So effective in fact, that Microsoft retaliated with a series of “I’m a PC” ads designed to show everyday people, not just boring cubicle inhabiting drones, to be “PC’s”. Ultimately, the win for this marketing battle went to Apple, as their market share increased, and it suddenly became “cool” to own an Apple computer.

I love it all- the newest big screen TV’s, smart phones, computers, game consoles, and tablets. You name it, I am into it. I even love the challenge of confronting and fixing the growing pains that new technology can present.

using a cautery tool to separate a partially-clogged blood vessel
from the muscle of the patient's beating heart.

Luke Davis walked the sideline at the Canyon Del Oro-Tempe
McClintock football game on Friday night, taking notes for a story
he'd write for The Explorer. J.D. Fitzgerald, the CDO student who
shoots photographs for the newspaper, didn't recognize his
co-worker at first, because Luke was giving a beard a try.

When pondering our adolescent years, my friends and I often
wonder how our parents understood us when we talked with them.
Another interesting question we discuss is whether or not we cared
what our parents thought?
