Ohhhh…kayyyyyy…. So I went out and dropped an abhorrent amount of money on a fancy new computer, and no, we will NOT be replastering the pool this fall. But is it ever cool.
And yes, it is “just working.” Powered it up, signed into iCloud, and voilà! Away it went! The email system just works. Signed into BigScoots on Safari: just works. It comes with Pages…and lookit here: a document I experimented with in some long-ago version of Pages is right here in iCloud. I’d forgotten about it. Fancy that…
Wonder Apple-Dude, who resides on the East Coast, was probably sitting at the dinner table by the time I walked in the door. Shortly thereafter a friend showed up, and she hung around for awhile…this was good. He had said he would help me transfer data from Time Machine or the old computer — for free, not for the $100 Apple now charges for the service. So it’ll be tomorrow before all the loot is moved into this machine.
It has Siri! Even though I have a moral objection to letting a computer company know where I am at all times, Siri is indeed soooo Kewl that it simply MUST be had.
At the Apple Store, I whinged about the Office situation, and the guy said they sell the free-standing version of Office 2016, and they had it running right there on their display models…check it out!
OMG! The thing has the kind of modified ribbon/drop-down format that WonderAccountant’s PC is running, only she had to hire a PC Dude to make that happen in Wyrd for Windows. DAAAYUUMMMM!
Beside myself with joy.
Welp, we’ll find out if that remains the case after I get all the data from one of the other computers loaded into the thing. But just now things are lookin’ good.
