What I Love Today

Monday, August 31, 2015

My big news is that I got as new computer over the weekend. I could not be more excited and am kicking myself for all the frustration and wasted time using a slow old one for so many months. I should have bitten the billet and done it sooner. My old one, an Apple iMac desktop, was amazing when new (6 years ago), but on its very last legs recently. I bought the same thing again and am so impressed. It has one cord - you plug it in and you're done. The setup (even the dreaded printer) was maybe 5 minutes and was SO easy. This is in stark contrast to our experience with my son's Window's laptop, which has been a complete nightmare and total waste of money. I know Apple is a bit more, but I can't see why anyone would risk it on anything else. My first one would still be going if the programs hadn't gotten so much bigger - the computer was great but the software, etc., is too big now for a lower processor (or that is my basic understanding). Anyway, something to consider if you are buying a new computer any time soon! I'm a huge Apple fan and will never, ever go back.

I hope you all had good weekends. School starts here tomorrow, so we are busy getting ready. Good luck to all of your students starting up again! See you tomorrow.

THIS. House.

THIS is what I love. It's the Tuxedo Park home of Michael Bruno, the founder of First Dibs.


It's something else, right?
