Mac migration continues

After I purchased my iPod nano (a year ago? two years?), I installed iTunes on my home desktop Windows machine. And for the most part, that has worked fine. This morning I migrated everything over to the Mac Book and sync’d up the nano. My original thought was I wanted to be able to update podcasts wherever I might be. Before, I had hook up to the home PC…now I sync with the Mac Book which I am keeping with me more and more.

I’ve also loaded my Outlook contacts back on the nano (I’ve found this to be extremely useful). First time I did this it was a bit of a pain. Had to export the contacts from my Win machine at work and jump thru a couple of hoops to get the file on the nano. These days, I keep my Mac Book Address Book sync’d with work (I just drag and drop a file) and sync’ing the nano with the Mac Book is… well, you’ve seen the TV ads.

Pre-Mac, I tended to keep a lot of stuff scattered between home, work, laptop. I find myself looking for ways to get my most important stuff on the Mac. I’m looking forward to my first road trip with the Mac.

  1. I too am having the same experience with my new black MacBook. I was not looking fwd to transferring 25G of PC files over (mostly mp3s), but it was a snap! Mac does take some getting used to, but I’ve found that their solutions are far and away more superior.
    I’m going to Vancouver on my first trip with a laptop soon, and I’m looking fwd to (finally) taking everything with me… and wireless is an absolute dream when piggybacking on various networks.
    My girlfriend asked me why I “needed” to bring the MacBook along on a relatively short (2 week) trip: “Because I’m addicted to it like liquid cocaine!” (She relates to it as “My Mistress”… and with good reason.)
