MacBook-AirWell, I’m just glad that I can finally sit down with a cup of coffee and write in my blog.  It takes a little thinking to come up with some fun topics for you all to read about! I do enjoy this time, and I hope you enjoy reading some of my thoughts, even if they come out a bit randomly sometimes.

I was thinking back to when I first met my husband.  We were getting to know each other a little bit, and I have to admit that I was at first a little impatient with his preoccupation with his gadgets.  I just had your basic clam-shell (or whatever they call them!) phones, but he had an iPhone.  I was a little curious about it, but didn’t get a good look at it for awhile.  Then after we’d gone out a few months, I had to answer it for him when he was driving.  That was the beginning of my love affair with the iPhone!  After we arrived where we were going, I made him show me what some of the little icons on the iPhone were for  – “apps” I guess I should call them.  There are so many things you can do with an iPhone, it’s unbelievable.

An iPhone isn’t just a phone, its my lifeline to the digital  Seriously, I stream music from the Internet, text message my girlfriends, send pictures, or watch a video.  But, speaking of videos, they’re even better to watch on my MacBook Air.  Have you seen those?  I had an old MacBook, but it was really heavy.  The MacBook Air is so much lighter to carry.

I hadn’t really planned on getting the MacBook Air, but late last year (just around Christmas time) the old MacBook broke.  Wow – not fun.  I was really lucky I didn’t lose all of my data.  Like I said, it was Christmas time, so I had lists of things to do on there, addresses, just a lot of stuff I needed.  My husband had thought ahead and had a “back up” plan just in such a case.  We have this thing that he calls the Time Machine – some kind of box that lives in his office and which apparently helped us get all of my old photos and files onto my new MacBook Air I told you all about.

So, I have my MacBook Air now (with the Time Machine backups), Google Calendars (shared with my friends, so I always know what’s going on), as well as my wonderful iPhone too.  If I had to name one more techie gadget which I really couldn’t live I would say our Apple TV.  It’s like a little box that we have plugged into our TV and allows us to watch Netflix and get our favourite TV shows by subscription.  It’s really great.  All these things make my life so much easier and fun.
