Tibor Ratkai sent me an email this morning, notifying me that my voice (as well as Ponzi’s) has been used without our permission for a video Mac-Essentials.de just produced on the new black MacBooks. Well, let me be the first to say: COOL! If they thought Derek’s remix was awesome enough to use for the video soundtrack, who am I to argue? My only wish is that the video could’ve been longer. I don’t think we ever would have found out about this if it weren’t for Tibor. Don’t know if it makes me wanna run out and get a black MacBook yet, but it certainly gives me bragging rights – to say that my voice played a pivotal role in a German video about new Apple laptops. How’s that for obscure?
I don’t know if I’d buy one of Apple’s new MacBooks right now or not. I’d much rather wait until OS X has Boot Camp baked into the operating system. That, and I’m waiting for Apple to release a few more generations of the MacBook running on the Intel platform. I’m in no rush to upgrade to a piece of hardware that might very well be a PoS. Apple’s done a good job with the MacBook, don’t get me wrong – but I’m just not enthusiastic about running out and buying one. Making the MacBook black is enticing, but not anything more than “interesting” to me as a tech enthusiast today. Ask Andru from GearLive what he thinks after he was forced to leave Boot Camp.
