Just for posterity, and wanting to share my experience with the Apple drug, simply known as "Magic".
The effect for me as a consultant is also not bad when recommending Apple products... a sample from a small client recently "turned on" to that drug that is Apple "Magic":
Guten Morgen Doc,Good Morning Doc,
habe gestern meinen neuen Mac bekommen...I received my new mac yesterday (MBA 13" fully loaded)
Time Machine Laufwerk angeschlossen...3 Minuten gewartet..Plugged in Time Machine and waited 3 minutes...
und ich habe eine 1zu1 Kopie meines MacBooks!!!!!!and I have a 1 to 1 copy from my MacBook!!!!
Ich bin total begeistert und impressed!!!!!Alles drauf--Passwords everything!!!!!I'm totally fascinated and impressed!!!! Everythings there... passwords, everything!!!!
Konnte sofort weiterarbeiten.....I can start working immediately...
Meine Mädels mit Ihren Windows-Gurken auch..hahaha!!!!My girls (wife and daughter) with their Windows-Pickles (really .. also means slow, worthless piece of junk) ... hahaha!
Ist der Hammer oder?????It's the greatest.. or?????
Wollte dir nur berichten....Just wanted to let ya know...
Bis bald!!Til later!!
I did nothing other than recommend the new MBA, which he purchased at the Apple Store... and sent him a short email detailing a safe transfer from his TM backup (permission repair before and after, that’s about it).
Next step is “must have” the new iPad when it comes to Germany. I mean how fun is this when your only dealing with happy “joyful” people every day? Rather than in the early 2000’s, only dealing with clients with a myriad of problems, unhappy, swearing in 3 languages at me and the machines I/we delivered.
Now when I meet with clients, we spend our time on the next greatest software or product to integrate, rather than trouble-shooting persistent problems. What do you think is more productive?
That... in a far too long post...is “The Apple Magic”. The new drug of choice!
PS: The "Apple Magic Umbrella" effect: rather than purchasing the original MBP back from him (which I do), he's decided to keep it because his daughter wants it... and an iPad 2 of her own
iPhones too, for the family, coming right up at iP5 time
This is toooo easy! Uhm... does this make me a drug dealer
