I’ve come a long way since yesterday when I was excited like a virgin on her wedding night about Steve Jobs’ coming into my technological bedroom and breaking me off with the iPad. Yeah, it’s revolutionary, but really is it? He’s essentially selling people an iPhone on steroids. No groundbreaking new technology from the house of Apple, just a copy and paste of iPhone technology placed in a bigger package. Now, don’t get me wrong, when I see all the pretty pictures and when I visit the Apple store to see it in person, I will go back to my wedding night jitters. But for now, this is the position I’ll take on the iPad:

Anxiously Awaiting Apple Announcement

I admit it, I am totally a Steve Jobs’ girl and I’m proud to join the ranks of millions of Apple freaks who will be glued to their monitors and televisions starting at 12:30 today to hear Jobs’ announce his latest messiah machine, the Apple iPad otherwise known as the Apple tablet. I don’t know that iPad is the official name, but as a woman, I like the thought of it being called an iPad. I think I’m more excited about this announcement than I am tonight’s State of the Union Address. Mostly because I know this will make me happy, even while it makes me feel inferior.

So join me and millions of others as we watch what is sure to be the best news we’ve heard since the 2010 started.

Watch Apple event live…

Where Have I Been?

It’s been too long that I have been away from you and I am sorry. It wasn’t a planned hiatus but it turns out my dearest McAllister had to go through some upgrades before he was fit for use again. He is now back and better than ever and I hope that you will say the same for me and my discourse here. I have much to tell you, so let’s get to it. But first, I wanted to share with you this wonderful MAC v PC video. Can you guess which side of the debate I am on?

God Bless Steve Jobs

He did it again. He made another contraption for all of us mortals to spend money we don’t have on.

This time around it is called the iPod Touch and it resembles an iPhone–but clearly you can’t talk to anyone on it. But what you can do is touch your way through your music library, pictures and videos. The iPod Touch also has WiFi so that you can surf the internet whenever you roll up on a Starbucks. Steve’s bringing sexy back and it’s sexier than ever. So sexy…
