An old and “dead” white MacBook that I bought as “junk” last year got a second shot at life when one of my geek comrades installed Ubuntu on it a few weeks ago.
And the best part is, it feels a lot like OS X.
PRESENTING… (drumroll)… the PEAR!
IT TOOK me a while to figure out what was wrong with the supposed MacBook on Carly’s lap in the photo.
I was literally rolling on the floor laughing when it finally dawned on me that the logo on her “MacBook”Â isn’t that of a bitten apple. So I guess that is not a MacBook after all.

EVERYBODY can probably relate to the difficulty in having to e-mail a signed letter.
I don’t know about you but these are the steps I usually do when I need to e-mail a copy of a letter (or any document for that matter) that requires my signature scribbled onto it:

It is catchy, alright, and it sounds very funny, too. â€ The only problem is, for most people it is too close to reality for comfort. â€ And I know a lot of these people — young and not so young urban professionals and businessmen and women who are neck-deep in their high tech gizmos and gadgetry.

I LOVE ANYTHING APPLE! â€ Apple Juice, Apple Pie, Apple-flavored candy, Green Apple, Red Apple, California Apple, Fuji Apple, and so on and so forth.
