New blood

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK - Si­mon York

I bought my first iMac a few months ago, and while there was a bit of a learn­ing curve ini­tially (I’ve been a PC user for 16 years), I’ve fi­nally got to grips with the reg­u­lar tasks that I need to do on a daily ba­sis. To ex­pand my knowl­edge, I picked up a copy of MacFor­mat, un­sure if I’d find it packed with re­views of ac­ces­sories I don’t want or need, or page af­ter page of ad­verts (like some PC mags).

I was pleas­antly sur­prised to find ar­ti­cles of great in­ter­est. Tech­ni­cal gems (such as re­set­ting the SMC and PRAM) – prob­lem solv­ing and help­ful walk­throughs of com­mon tasks that I’ve not got to grips with yet. I’ve had the high­lighter pen out and have sticky tabs pok­ing out the top of the mag­a­zine, which now sits on my book­case as a re­source to turn to if I need help.

Yes, there are still re­views for prod­ucts I don’t need, but there are so many I do want! It’s safe to say I’ll be having a word with Santa later in the year. You now have an­other sub­scriber – keep up the good work!
