We are devoted Apple Computer users and spend a lot of time at our computers. We each have our own computer, which are both 27" iMacs. Plus we have a 13" MacBook Pro laptop and an iPad.

Why do we like the Macs? Well, we're untroubled by viruses, hackers, widespread security problems, pop-up/under ads, crappy software, abusive monopolies and spyware. Our family members all prefer Windows machines (except Brian has a couple of Macs), so obviously they don't agree with us.

We use several browsers and change to suit the circumstances. Barbara uses Apple's Safari while Jack prefers Google Chrome.High-speed internet access is via Charter Communications, now called Spectrum.

Mark Sisson's Daily Apple is one of the few that I read every day; it's devoted to health issues.
Zen Habits is another one I like to check frequently; he's a great writer.
Wandering Earl, "The Life of a Permanent Nomad" is interesting.
