I purchased a new 17″ MacBook Pro which FedEx dropped off today. Of course the cats commandeered it as soon as the laptop was taken out of the box. Silly cats…
I guess this is my first Official Mac. I used a G3 at Aramat briefly to do some audio for a PlayStation One title way back in the day. I cant say I’m extremely ecstatic about it, but I’m warming up to it. I do like the size of the display and I always liked Apple’s keyboards, so I put Final Draft and my Story Structure software on it to be able to write in the living room with the boy or out and about.
I was thinking about getting a new laptop anyway, so this one is pretty cool.
The reason I purchased a Mac, or the reason it had to be a Mac is because I had lunch with a couple software engineers over the weekend, and we’re going to get Retro Assault up and running on the Ipad….Finally!
You need a Mac to access and test the Ipad/Iphone hardware so we’re pulling that together now. Mark has been working on porting the current RA build over to the OSx platform, and then he’ll be programming touch pad controls mimicking a joystick and fire control buttons.
So I’m going to be pulling double duty getting the Screenplay done and working on RA assets. The goal of course is getting it into the market place and having some good side income flowing. I cant wait to see it running on Ipad hardware…so excited!
zzzzz… well I got two hours sleep last night, so time for bed! Hope ya all are having a good week…
