I am still waiting for my MacBook Air that supposedly is coming Real Soon Now. But even when it comes, I don’t think I’ll value it was much as PBS talk show host Charlie Rose. Channel surfing after midnight, I couldn’t miss his shiner.
To me, Charlies’s priorities seem in the wrong place. I don’t know what Charlie makes: he runs a business, Charlie Rose Inc., that sells a TV show to local PBS affiliates. However, if he’s paying for homes in NYC and Long Island, I’m guessing that he makes at least 3x what a CSU professor makes, and more likely 10x.
The machine can’t be more than a month old, so even if not backed up that’s not a lot of information to lose. I backed up my (old) laptop today, and you’d think he could get someone to back up his machine for him (or to set up .Mac Backup or Time Machine to do it automatically).
