next project, as well as watching the Olympics.  I’m also kicking around some ideas for a series of webcams…

Anyway.  I wanted to jot something quick down.  Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been pushed back until next summer.  As a fan of the films, and the books, I thought I’d put up a link to the trailer from Apple’s Quicktime site.  Looks like it will be great when it comes around.
