You Got To Know When To Hold 'Em ...

You know I have always dreamed of owning my own Macintosh (no, no, not the raincoat thingy) but so far have to settle for just using the good old PC for various reasons. Being cheap and compatible with just about a few gadzillion free softwares out there is one big influence.

My love affair for a Macintosh goes back to my very first job I worked in. Back then, every Advertising agency (the big ones that is) had Macintosh's for their designers to work on. My company was a small local Ad agency and we did things the manual way. It was a while before we made some good money and got ourselves our first ever Mac. The moment I set my eyes upon it, I knew 'she' was the one for me ... LOL!

We could only afford one Mac so the head designer got exclusive use of it. The rest of us low downs got the useless windows 3.11 PC (yes, it was way back then). So, we'd only get to use the Mac when this guy was not around. We all envied him. The PC was nothing compared to the Mac and I still think the Mac is way more cool than the PC.

But to me, the only downside to using a Mac is the lack of software created for it. It used to be that to own a Mac, you'd have to only use their proprietary stuff, unlike the PC where there were a host of third party pirated apps ... urrmm ... I mean cheap apps for it. Even when it comes to some online gaming, you'd have problems with compatibility. I mean I like playing online poker, just for the fun of it (ok, ok, maybe sometimes a little betting is involved ... LOL) and I know for a fact that I couldn't find one that was playable on the Mac. That is until today :)

I happened to stumble across this site called Mac Poker online and they have just what any Mac poker playing owner could hope for ... hehehe ... This site offers an organized list of all the best online poker sites that you're able to play on the Mac. You can play for free or if you're interested in making (or losing) money, depends on how good you are, you can play for real at all of the sites offered on the list.

You can also checkout their reviews online on some of the sites and see if it is the site for you or not. Finding a trustworthy and reputable site for the Mac is no longer a hassle with Mac Poker Online. So if you're one of those Ad agency pukes working on your Macs and decide you need a break form the stress of designing to just gamble a little (did I even suggest that? How evil of me ... LOL!), then Mac Poker Online is the answer to your dreams.

As for you PC using fellows (like me) you guys can't claim you have all the best stuff for your silly old PC's now can you? LOL! Fortunately I'm not really into gambling and my current office uses a whole network of PC's, so it's of no use to me just yet!

I love online games but I've never tried poker before. I try to stay away with anything that involves money! Kedekut la... rather buy food instead! Hehehe

Nessa, you can play free la, then if you really feel lucky, you can try the real thing ... LOL! But I'm with you, I'd rather eat with the money :)

Yah, mac is so cool! I remember we invested in our first Mac DTP in 1989 for our design biz. It cost us S$33,000 for the set up (just 1 Mac and Apple printer)! Now we can probably have the same thing for a tiny fraction of the cost.

BT, I believe you when you sa it costs S$33,000.00 for the system. Those things really did cost 2 arms and 3 legs back then.

Now I think you can get 6 for that price ...
