~Ohhs and ahhs. One random "I really like it's screen." Sounds of camera shutters.~
The Sony Vaio in it natural office enviroment has no true preditors, however the Apple Mac uses trickery and showmanship to give a false impression of it's superiority.

According to the Daily Mail, Emily Maitlis's wardrobe caused massive outrage...
'I learned more about Emily Maitlis's wardrobe than Facebook': Outraged viewers complain over BBC star's numerous costume changes during documentary
Neighbours on channel 5 is one big Apple ad. Every phone and computer is clearly apple.
It's not me that watches it, honest. Daughter is addicted!

I dumped my Windows laptop for an Apple Mac last month
Errrmmmm.......don't quite know how to say this but,......
I've had a 5 year old Mac Mini at home for the last month or two, and it has been so easy and trouble free to install anything I've needed. Admittedly, I haven't got right into it like I have with my pc, in finding 'value-added' or 'shiny' software e.g. the mail program is pretty basic to say the least, but device connection has been a complete doddle, so has connecting it to my home lan, even plugging my Panasonic camcorder into it produced immediate working results. Installing software is so much easier (for a novice/non-expert) than on a Windows box....OpenOffice, Divx Player, required codecs etc, the only problems I've had seem to be previously encountered and much discussed on various forums, so I don't think they're down to me. And as a media-player it really whips the Llama's Ass, as they say. I have it plugged into my TV, the resolution set itself correctly without any intervention from me.......it was all so E-A-S-Y.
Some minor annoyances with stuff that hasn't been ported over to Mac, like mIRC for example. I haven't tried it yet, but there's a Shoutcast version for Mac, which is encouraging and, I daresay, challenging.
In short, I'm impressed. I'm not sure it's capable of running OSX Lion, but if it is, I'm sure I'd shell out for it, even though I'd have to go to Snow Leopard and then Lion. I know someone in the States who's just gone completely Apple......Mac Mini, iPhone, iPad, iCloud...... she's delighted with it all and I can understand the attraction.
Am I turning into a Fan Boy? Am I getting old and just want a quiet life? Or am I.........Evolving?
And I don't have YouTube, so I guess neither of us will ever know the full story.
I'm guessing it's not that funny, anyway.
If BBC are supposed to be impartial how can they plug Facebook and Twitter on every TV show? , there are alternative social networks available.
