    iBooks Everywhere

    INFO TECHNOLOGY: I was studying well into the night yesterday at the Bauhaus Cafe. While trying my best to concentrate on data structures I couldn't help but notice that 4 out of 5 of the laptops in my general vicinity were iBooks. The fifth notebook was a Sony (the same model I used to have before it died and I stripped it for parts and subsequently swore off buying anything Sony ever again). I was also listening to my iPod of course; it was virtually a commercial for Apple.



    So I see iBooks everywhere I go, but Apple is less then 5% of the market share. What gives? Who knows for sure, but my hope is that Apple is gaining some ground amongst the young and the tech savvy - an influential group. Perhaps as more of this core group migrates to Mac (or like myself, expands to all three major OSes) more of the people that rely on these folks for tech support (hi mom) will make the crossover too.



    On a related note, Caffeinated and Unstrug is a great resource for finding Free WiFi in Seattle. The list is getting quite long!
