I worked in IT for ten years with a specialty in Macintosh technologies and Project Management.
I've worked with the Macintosh Operating system and various machines since my first PowerMac 8500 running Mac OS 7.5.3 in 1996. I support my friends and family in keeping their Macs healthy and upgraded. Now I use a MacBook Pro for our home media network and we're pretty much down to iPads and iPhones for daily use.
Most important: I've also worked on PCs for a number of years with various flavors of Windows(95,98,NT4,2000,2000Server,2K3Server,SBS 2K3Server,Mil,XPHome,XPPro, Vista Business), but I've always used the Mac as my platform of preference.

Navy Federal Credit Union (Washington, D.C.) Whole Foods Market (Mid Atlantic Region) Army Times (Washington, D.C.) Children's National Medical Center (Washington, D.C.) Dodge Communications (ATL) ...and a plethora of All Coveredô clients throughout the United States of America (now a part of Konica Minolta)
I enjoy working on the Macintosh platform and helping people realize their goals using the Mac. The Macintosh is a great tool for all means of hobbies and careers from photography to Power Point presentations. It provides the user with a robust operating system and the IT department with a machine that's easy to manage and inexpensive to upgrade.
I hope I'm able to contribute to the online community in some way over the next decade or so. (Hey look at that, it's been a decade)
Have you checked out Apple's Support (and discussions) lately? http://www.apple.com/support/ AWESOME documentation, and very searchable discussions. Got AppleCare? GET IT.
Jailbreaking iOS devices. AT&T finally let us unlock them officially off contract, but jailbreaking still provides a plethora of apps not found in the app store. www.redmondpie.com is a great source for info on this.
