Well, whilst the delivery did take two whole weeks, I am glad the IMac is here! I have to say, it is a very tidy box and the setup was painless. The last time I looked as Mac OS X it was really nasty to get it to connect to a SBS Network. This time it took me a grand total of 5 minutes. Impressive for a non-apple person I think 😉
There is a cool “Windows Media” type program that allows you to view videos, listen to your music with a tiny remote control. This is pretty cool except the fact that there is no storage place for the remote on the IMac which I really would have thought that Apple would have thought about. Mind you, I suppose the fact that they got everything including a dual core Intel processor into the monitor was impressive enough.
I was chatting with Vlad Massek from the IMac with MSN Messenger 5.1 and I asked him if he knew how to do a CTRL – C to copy as this did not work on the Mac. He said “right click and select copy”…. can you believe it but I actually went to do it! Doh! (Of course it is actually THATFUNNYSQUIGGLYSYMBOL – C to copy on a Mac 🙂
Actually, that reminds me…. Vlad has a great post up at the moment. Take a read.
Edit: I take it back, its cool…. the wee remote is magnetic and sits nicely on the side of the monitor!
