I was browsing the web to see if I could find a photo comparison between these two machines and could not. So what was the first thing I did after I got my EEE, I got myself a photo comparison.
While everyone knows that the MacBook Air is going to be larger than the EEE as well as thinner, I don’t know if people realized how these devices look side by side. See for youself .
I have put the Woz laptop up on ebay. It can be found here. The Buy It Now price serves as a boundary. You can provide your best offer below that and I will consider it. The reason for selling the laptop is mainly due to I need the money. I also need an x86-64 architecture-based system to run Windows XP for certain classes that require the use of Windows-based applications. The laptop is only one option. I may end up using the money for books due to I have no money for books for next quarter. Please spread the word about my laptop and if you are interested, please leave your best offer.
Due to an unfortunate accident, my PowerBook G4 screen casing was slightly bent. This caused the latch to slip and my screen to open at will. Having tried tape multiple times to keep the latch stationary, I decided to try something different. After some thinking, I decided to try using a toothpick to keep the latch in place and it worked perfectly. I colored the toothpick black to make it less distinct.
Today at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Steve Wozniak came to speak about his book, iWoz. His talk was one of the most amazing and interesting ones that I’ve been to. Woz went on many tangents which led to RIT staff having to cut it short due to time constraints. If not, I believe he would have went on for several hours which I wouldn’t have minded at all. One student, apart of the Robotics club, asked Woz if he would stay in contact with them for tips and suggestions. Woz whole-heartedly agreed to do so. Which led to an applause. I was shocked to say the least.
Once the event was over, I raced over to the Bookstore where he would be signing his book. I ended up being 3rd to 6th in line due to people kept cutting in front. The end result is an authentically signed PowerBook G4 by Steve Wozniak. If you don’t believe me, I’ve got pictures to prove it . While blurry due to my shaking hands, they are definitely proof. Pictures were ironically taken with a T-Mobile Dash running Windows Mobile 6.
