I've found that to be true more than I like to admit.

I too bought a nice big 22' Imac desktop (for my Thai wife ) who refuses to use it. Of course I was hoping it would attract me as well, but I just haven't taken the time to learn it.

I still like my old XP operating system on my desktop computer as I can navigate around it rather quickly. And I put up with Windows 7 on my laptop. But it seems as though every time you get somewhat comfortable with an operation system, some geeks come along and want to reinvent the wheel and throw everything into chaos

Brian, don't be scared...it won't bite...'scuse the pun...just fire up that iMac and have some fun finding out how it goes. It's very intuitive really, and even easier than W7. I know, because I have to use W7 at work, and we are all Macs at home.

Eric, if you didn't understand what we were on about in those last few posts, I suggest you Google, hard drives, RAM, mother (logic) boards, etc and start learning...THERE IS NO GOING BACK, SORRY...
As to your new. IMac...like I said to Brian, above...'seasy

Save your breath, Peter, trying to get a PC user to try a Mac is almost impossible. You would have a better chance persuading a Democrat to switch to the Republican party.

I use to use a PC for years at work and then switched to a Mac when I left and I woudnt go back.

The best idea is to have your Mac partioned off so that you can use both PC and Mac off the same computer using programs like Bootcamp etc.

Exactly what I did so my "PC only" nav programs also run on the Mac, ten years ago I thought Mac's were only an apple to eat......

Go to Google and look at your Adsense settings - they are probably the ones responsible for annoying you. They will let you change the settings.
