    Worked for my old man!

    My Dad's computer (a windows machine) recently died, so as an early Father's Day gift, I splurged and bough him an iMac. I've been giving my Dad a hard time about upgrading to a Mac for a while now so I knew if I did this for him, I'd have to find him a companion to get him through the initial set-up and orientation. In his words, "I'm glad you got me the book, because the user's manual that came witht he iMac didn't help at all!"

    Check it out

    I just purchased a MacBook Pro with Lion. The "Macs For Seniors for Dummies" was the most recent dummy book out. It has helped me a lot but of course I will need the new dummy book that includes information on Lion when it comes out this fall!
