Get It Together!

Well I've been meditating a lot lately on the subject of total synchronization. In other words, like Dyson vaccuums, I wish everything would just WORK. It seems constantly ridiculous to me that it takes twenty sweaty minutes to set up the dvd player, instead of just a wireless install like you would on a wireless printer. Why not have the TV remotely find any devices nearby and sync with them, in that way playing the dvd without all the unneccessary cords.

Something else that would make everything just work properly would be internet clouds. I know some cities are doing it, but why not have one fee every month, for your phone, house internet, laptop internet and have a key to the city so to speak, a password that allows you to access internet from anywhere all over the city grid.

On that same note: we were traveling around Toronto yesterday, and kept continually having to feed the meter at every stop. Again, why not an option for a parking day pass? Anywhere in the city, just stick it on your dashboard and it says you can park anywhere there's a free space. Or better yet, for people who run around doing errands downtown maybe they should have an option for monthly parking.

Technology is apparently so powerful, and yet we can't seem to get over this little hump that is connection, syncing. It is so key: we can do it on our cell phones, but not on our powerful laptops? That means we sometimes leave our computers at home or search desperately for a connection port. Why not leave that stress behind and give us the option for connection!

And at the same time: why not keep working on that wireless power charging thing. That would be awesome.

Macbook Pro

Something keeping me happy recently: my brand new Macbook Pro. 13 inches of beautiful, glossy glassy crystal clear screen, a trackpad so smooth its ridiculous, a keyboard that feels delicious on my fingers and lights up my world, smooth finish, amazing technology, quick on all programs and startup. It’s just one little box of wonderful.

Here’s what I love:

1. The Screen: as I mentioned, it is a gorgeous display, made of glass and super clear and detailed. It’s sharp.

2. The Technology: Mac is wonderful, and I already knew this. But it’s something special to be able to open your computer and have it start up in one minute with your preferences locked in, to have your computer so easy to use and set up and open right out of the box as beautiful as ever. I love being able to personalize my computer 100%. I’ve had it one day and it’s almost exactly as I want it. Everything is so easy to establish. Plus it’s super quick. Definitely a powerful machine.

3. The Keyboard: bouncy, yummy on the fingers, delicious. They’re not kidding when they say on the website that your fingers will like typing on it. No problems yet with this full keyboard, even with a keyboard cover on it it types beautifully and I forget about the cover entirely. I do think the backlight comes on a little bit quickly when not needed, but you can turn it down or off whenever you want.

4. The Gorgeous: the little aspects of the computer that make it so gorgeous. For example, being the administrator and downloading whatsoever I love, uber quick downloads, lightening fast everything, easyness of setting up folders, copying pictures, starting up and using programs, picking and choosing, personalizing the trackpad to change from actually clicking the trackpad to tapping instead..everything is gorgeous.

Originally, I had intended to talk about what I dislike..but there’s not much and I couldn’t be bothered. The only problems I’ve had are with my home wireless internet connection and my Windows Home software that I installed. Also I couldn’t register my AppleCare yesterday, but I’m going to try again today.

All in all: I could not be happier. It is so beautiful, I am in love. I love the mobility, the beauty of the machine, everything. It is lovely. :)
