Had a good chat with Eric in the interview, the serious problem he has like many of us Mac users is “Toy Addiction” That’s obviously going to be a problem when Apple keep bringing new and sexy goodies.
He has a large iMac and is waiting on delivery of the new MacBook Pro 17in. Eric was telling me about Mint.com which is an online way of looking after your finances. More use to US users though due to the limited list of banking sites connected to it. I think I prefer to keep my money info with the bank directly.
Eric is a photographer with a Nikon and is interested in doing some HDR High Dynamic Range photos and we mentioned the applications Photomatix and one called Hydra. Photomatix is my preferred HDR software. I asked if he had, had the urge to get a book of photos printed using the Apple service but was unsure about the quality of the printing, so if any of you have knowledge of that please leave a comment belao.
He has VMware Fusion available if he has to run a Windows program but rarely uses it since changing job. Eric recomends adblock and the translator plug ins for Firefox. He says that Eventbox is worth looking at for us social networking types. I countered with my choice, which is Ping.fm and lately using with Blogo
Soul music is a passion for Eric and he contributes to a blog called Brown Sugar. An excellent resource if you are into soul music.
