Here a Mac, There a Mac, Everywhere a Mac… Mac!

A funny thing happened to me yesterday. I decided to chill out a bit, and go work from a lounge that was open in the sort of Italian area of my city… at a place called Bar Italia. (You should have seen the area when Italy won the world cup… talk about a PARTY). I had heard they have free wireless internet, coffees, good food and stuff, so it should do me quite well. I also met my good buddy Dan from Stunt Software there, and we worked away all afternoon on our own projects.

When I arrived I noticed there were probably 15 to 20 people out on the patio. More than I expected, but still a somewhat small crowd. One person out on the patio had a laptop, and it was a MacBook Pro. Didn’t see any other computers out there, but I was going to see more inside for sure…

Walking in the side door there weren’t many people inside. I noticed Dan and sat down, and we did the usual chit-chat, got a coffee, ordered some food and settled into work. The funny thing was… at some point during the afternoon, we both stopped and looked around. There we were, each with our MacBook Pros… and there were 5 other people in the lounge area as well…and each and every one of them had a Mac. No jokes. If I remember correctly there were 3 MacBook’s, and 2 MacBook Pros all sitting around us.

No real point to this story other than the fact that Macs have certainly come a long way from where they were 2, 3 or even 4 years ago. You see them everywhere, and this little episode was just one example.
