TideLog Archive for September, 2006

Hello readers,

I know my blog’s a mess, i still have articles regarding Ryoko to put up yet, it will all get sorted, but in the meantime….

A new Apple store has opened in Manchester, UK, and myself and my new best friend Greg were there for the official opening. It’s another leap forward for Apple, another shop, another wad of cash!

We’ve recieved Apple t-shirts (i’ll put a pic of me wearing mine up soon). I’m actually considering buying an Apple machine, i’ve been interested in Mac OS since Kassie has been giving me lessons on using it, and after she recently got her new Mac Mini, i was in love, in fact, i’m typing this on one now, in the new store! Awwww!

You all knew that “Awww!” was coming, didn’t you?!? Kassie did, it’s my default reaction to all cute things Apple!

Apple product = “Awwww!”

If i do buy an apple machine, it’ll probably be a Mac Mini, as they’re all cute and small, but Kassie’s 30″ Cinema Display isn’t! I’ll still keep my Windows testbeds, and my Windows XP Tiny A440 laptop, as i’m still not 100% MacOS proof yet, i still need to learn my way round it.

Anyhow,pictures of the new Apple “Awwww!” store coming soon….plus a new organised TideLog!
