Apple and Intel sitting in a tree….

Well, I’m sure some of you might be wondering what I think about all of this. Unfortunately, I can’t really speak to it except it feels like a scene in Empire Strikes Back. I don’t really understand what are the salient differences between RISC and x86. I know the old party line on the subject: RISC => more instructions per cycle. I guess I’ll have to learn to say ‘Intel => more power per watt’. Whatever. I can’t say I’m ready to move to Windows (I use Windows almost every day testing web sites). I don’t know. I guess it’s like the Woz told me in an email about the death of the OS 9 desktop metaphor: we’ll just have to wait and see what they do. There are lots and lots of unanswered questions.
In other news, I’m headed down to GHP tomorrow. I’m having trouble getting motivated to finish packing. My kids seem eager and excited, and I’m excited too; it’s just going to be hard to be separated from Tess; even though I’ll see her every week. I’m not looking forward to that aspect of it. At any rate, I need to get back to packing.
Oh, one more thing….
I got the job!!!!! Woooo Hooooooo!
more on that to follow…
