Got iBook!

without comments

Well, after all the crap that I went through with FedEx losing my previous iBook, I finally have my hands on one now 🙂 I’m typing this post in terminal on my brand spanking 12″ iBook, and so far it rocks.

I’ve noticed that the keys are really easy to hit twice, so that will take a little getting used to, but that’s fine. There are some weird things as well – like not being able to hit Return in Finder to open a folder or start an application… or am I missing something somewhere? Anyway. It’s going to be a serious learning experience!

Apple iBook G4… Maybe

without comments

Apple

So I folded – I bought a Spacintosh. I’ve ordered a 12″ iBook G4, 768 Mb RAM, 80Gb HDD, Airport, Bluetooth – should be pretty sweet. I got a little carried away and also bought an AirTunes Express, and a subscription to .Mac.

Since it’s new toys, and I like to get my new toys quickly, I paid the extra $20 to get it sent 2-3 days by FedEx.

That was on the 6th of December. Note the date of this post. I still don’t have my iBook.

I have the .Mac CD – which is useless without the iBook. I ordered the AirTunes separately, so I’m not expecting that yet, but the iBook should definitely be here. According to FedEx’s tracking, it should have been here 2 days ago. It’s been (allegedly) sitting in Honolulu since 8:30pm on the 7th! You know what this means. It’s been stolen.

FedEx haven’t talked to me much yet, but I’m hoping to get this sorted out. Somehow or other, paid for by someone other than me (this time), I’m getting that iBook, and it had better be soon. I want it before I go on a ’round the world trip (starting early December), so they’d better get themselves sorted out pretty quickly.

When I get it, I’m looking forward to playing with the WiFi access on it, and in particular trying out AirTunes.
