Patrick’s brand new 15-inch MacBookPro is randomly rebooting (happened twice in 15 minutes, and four times on Thursday). I thought it was only happening to MacBooks, not the MacBookPros. My son is learning that blind allegience to a company (he’s Apple’s biggest fan) comes with pain too. Anyone else have this problem?
Patrick’s off to the Apple store to see what they say.
As a comparison, I have three PCs. Two of which have never crashed in their entire lifetimes. And I use my PCs nearly around the clock. I have two Macs too and haven’t seen this problem on those.
It’s already 2007 in many parts of the world. We have 13 more hours to go here. Happy New Years!
2006 saw a lot of change in my life. Published a book, which has done very well. Mom dying. Quitting an awesome job and starting with a startup that doesn’t have an assured future. Moving. Sold and bought a house. Got a BMW and a big screen. Tons of traveling. Starting a new video show (in first three months have interviewed more than 50 CEOs).
Hopefully 2007 sees a little more steadiness, but I bet it’ll be just as chaotic as 2006. My son becomes a teenager in 14 days. Yikes. The years are ticking off awfully fast.
Here’s hoping that 2007 is a great one for you and your families. See ya on the other side.
The 15-year-old kid in India, Yuvi, does a LOT more analysis of my blog. For instance, there’s a 70% chance I won’t link to something twice. I find this all fascinating. Gives me a look into my own behavior here that I never had. It also turns out I link a lot more to PodTech lately. That makes sense, cause I’m now part of PodTech and want you to know what I’m doing over there.
This analysis earned Yuvi a subscription. I find I’m putting stuff of his on my link blog. It’d be very interesting to see an analysis of what I put on the link blog. Why? Cause I bet that’s a bit less biased — I put anything on there that simply catches my eye. That might be a more useful thing to analyze.
UPDATE: Christian Long (my favorite education blogger) analyzes Yuvi’s posts.
