iBand

One of my friends showed this to me the other day and I had to share it with you! A church in Atlanta, North Point, creatively put together a band, iBand, where all they use is iPads and iPhones. They even have the only singer using his iPhone with a voice synthesizer. Enjoy!

Steve Jobs 1955-2011

As many of you know Steve Jobs, the innovator and creator of much of the Apple products I use each day passed away yesterday. Some of the products like the iPod, iPad, iPhone and my most prized possession, my MacBook Pro are his inventions. Those are just a small sampling of what he has created since he has been at Apple. BTW I don’t yet own an iPad but am hoping Santa will give me one for Christmas or for Dutch Christmas (my birthday). haha.

Steve will be missed by all those who worked with him but also by the rest of us, those who have enjoyed all of his inventions and creativity. We need to pray for those who are left behind, his family, friends and co-workers at Apple. I am sure they are missing him even now.

I wanted to finish off this post with a quote I found Steve said early on in his career at Apple. Notice the only thing missing from this quote is God. But if you listen closely he has the attitude we all should have not just about our job but about our role as Christians on this earth amongst our family, friends and especially co-workers.

“I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. — Steve Jobs 1955-2011.

So thankful for Apple geniuses

Some of you might not know, last night, my MacBook dropped out of my backpack onto a hard concrete floor in the basement of our church.

Needless to say I was very upset, but more so angry with myself for not zipping up the backpack where the laptop was in. I lazily put my laptop in my backpack and didn’t purposely zip it up because I was only going downstairs to set-up it to teach a lesson that night. When I went to bend over to put something on the floor the laptop had a life of it’s own and began to fall to the floor. It was like my life went into slow motion as I watched it topple over as I tried to grab at it. I felt helpless.

The truth is this is not the first time this happened, but the first time was minor scrapes and scratches. This time it was a serious dent. A dent that exposed the underneath of the laptop so dust or dirt could get in if I didn’t get it fixed. It also looked very ugly.

Not knowing what to do I decided to contact the Apple Store to find out if they could repair it and how much.

After setting up an appointment with an Apple Genius, I was told my hard drive could be damaged for good. He took it into the back to check how serious the damage was, if any. After about 15 minutes or so, he came back and pulled out an estimate. He proceeded to explain the possible cost of the repair. With replacing the top cover and bottom case it was going to be almost $400.

Then the genius did something I never expected, he said “I’m feeling generous today” and he moved his finger to another column on the page that showed $0.00. Then he said “how do you like this price?” I was shocked and obviously said “I love it.” And I continued to say “thank you” over and over again. He politely said “you’re welcome” and got me to sign on the dotted line. The only catch is that they had to keep my laptop for at least two days.

Without my laptop I had to figure out how to use a pen and paper again. It’s been so long. Haha!

I’m so thankful that my iPhone can send and receive emails easily. And I can update my blog and other Internet related activities. Phew!

A huge THANK YOU to the Apple Store at Square One and the Apple Genius that was so generous to me today!
