Intel Based Mac Runs Windows XP

Apple Bootcamp Boot Screen on Imac

Three weeks ago I mentioned that someone had manged to get an Intel-based Mac to run Windows XP.

Today Apple announced they have released software called Bootcamp that will allow anyone with an Intel-based Mac, and a licensed version of Windows XP, to run Windows XP.

Apple states that:

“Apple has no desire or plan to sell or support Windows, but many customers have expressed their interest to run Windows on Apple’s superior hardware now that we use Intel processors,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “We think Boot Camp makes the Mac even more appealing to Windows users considering making the switch.”

Sunshine on a Rainy Day

I stopped by an office downtown today to drop off my slowpitch dues for the upcoming season.

The receptionist Leah, one of my very favourite people in the world, shrieked “Jeremy” when I managed to open the crazy door they’ve got on the 7th floor.

It brought back memories of when I worked there for a couple of summers and every morning Leah would greet me with a smiley “good morning”. No wonder I remember those summers as being so sunny.

Leah – let me know when you and John have room for Bridget and I to golf with you. It was great seeing you again!

Visit the Vancouver Aquarium

For a good time in Vancouver visit the Vancouver Aquarium.

I haven’t been to the aquarium in a couple of years. I always try to make a point of going every couple of years for two reasons. One, the Vancouver Aquarium is an amazing aquarium – thoroughly entertaining, and two, because it reminds me of visiting as a child with my parents and particularly my grandfather. As a kid the whale show was always the highlight but all the sealife is really great to see up close.

Take your kids to the aquarium – they’ll rememeber it forever.
