Re: Media centre for Escape

Add us to the list of happy MacBook users. We've each got one and often take one with us on the road. Definitely does everything we need.

Coincidentally, my father-in-law has an iPad and loves it but he doesn't use it as a replacement for his laptop. It's more of a toy for him right now.

I too am interested to see how the iPad evolves as they release new versions down the road. I do have to say that the screen resolution is impressive. Maybe one day...

Re: Media centre for Escape

When the iPad first came out we did a story on a local tech wiz and of course he had one. I mentioned the lack of USB and he directed me to a product that for only $260 serves some function I don't understand that serves as a USB. I think it was a personal localized Wi-Fi. Like I'm going to spend $260 for a USB port that should have been there in the first place.

I'll be going with the MacBook ( maybe Pro, maybe not ), but I have no plans to replace the company cell phone. Nobody calls me anyway.

And, to keep myself busy, I am forming S.P.S.

Save the Pixels Society.

The mission statement is not fully formed, but in essence is to stop people from taking pictures and video and to simply enjoy the experience of being there.

Sign me up. I have watched people so engrossed with picture taking at incredibly beautiful places that I think that they haven't really seen anything other than thru a view finder.

Re: Media centre for Escape

Interesting the so many of us Escape owners are Mac users too. I guess we appreciate quality products! And no I am NOT trying to start one of those silly Mac v. PC wars.

Glenn:

I see taking pictures as being part of "being there", as long as there is some balance. How else will you be able to capture a fleeting image? How else can you share a visual experience with others? I see the growth of digital photography and the sharing of images on internet to be a sign of more and more people appreciating beauty rather than a scourge that needs to be stamped out.

You are ending a significant part of your life devoted to photography. Why not explore new horizons and take just the pictures you want to take? Why not share your visual experiences and skill with your fans and bring joy to the world?

Re: Media centre for Escape

I think I need at least six months off first.
