    I've changed teams... #mac

    Well, it's taken well over a decade but as of yesterday I am officially a Mac user. I am now the proud owner of a Macbook Air and I'm slowly finding my way around. I concede that it is pretty frustrating not just being able to intuitively find things.

    So Mac users, what are your top tips? What apps do you find useful? Help me out here...

    I tried the same thing but chickened out and deleted my post just before the Edit button disappeared

    I thought it's probably not a good idea to post fluff in the Administrator's thread

    Holy hell, when did I get this reputation for having no sense of humour? You clearly don't follow me on Twitter.

    I think I'll take care of this by banning you both, as soon as I can figure out how.

    You think a measly desk and cabinet can stop the new iHAWK?

    I just realize how much you're into twitter, Hawk... that "#mac" makes me think that you thought you were tweeting instead of writing in SP

    A couple of days ago I accidentally tweeted a text meant for my brother! Luckily it was fairly generic.

    Oh? You mean my title was ambiguous? Gosh, I didn't mean it like that.

    That's too dangerous to even be funny. There are things that you just don't want to know...

    I can't deny the Apple make very attractive hardware, and their OS is very minimalistic and clean which I love. The reason I don't like the Apple is due to the trendy community and prices, and single mouse button. Otherwise I might actually consider getting one someday.

    NEVERTHELESS, this post is about you -- so I hope you have a good transition, please update everyone in a few months on how things have changed and how you feel overall about it I'd really like to know
