Well, I trashed my MacBook Pro

Well, I totally trashed my new Macbook Pro and it’s sitting in my local Apple Store as I write this blog post. I don’t have FTP access to my site’s server so I’m blogging off my iPod Touch with the WordPress app in the App Store. I trashed my EFI bootloader for OS X because I experimented a little too much with my Linux partition and blew my whole system to hell. So now I’m stuck with an old Ubuntu machine and my iPod. Belive me, I love the touchscreen QWERTY keyboard, but it wasn’t made for blogging. Now my fingers are tired and so am I. So alas, RIP to my OS X files and hello to a new installment of OS X, let’s see what the future holds for you.

It’s true, Apple is offering, until September 15, a free 8GB iPod Touch or iPod Nano when college students buy a MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or iMac. They can also get up to $300 off the actual computer and up to $80 off AppleCare. The rumors have been circling around for months now, and they were 100% true, congrats college students, you now have Apple’s blessing. To see the offer on the Apple website click here.
