So after hours of failure in getting OS X to run on my Asus EEE 1000HE, I gave up and went and picked up this sexy little number – the Lenovo S10 netbook.  Although it doesn’t have that massive 9.5 hour battery of the 1000HE, it is way lighter, thinner, and overall sexier.  Plus it’s proven to work with OS X.  So here goes nothin’

Apple’s New NYC Flagship Store

7 12 2007

In a city where your iPod is your car stereo, you had to know that 2 Apple stores weren’t going to be enough. Say hello to the newest edition, opening today on W 14th in the Meatpacking district. The largest store in the city (and second largest in the US), this will be the new hub of Apple operations on the East coast. The outside of the store looks exactly like the SoHo store, with no branding besides an Apple logo hanging from a lamp post.

The inside of the store is 3 stories and 35 feet high and occupied by the most complex glass staircase ever made. Outfitted with the normal Apple interior decorations, there are reasons to visit even if you’re not in the market for a new Mac Book Pro. For the first time in any of their stores, Apple will be offering free Pro workshops. If you’ve been meaning to learn how to use all those icons that come by default on your dock, get your ass to the meatpacking district.
