“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Apple VS. PC
Sunday, May 24, 2009

I've long been a PC person just because that's what I've always used. Most of my author friends have Apples and love them and have wondered why I stick with a PC. I've researched them, and I decided that the Apple makes sense for someone who does more with a computer than use it for word-processing and email. They're great with graphics ... and perfect if you want to make movies ... but it just doesn't make sense to spend more money for something just because it looks SO COOL.

And the Apple products, admittedly, are beautiful. But here's what ticks me off about Apple users: THEY WON'T ADMIT THAT THEY'VE BEEN SEDUCED BY GOOD LOOKS. I would hazard to guess that 80-percent of Apple buyers choose them because they're beautiful. And what's wrong with that? Nothing. But admit it, people.

So we finally bought a MacBook Pro, and only because it has that little nifty camera feature that lets a dad see his daughter real-time while talking to her, Apple-to-Apple. (Haley graduates next month from high school, and this stay-at-home dad is freaking out).

So I've had plenty of time to play with my Apple. And I have this to say: Big deal.

Viva la similarity!

The difference isn't that huge, really...more like comparing a Fiji apple with a Red Delicious rather than comparing a Democrat with a Republican.

Oh but it sure is nice to look at!

P.S. My new novel, "Man of the House," is the featured novel all week long at DearReader.com. Be sure to check it out. I'll also be answering readers' questions.
Again, it's DearReader.com

Enjoy this little difference: lack of spam, worms, viruses and all those horrors fellow PC emailers warn you about, because a significant majority of them are spread through (you guessed it...) PCs!

Have you ever considered listing your book signings on this blog?

Nope. In the old days that was true, but I.T. people are saying it's no longer the case...And with the free McAfee anti-virus suite that comes with comcast....no worries.

Now, that's NOT a challenge, hackers!
