Take an Apple on a Safari

Two weeks ago, I put a software application training DVD on my laptop, the contents of which is intended to give me an overview of the software I was about to work on on my latest project at my workplace.  However, the DVD would not run and I discovered it was because it required QuickTime Player to be installed on my laptop, which I did not have then.  Of course, I proceeded to install Apple Quicktime, and with it I also had iTunes installed.  Yay!

Well, little did I know that together with the QuickTime installation, the Apple Safari browser was installed too. And it wasn’t till about three days ago when I was prompted to install some patches or upgrades for Safari, that I realized it was there.  Yeah, I am that blur.

Anyway, I decided to take the Safari out on a test drive.  For the first time!

And guess what…? I absolutely totally love it!  Not only do I love the clean look it exudes, the sites load so much faster with Safari too.  I thought Firefox was cool, but Safari takes the cake for me, I tell ya.  Fonts and colors seem to appear classier, making the reading experience a sensational one.  

As if this was not too much exposure to Apple products, I actually physically held an iPhone today!  After all the hype I had heard about this gadget, especially from the Emperor and the Queen, having it in my hand finally satisfied my curiosity.  It belongs to my co-worker(well, actually her husband) and she very kindly allowed me to fiddle with it.  I toyed around with the finger zoom in and zoom out functions (super awesome), the map application (also works with the finger zooming feature), iPark (methinks this is to allow one to key in the pillar number where one parks their car) and of course the Safari web browser included in the iPhone.

I think I could grow to like this, just like so many others have. 🙂

Y-A-W-N………and now, if you’ll excuse me, I’d like to call it a night.  I’m looking forward to a really good night’s rest tonight (because it’s gonna be a very activity-filled day tomorrow), and I hope the Friday’s strawberry margarita (which I finally had for the first time ever this evening) will help me attain that.  Oh, and for the record, the margarita really really rocks!

    Welcome to the A Taste of Apple: The Forbidden Fruit. Once Bitten, Maybe Twice Not So Shy!

    I am glad you like Safari. But, do you realize that Safari is only 1% of the Total Feel of Everything Apple? Imagine your Photo Manager the same (iPhoto). Imagine your mail the same (Mail). And imagine All Your Applications the same (Mac OS X Leopard)!!! *wicked grin*

    Oh, and one more thing. The exterior too (The iMac/MacBook/MacBookPro/MacPro)..

    The Giddy Tigress says: I have not touched the iPod yet, but the iPhone is everything the iPod is AND more!!! Hey, you are in a spectacular position to land yourself an iPhone now, iRinnah!

    I love the idea of the iPark – Apple thinks of everything!

    The Giddy Tigress says: Yeah, but actually without iPark, we can actually just make do with our camera phone, taking a pic of the pillar with the number, no?

  5. I am still waiting for that iBikini. A wonder piece of clothing that makes everybody looks good in it!

    The Giddy Tigress says: Gosh, that sounds great. Let me know when you get it, I’d love to see some pictures too! *wink*

    Go buy! Go buy! The best part is I don’t have to switch on the pc, waiting for it to load, then surf. With iPhone, one touch of button, I can start surfing. So convenient can die lidat.

    The Giddy Tigress says: How come everyone is tempting me to buy leh? Maybe I should start an iPhone fund la…for ppl to contribute to.

  12. DG says:

    heehee… an Apple convert in the making eh?

    The Giddy Tigress says: You think so? *clutches handbag even tighter*

    my hubs sleeps with his iPhone since getting a friend to get it for him from the states! I turned it down cos i thought it was a tad too heavy and bulky. But what do I know? I can barely operate my laptop!!

    The Giddy Tigress says: It’s a great toy for people who dig gadgets, I’d say. But if you just use your phone to make calls, no need la.

  14. sasha says:

    wah wah margarita.. i long time never drink edi.

    The Giddy Tigress says: Be good and don’t drink yet ah… I also long time never drink…take opportunity now, cos I am neither pregnant nor breastfeeding ma.

  15. bs says:

    So, what are you waiting for? Go get the iPhone or anything that is Apple.

    The Giddy Tigress says: You’ll sponsor?

  16. wen says:

    nice theme! is it really good iPhone. maybe i shd get one, easier to browse on holiday

    The Giddy Tigress says: If you use the phone for many many things, then it is a great buy. If it is just for calls, then any normal phone would suffice.
