Not that I really care for her music, but I always find it nice, when I see that a star or wonnabe star is using a Mac! :D

Either that picture is taken at a weird angle, or it's a fake... it looks very very weird....

I don't think it is a fake... it is from her official website and there are even more pictures of her using the PowerBook. She's just sitting on the bed with PowerBook in front of her...

Why?

She's just pushing her head towards the camera... I still don't see what you mean...

That pic is so fake. It is her face cropped on to a teen age boy's body. The arm's are hairy and the body is so flat chested.

Jeez,

Peter

Actually, Peter, she just looks like that.
Number one rule: Think before you type. You may think that AlphaTech being gone is a flame proof suit, but you still shouldn't make glib remarks, if you know what glib means

Definitely not fake. Although, I will be the first to admit that the original picture did look kinda odd. I was 95% convinced that it was Photoshopped too until I found these.

Good another popular musician who uses mac:) How many does that make now. Why would someone who is so cool be want to be seen carrying a stinkpad?

I've seen several photos of Michael Stipe of R.E.M. using a Pismo as well, although these were from a couple years ago so maybe he's upgraded.

All I have to say is:

Why'd ya have to go and make things so complicated?

I think it's awesome that so many artists and creative professionals use macs. Has anyone here ever seen "Reba" (not that i'm proud to say that I have, cause it's horrible). They use powerbooks and FP iMacs. Not to mention Rush Limbaugh. Buffy the vampire slayer features iBooks. Tommy Lee uses all sorts of macs. It is not that hard to believe that Avril uses a TiBook.

Anyways...

I thought the original picture looked just fine until the squirrel in drag said something about it. The more you stare at it the weirder it looks. Kinda looks like her head is detached and coming toward you.

I need caffine.

No, I think caffeine is exactly what you DON'T need. :)

Does anyone know other famous Mac User? In CD Cover of Tori Amos' "Under the pink" album you can read: "Thanks to Apple Computers its bitchin what these things can do."

Also I read about Herbie Hancock using TiBooks on stage and Powermac G4s at the studio.

I'm really interested in musicians working with Apple. This is the why I plan to get a iBook during the next 6 months:

iSync with (Sony)Ericsson T68, iCal, Wlan at my university and music by Logic (via Event Ez-Bus)

Is the iBook the right gear for that? At the Barefeat page I noticed that the 700 Mhz G3 can't concur with similar fast G4 Powerbooks, iMacs and eMacs, but in Rendering, it has got a small advance? Who about music?

Herbie Hancock is also a Bose pitchman... so, take that for what it's worth. :)

Well, that maybe right, but, as a real musician you don't have a choice - sell yourself by doing this mainstream ****, or sell your name for endorsements. What would be yours?

Now, the real question... Does she use OS 9 or OS X? And if X, is it 10.1, or has she forked out the money for Jaguar. Inquring minds want to know! :D :cool:

Well,its disappointing to see that the only video in the video section can be seen only as a Real Video or windows media...

Guess she hasn't browsed her own site with her Powerbook
