LOL so the only thing that really kept me from going PS3 was the netflix streaming, apparently PS3 gets that next month. I really don't see the need for paying xbox $60 some dollars each year, so I think I'm going to get a PS3, give the blu ray player to my dad and eliminate one of the media stacked units. Plus it's the last microsoft product i have in the place, i'll be free of the M$ EULA once and for all LOL

I have a wii. Actually i haven't played any games at all lately, no time, we use the xbox for netflix all weekend long, so that's what gives it the most use. the ps3 will have netflix soon.

I bought my first game console in my entire life last week, a Wii.... We bought it just to play rock band world tour, but we ended up playing alot of the sports games.

Its kinda fun, you can exercise while playing video games..



My latest digital dilemma is trying to find small business/accounting software for the Mac. I bought moneyworks and it just plain all out sucked.. I might have to break down and put windows 7 on it with simply accounting..

A surprising number of small businesses run Quickbooks. I once worked briefly with a company that had grown to well over 100 employees and they still used Quickbooks.

I think I'll have a look at quickbooks, my accountant didn't have much good to say about it though... I see there is a new version of MYOB out for Canada/Mac applications..

I need to get some more WII games to.

that means she's a good accountant. LOL Amy hates it, the museum even uses it for the POS registers.

You don't have a lot of good accounting software that is cheap. What are you trying to do? QB is it for under $1,000 that is okay - if you get a decent accountant or do it yourself you will learn it's issues and the work-arounds. It's like hiring the $30 an hour CPA - do you really expect them to know what they are doing? So you can't really expect QB to be the end all. Don't get me wrong it works, it's just not self explanatory. Let me know if you need help getting any of it figured out, I have been doing this a long time and am good at what I do (so my employers say). Don't get the QB for Mac it's a flaming heap of poo.
