It was 20 years ago today, when Apple….

…taught the Mac to Play; games that is….huh! My how things change. I remember back in the day when Apple and Macs we’re not taken very seriously in some circles and the complaint went something like; “yeah Macs are only good for games and graphics”. Now if you really want to get something done you need a PC…. all of this coming from people who knew nothing about Apple and what they were doing or trying to do. Well, geeks grow up and now I hear that gaming is coming back to the Mac. What apparently was seen as flaw has now become a benefit. Which means that grown men are playing World of Warcraft; women of course no better, oh the irony. What all of this points to is that with the rise of things like PSP, X-Box and Wii, gaming has become [respectable?] no, it’s a huge billion dollar industry. Computer platforms aside, it’s all about entertainment and the battle for how that entertainment is delivered.

I could go into a long diatribe of the pros and cons of entertainment being the parent of more teenagers than I can count on one hand. I will leave that discussion for another forum but will say that when it comes to entertainment, “choose wisely”. Not everything that comes on a plastic disc is healthy.

Don’t be fooled folks; there is real entertainment out there if you need it, accept no substitutes….

Now back to your regular scheduled programming.
