Macs to the max

“Are you a Mac person or a PC person?” For more than 20 years, this question has become as common – and to some people, every bit as important – as, “Are you married or single?” “Would you like white or wheat?” “Scrambled or sunny-side-up?” Apple was founded by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in […]

The Help Line

I made a new friend in one of my classes and she seemed really cool at the time, but she continually talks about herself. We’ve hung out a few times, but she’s never once asked about me. It feels weird to “self-promote” what I’ve been up to, but I’m tired of only listening. Still, I’m […]
