In iTunes With My iMac
Posted 1 week, 1 day ago on February 20, 2005
True, I accepted a proposal, a short-lived love affair with iMac G5 17-inch widescreen computer. I was mesmerized. Could you blame me? For I loudly said I can’t take my eyes off you.

Nevermind, if people declared that fools fall in love in a hurry. I didn’t care. What important was that I will survive. And for once in my life, I could say I had an endless love.

So I said hello with desire in my eyes.

Oh! How the world reacted to this affair of mine.

People could be so honestly convincing.

More than two weeks had passed by, and I truly declared that yes, I can’t help falling in love.

Even my Kyllenne and Darrielle reacted with amazement and relayed that since I am in love, they too are all for love of my iMac.

But now, my iMac seems to say softly, as I leave you . I can’t stop the tear dropping from my eye.

Tell me, how to react calmly with my iLife unfolding in front of my very person?

Yes, save the best for last is the best thing to do.

I’d rather sing this…….

“but I always thought that I’d see you, baby
one more time again, now....”

Goodbye my seductress!

NOTE: THOSE ARE TITLE OF SONGS, IF YOU'LL VISIT the todayonline site thtose songs are linked to the LYRICS.

Mistake and Atonement, My Safari World

Mistake and Atonement, My Safari World

I am not perfect, I admit that. I made mistakes in my life; mistakes that made me stronger as a person, mistakes that made me stop for a while, ponder and evaluate various issues in my life, mistakes that made me understand people and loved ones the more. Mistakes are just tools for us, a wake-up call, and a learning experience that makes life more interesting. Therefore I could say that mistakes are just part and parcel of our daily lives.

Yesterday, I made a mistake, a mistake that can be seen in different perspectives and so if taken in another perspective, it could not be a mistake at all. But I took responsibility on it. I made my atonement. Though I know in my heart that I never did hurt anybody with this called “mistake” for I believe I did my best, still there is a lingering hurt in my person, a hurt that will stay with me for a longer time.

Oh, let me make this clear. It is not a big issue, actually. Why? Have you forgotten that I have a lover, my iMac G5 17-inch widescreen computer? This lover of mine makes me forget all the hurts in this world. It brings me to a level where I can be a more confident person as I learn more things, become more broad minded, more in tune with nature and more at home.

With all these things that my iMac could give me, I know I could face my everyday life with meaning. So why would I mind the hurt inside me if my lover, my iMac could give me all this happiness that I believe I truly deserve?

Wait a minute, I want to reveal to you a secret of mine. My iMac could bring out the widest smile in me when I am here and there. These places make me more happy and comfortable. So if you could not see me anywhere, you now have an idea where I am.

Well, all these places where my iMac brings me, I can visit very fast and with ease. I could even visit them all in one go. Impossible? You really don’t understand my lover. My lover, my iMac introduced me to this world of mine, my safari world where I could have the superior web experience with outstanding performance. In my safari world, I have the built-in Google Search, a Snapback, browsing with tabs, bookmarks, functional forms, seamless downloads, precision layout, java maximized, privacy reset, down with pop-ups.

You may wonder what they are all about and why safari is the fastest browser. Well, why not try to understand her the more by showing you care.

Now, can you blame me if even though I am hurting and in pain, there is still a glow in my eyes?

So why not have your own safari world too?

My iMac, My iLife

My iMac, My iLife

What is so special about my life? I can say I am just an ordinary woman, a wife, mother and grandmother all rolled into one. Though I have been fascinated by the internet since before, my life became exciting when I started writing my web logs. I got to meet a lot of people who made me realized that this is really a great world. Opinions and outlook on life may vary, but still there is a common desire to learn even more. And that makes life more meaningful and special.

