Posting On An Apple

Well folks, I never thought I’d be typing these (next) words, but I am writing today’s article on a Mac. An “iMac” to be exact.

apple-imacAnd the first thing I have to say is, the mouse is okay, but sheeze, this keyboard sucks. Um, I meant, “is really going to take some getting used to”.

And using Apple “apps” is going to take some getting used to as well. For instance, I had a heck of a time finding how to change the size of this JPEG in iPhoto. (Export??!! Really??)

And Safari doesn’t handle the WordPress WYSIWYG editor quite the same as my Windows machines do.

And the “Command” key (the “Apple key”) is in the wrong place. (Same functions as Ctrl on my PC’s.)

Yes. Quite a bit to learn…

But it isn’t as “different” as one might think. Most things are very much the same.

Connecting my webmails to the Apple Mail program was not difficult, and adding my Google Calender to iCal was rather painless, and it’s working (“sync”-ing) fine.

I installed Avast! for Mac on it yesterday, and like it so far. (And it’s free.)

I’ll report more as it happens.
