My wife can no longer be referred to as a ‘MacWidow’…

UrbanDictionary.com defines a MacWidow as:

This is what you call the wife of an Apple Macintosh user. He ends up spending much more time on his Mac than with her!

Well, we recently gave away our PC to some friends so I have been keeping my now slightly ageing powerbook at home. Since then Annie has been getting into using it more and more, once she realised that you could do a lot more in GarageBand than just loop a few sounds together she’s been producing quite a lot of songs with it.

Now, the final evidence that Annie’s no longer a ‘MacWidow’ is that she went to an Apple Seminar called ‘Guitarists and the Mac‘. She came home all excited telling me that she found out:

“How the Mac and Apple?s audio creation software along with some amazing third-party products gives you access to thousands of amplifier emulations and pro-quality effects for rehearsals, studio and stage…”

and also:

“How recent developments in guitar technology turn your favourite axe into a virtual orchestra by giving you access to thousands of sampled sounds, virtual instruments and synthesizers…”

Mmm, if you ask me, she sounds like she’s getting a little bit fanatical about this Mac stuff, next thing she’ll be telling me how “she can’t wait until January for Macworld San Francisco as ThinkSecret says that there will be a new Mac Mini – the first to run on Intel chips – and that it will be part of Apple’s move for the Mac to be the center(sic) of the digital hub in people’s homes…

I guess I shouldn’t have gotten her that iPod shuffle, seems like I’ve started something… ;)

  1. Rick-
    I am from the great Country…ah…I mean State of Texas. I thought I would help you boost your stats as well.

    Very interesting post.

  2. Hi Rick,
    Well I am glad you are now equally yoked in Mac-ness! i am not sure my post will help you expand anything as I believe our little Bolton is already on your map so….. happy mac sharing!

  3. Hi Rick, I too am boosting your international stats. I’m in Taupo NZ, but that apparently shows up as Aucklans, NZ. (4 hours away).

    As for Alyn….that’s such a coincidence. AJ wants Aperture for Christmas. All I want is Closure….

  4. my name is shannon and i’m here to increase your stats. i’m accessing from Holland Landing (that’s somewhere in the middle of nowhere, about an hour sort-of north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada).
    Hope that helps. Maybe someday you, too, can have a map that looks like Alyn’s …

  5. Hey Annie – go for it! AJ switched from a Dell to her PowerBook and she’s never looked back. She loves all things Mac. She even wants Aperture for Christmas!

    Yay!
