so i just upgraded both of my computers to leopard and i must say… i’m impressed. more-so than i even expected to be. i was having some weird issues with my g5 tower before.. so i decided to do a “clean install” and erase everything on the computer when i installed the new OS. i have a backup of all my files elsewhere, so i figured this would be easy. the only thing that would take a while would be re-installing all my programs… but i figured that would be an easy task to do this weekend (tedious, but easy) so i install leopard on my laptop.. and that takes around an hour and a half. so when i left my g5 tower install overnight while i was sleeping. then today i start installing my programs…. and i think “hey.. i have all these programs already on my laptop.. i wonder if i can just drag them over the network” so it try it. and sure enough. it works. crazy! and then i’m playing around with the syncing on both my macs… and suddenly all my settings are remembered. wow. i was thinking that the re-setup of this machine would be a good day and half project… but apple and all their crazy perfectionism made my life insanely easy. so now i can get work done instead of installing and setting things up. oh. and this “spaces” thing is stinkin’ incredible! i remember there was a program that came out years ago that did a very similar thing (something like ‘multiple desktops’) .. but it slowed down my machine so much that i ended up uninstalling it after only a week of using it. spaces is SO nice.. and then there’s the “share screen” feature that they took from the remote desktop app. (where you can take over another computer’s screen if they are on the same network and you have the username and password for that computer) gosh. i really haven’t found anything that apple forgot!

off to work in imovie (and don’t get me started on how cool and easy that program is to use.. that’s a whole other blog entry. -) )

dear apple, inc.

first off, thanks for all your great products. i seem to have this obsession with collecting them. -)

secondly, thanks for having discussion boards on your support website. otherwise i would have not realized that the 1.1.1 software update for my iphone was from a “bad batch” and was causing my phone to 1) overheat and 2) have an exponentially worse battery life than before.

third. please, please, PLEASE have future releases of the iphone software support:

  • caller/contact groups (like in address book), which can be set to a certain ringtone.
  • voice activated calling (my bluetooth headset is collecting dust)
  • allow my phone to learn my email address and stop DEactivating my “R” key when i try to type “thisroad” (thistoad.org is not my email address please have my phone stop making me type that and then go back and correct it. thanks)
  • bluetooth file transfer
  • and please allow me to turn off that annoying “would you like to delete this video to conserve space” message after i watch any video on my iphone…

sincerely,
-tracy
