I Love Apple

I got a MacBook for Christmas last year, and I absolutely love it!  It is by far the easiest computer I have ever used to download pictures, create projects, and create videos.  There are so many things I can do with it...and I'm not a computer person.  Then last week Micah and I got iPhones.  We have both been mesmerized with them!  There are so many things we can do with them, including take pictures and download them to our computer...something we couldn't do with our old phones.  You can also download all sorts of apps onto them.  I wish I had this when I was teaching, because there are tons of educational games for kids you can download onto the phone, and I could've definitely used playtime on my phone as a reward for my kids.  Many of the games work with iPods, also, but most need an iPod touch.  You can find all these apps in the iTunes store...something for all you teachers to check into.  So I've become a big fan of Apple.  I do miss some PC things, like right-clicking, but all in all, I don't think I will ever buy a PC again!

Came across your blog. You know how to do "right-clicking" on your MacBook, right? You can activate it by going to SYSTEM PREFERENCES > KEYBOARD & MOUSE PREFERENCES > then check the box next to "activate secondary clicking with double-tap". It does wonders. Then, if you don't have it activated already, you can activate the single-tap for a regular click. Just thought I'd throw that in there for ya. From one Mac user to another!
