Glenn Reynolds joins the cult of the iPod.
Now, if Apple were smart, they’d send him a nice iBook or PowerBook and really convert him to the dark side. Once you get used to the ease of use, simplicity, and power of the iPod, you start to appreciate the whole Apple design élan.
After two months with my iBook, it’s rapidly become my favorite machine to work on, despite the small screen size. The size and weight make it much more simple to lug around to the local coffee shop or through the airport, and the built-in wireless has had no problems connecting to anything. In fact, my iBook has been the most trouble-free machine I’ve owned, including machines I’ve custom built for myself. There’s just something about the way the iBook is designed that makes it just work. Like any OS, there are some quirks to get used to and some minor annoyances, but all in all, owning a Mac is a much more pleasant experience than owning a PC.
Let the assimilation begin!
