The Big Switch Begins

I love computers. Apple is putting the excitement and fun back in computing for me with the MacBook Pro, iPhone, and iPod. I plan on using all of those devices to create elearning and/or delivery elearning in the next 30 days. My journey is just begining, and it started in Shanghai (or at least that’s where my MacBook Pro started with FedEx).Fedex tracking via
(Visualization of package tracking via, accessed via the cool Firefox/Thunderbird extension that works with DHL, Fedex, UPS and US Postal Service tracking numbers.)

The next few hours will be some get (re)acquainted time for me and Mac– it’s been 11 years since I stopped daily use of a Mac. I’ll post some entries here about my preparations and experiences switching from my ThinkPad T43p with Win XP to MacBook Pro and OS X.

Oh yes, one more thing. I won’t be able to install much software tomorrow, I have to be in line somewhere for something– it might be here or here.

Where are you going to be Friday at 6pm? Maybe these links will help:
