Mac-time

I have done something I swore I would never do.

I bought a MacBook.

Some of the things I’m doing for work now would be better done on a Mac – as much as I hate to admit it. But with new jobs come new responsibilities and chances to learn new skills, so I’ve opened myself up again to another new skill.

I last used a Mac in the nineties when I was still teaching. Macs were supposed to be the salvation of education with awesome educational programs and ease of use. Instead, I found them to be a hindrance with limited ability to do much of anything, so I became a vehement anti-Apple person.

I’m officially eating crow to some extent. I still find the Mac much more difficult to use than my Dell. I have to go through more steps to open and close a program, but I’m learning all that I have to do. So far it also seems like I have to have more windows open at a time to do what I want to do.

I’m sure I’ll have more to say in the future – but for the time being, I have to figure out how to read the really small type on the screen (I have learned how to make it larger) but it still seems smaller.
