My Macbook Rocks Part 1

I discovered today that the MacBook powers its USB port even while the system is asleep. I've had systems in the past that I've tried this with and never had any luck.

The MacBook is now the biggest most expensive external battery pack for a cellphone one could ever have! I just charged my iPhone almost all the way, while watching streaming tv on it. This reduced my laptop's charge about 20% (if that).

(don't ask why I wasn't just watching movies on the laptop.. it was a geeky experiment.)

Man, at what point did I become a big old Apple fanboy?

Why I love the Thinkpad #37

I needed to take apart a my precious Thinkpad today. (The poor thing is getting on in years, and I needed to swap out its CPU fan.) It struck me as I was taking it apart. (something I've done many times) I don't know of any other puter manufacturer that makes it this easy on you. This is a primary reason I love the Thinkpad. It's like the Jeep of computers. Simple, easy to service, uses basic, standard parts and screws.
