It just works

At least that should be the motto of Apple. Yes, their products are way more expensive than others in the same "class," but the time I've-a-wasted on non-apple products costs me so much more in the end.

My latest problem was getting my GPS device to communicate with some Windows software. After a couple hours trying to debug my USB-to-Serial adapter with no luck, I finally just plugged it into my iMac, downloaded SimpleGPS and Voila! It worked out of the box. Go figure.

I'm in the market for a new laptop, and looks like that new MacBook Pro moved its way to the top of the list despite the price. Hopefully my friends in Redmond have some those Windows compatibility issues in Vista.
