ATPM 16.09

The September issue of About This Particular Macintosh is now available for your reading pleasure.

Shhhhhhh. Be vewy, vewy quiet. Mark is hunting dwagons. He then ponders who’s really using less paper, us or them. (Them being corporations, not dwagons. Er, dragons.)

Yours truly had the pleasure of interviewing a friend: Heather Sitarzewski. Heather’s a very creative gal; the things she comes up with never fails to surprise me.

ATPM staffer Wes Meltzer has had to travel quite a bit of late for his other employer (the one that actually pays him). With finances being tight enough that a MacBook Air wasn’t in the cards, and needing something lighter than a 13-inch MacBook, Wes decided to try living with an EeePC netbook running Ubuntu Linux on the road.

Rob regales us with his tale of iPad purchasing, noting that our favorite fruit company’s tablet is an earnings and revenue monster.

If you like flowers, you’ll love this month’s desktop pictures selection. ATPM reader Sterling Garwood shares some photos he took in North Carolina.

Calling out the hazmat team, too much caffeine, avoiding FBI warnings on DVDs, old-fashioned copy editing, menopause, multi-level marketing, outsourcing the boss, and recycling: all in the line of duty in Out at Five.

Ed boldly goes where most of us fear to tread: into the realm of accounting. With his look at Acclivity’s AccountEdge and FirstEdge, things appear to be heading into the black. Finally, Eric puts his baby in then hands of Griffin’s Loop, a tabletop stand for the iPad.

As always, this issue of About This Particular Macintosh is available in a wide variety of formats for your enjoyment:

Thanks for reading, ATPM!
