not me either, well at least not today, I found myself worshiping at the house of Apple, although my local ‘cathedral’ is nothing like the NYC one, that’s really a site. And it was much like other ‘services’, love the music/opening…in this case a ‘getting started’ workshop, but the time with ‘preacher’ aka ‘apple genius’ left me wanting more. You might be wondering why as a long time mac user I went to getting started workshop, I wondered the same thing myself…would I really get anything out of it, but since the new operating system is so slick and has many bells and whistles I thought it wouldn’t be a bad way to spend an hour on a Sunday am and I already had made the genius appt so would be going to the store anyway. It was nice to have a demo of the bells and whistles…and it really was a demo not a ‘workshop’ but we’ll save a semantics lesson for the apple kids for another day.
My genius appt. took all of 6 minutes. I went because I was having a hard time finding my photo files I spent hours transferring last weekend, I could see them in iPhoto, but couldn’t get them to open in elements or otherwise see them as independent files. ‘Genius’ says that’s purposeful and to secure the iPhoto database and the only way to use them is to drag to the desktop and choose ‘open with’. meanwhile keeping his sunglasses on and since he wasn’t wearing a genius shirt I’m hoping he’s wrong. It seems so un-Apple like to make it that difficult to get to individual files, so I got up and left thinking I’m going to go home and google this…why didn’t I do it before? well I was sure something had gone kooky with the file conventions. Wish me luck and send advice if you have any.
