Weekend open thread: ThemeParkInsider HQ switches to Mac
Written by Robert Niles
Well, my four-year-old PC finally quit this week -- dropping USB ports, then finally refusing to boot even in safe mode. (Yes, I had the whole firewall/anti-virus/Spybot/AdAware protection system in place.) I'd been meaning for months to buy a Mac for testing and video editing, and well, now I am typing this on my new MacBook Pro.Tweet
The good news is that the site looks great in Safari. (In fact the whole darn Web looks better!) Setting up a Web connection (my biggest fear in switching to Mac) was ridiculously easy and I'm basically over the moon with the switch. I'm also looking forward to having better, simpler video editing tools to use, meaning you should look forward to monthly video features, reported from the parks, on the site -- starting within the next month or two.
Anything I ought to be on the lookout for, Mac veterans out there? Any video features you'd like to see me report for the site? Anything else on your mind? It's the weekend -- talk amongst yourselves!
