Still thinking of buying an iPad?

Go Get It Today!

I’ve hesitated a lot before buying my iPad( I don’t like to rush into buying new devices until I make sure they’re really worth it), but I believe I was mistaken, I should have got it from the beginning.

It’s a really amazing device, great screen, very suitable size, good battery life and wonderful apps you can get for it.

I was concerned that it might not work well for me as I have a PC not a Mac but that proved not to be a problem at all.

My first impressions on a Mac

After two years of working with Photoshop CS3, I decided it was time to move forward and take a course on the newly released Photoshop CS5, so I looked for a good training center and I started two days ago.

The thing that made me happy was that they taught on Mac computers, which was my first interaction with a Mac.

I’ve always loved the funny commercials Mac vs. PC, and they always made me wonder, is it really better?
