I bought a brand new MAC G4 when it came out. Plus scanner,ZIP and Floppy externals. I also went to a computer school which cost $16,000 dollars. I learned photoshop,illustrater,and other programs, Well lets say i got started . Then I had a job working at Kinko's working on every imaginable type of file. I learned pagemaker and quark. They are page layout programs. Then i got DREAMWEAVER and learned how to make web sites. But now it seems like my computer experience is being ruined by SWF files. I hate all the shockwave 8 files, FLASH stuff. Real memory hogs. And I see no reason to see jumping monkeys on mortgage loan ads. Anyway the other day a guy showed me this FLIP video device. Very cool. But now I find out it only works with Windows media player. IS it really time to give up on Mac's? For me to get a new MAC and all my programs we are talking $5,000 bucks! Any awnswers?
