- Skepticism is the antiseptic of the mind.
- Remember why we debate. We have nothing to lose but the errors we hold. Who but a stubborn fool would hold to errors once they have been exposed?

Eventually I moved up to a real Mac, the classic. The original standup B&W monitor 32MB Mac. With that platform came the real workhorse of Mac databases, "FileMaker", a Mac user's dream come true, perhaps still the most used database on the Mac today. We run our entire oil & gas exploration company on that DB.
Over the years, I think we bought every new style of Mac that Apple introduced and even purchased the first premium video editing package for the Power Mac known as "Media 100", an outstanding software package that was a viable competitor to the then industry standard "Avid Studio". Of course, it wasn't long after the introduction of Media 100, that the world began its migration to non-linear editing and Apple, not willing to be left out of that exploding market, acquired a little video editing package of its own and named it "Final Cut", which soon became the first truly affordable, very powerful, video editing studio for the masses. I use it whenever I need to create a video segment.
I now use several iMacs from 20" to 27" and I couldn't be more satisfied with their ease of use and reliability. I've owned a couple of PCs but they just can't win me over.
And now... The iPad, the personal digital assistant that every Apple competitor wants to imitate, but falls short. I take my iPad everywhere, it holds thousands of our leases, our GEO maps, and our entire database on FileMaker Go, the FMPRO solution for the iPad. And now, with the introduction of the Alesis IO iPad Dock a little over a year ago, those who are musicians, including myself, have at our fingertips the most portable recording studio the world has ever seen. In fact, I recently attended a concert by the California Guitar Trio and they were using the new Digitech IPB 10 effects pedal which has a slot for iPad insertion to control a world of multiple stombox effects. You had to hear it to believe it!
The world will miss Steve Jobs and his pursuit of perfection.
Happy computing to all of you happy Mac Users!!! Think different.