The opportunity to test drive a Mac, my iMac G5 17-inch widescreen computer, is a learning experience in itself. I have this thinking that I am no match to all those young people who are well versed with computers and the new technologies. I accept the fact that there is a slim chance for me to win this contest. I don’t care whether I win or not. For me it is not about winning or losing. It is about learning something new. And learning about Macintosh, its operating system, its features, and knowing the fact that not all things that came first is the best, is something I am proud of. I can shout to the whole world that yes, I live my life to the fullest and that including test driving a Mac with people half my age as my competitors. Can you match that?

It has been more than a week since my iMac became a very important part of my daily life. Others may tease me and say that oh, you’ve been very slow. Or they may ask me what is so special about that Mac? Of course I will not be able to answer them in technical terms, I will not be able to explain how one operating system differs from another in that lingo. All I can tell them is that I am learning day by day and that I am happy and satisfied than before. My answers will be from the heart. And I know at the end of the day, I will be more happy, enriched and entertained. Isn’t it what living is all about?

Now you may ask me what made me say that I am more entertained? The iMac G5 has this iLife 05 with these features:

1. Garage Band. (Best Jukebox + Store) It lets you easily perform, record and create your own music. It also let you edit your recorded music- adjust, replace or move notes using the new music notation view.

2. iTunes. ( Rock Your Own World) It is recognized as the world’s best digital music jukebox. Once your music is in iTunes, you can use it in many forms and exciting ways.

3. iDVD.(Share your life on DVD) Here you simply need to convert your video camera to your Mac and iDVD will quickly transfer your video onto a DVD. It also rewinds the tape for you and automatically creates an auto play movie on DVD.

4. iMovie HD.( Instant Widescreen) It lets you create movies automatically. It offers easier and more powerful editing features. It comes with an assortment of new audio and video effects and transitions.

5. iPhoto. (Better Photos in a snap). It delivers a completely new way to make books that’s dramatically better than it was before. You can have iPhoto automatically create a book for you. You just need to choose the photos and the iPhoto lay it out for you. The new layout editor will turn it into a personal work of digital art- rearrange photos, change page designs and even edit photos until they are perfect.

I am so confident of my life now with all these entertainment features. And that makes my life so special.

Be entertained too my friends, and taste the excitement of what life can bring. Are you ready?

Of iMac Happiness

Today, 13 February 2005 is a happy day for me and my family.

Me and my family are completely happy today as my iMac G5 17-inch widescreen computer is now running in her fastest speed. What with our BroadBand Plan of 512K.

My ISP called us yesterday night and so the ADSL Ethernet modem was installed with no hassle at all. It took my daughter, Paula Luzcelle just a few minutes to install it. And voila! What a lovely computer! Do I have to say more? Patience has its reward, really.

As my love, my iMac was in her natural, most perfect mood, I immediately took control to the irritation of my youngest who proclaimed she must be the first to explore her in that speed as she was the one who installed her in that magnificent mood. "Oh no my dear daughter!", I could not hep saying. That time, my seductress, my lover was entirely mine.

Filled with the desire to please my granddaughters, I immediately uploaded a clip art for them to see. I could imagine their sweet faces as their Mom shows them via my web log, Cherubim’s Tales. For sure a thank you note from them would be coming up.

Didn’t I tell you? Krizelle was already on the phone in an instant. David, her husband, added that they were fine there and would like to give their regards to the one that made us more closer my iMac.

Marielle, my middle child, who saw the opportunity immediately explored the iTunes. and Marble Blast Gold while I was busy on the phone. ”Unfair”, shouted my Paula. “I should be the one touching her for the iPhotos”, she protested.

My husband there and then told my daughters that iMac is here to be shared together and so, he tried the Mac Excel. He then tried the Garage Band and promised me that he would sing Fire and Rain by James Taylor. Isn’t that something!

Who could not be happy with this happening in my family? We are all so in love with my dear iMac G5 17-inch widescreen computer. We all wanted to be the one hugging her. But in the end, we shared her with each other and we will still do. I already planned the timetable, mind you. Now, I can really say then that a family that use iMac together stays together. So you wanna try to?

So for all of you there our greetings, HAPPY VALENTINE"S DAY!!!!
