'round the bend
Clearly, I'm already obsessed and a convert. I had dreams all night about the Macworld Expo and the amazing things Steve Jobs announced for a new line of Macbook Pros. I had dreams about Aperture's integration into strange applications that don't exist and the publishing features. I even had dreams about the 6 pound terabyte external hard drive I found in the online Apple Store. Yeah, and even about making a sleeve for it.... (so glad there's a sewing machine in the house)

I think I may be a little excited to be buying my Macbook today. I have a reminder on my Outlook calendar to order after the Keynote speech (11 to 1 central time) to ensure I get what ever upgrades will be released.

I'm such a dork.
(a mad stylish dork)

PS: Trounced my latest cert test. Missed one question. One more to go on Thursday.

I did the same thing. Cats, camera, computer.

The rumor mills are tantalizing. The new Macbook Pro may have Intel's new quad core processors and 802.11n wireless capability. Very sexy. :)

DEFINITELY . . although those quad core processors run VERY hot . . that is one thing i don't like about them . . sitting with that thing will heat up your office/room/burn your thighs, etc!

I imagine heat will be less a concern. no operating system yet is capable of using the extra cores yet. However, I'm betting Leopard will now. And hopefully they've fixed all the overheating problems for the Macbooks by now. :)

What time is the online webcast for Macworld Expo?

It's concurrent I believe. So it should start around 11. No idea how to watch it.

Macrumors.com is doing a near-real time blog and phlog of the Keynote.

What does a sowing machine look like? :)

I was conflicted. Rowing or sewing. Perhaps a combination? That would take some extreme coordination!

Wow. I'm dumb.

You were just distracted by the shiny technology.
