Speed, beauty, ease of use, and longevity aside, this computer just earned the right to last week's raping and pillaging of my bank account.

I spent the afternoon with my great aunt; 91, my grandmother; 87, and photo booth. I don't think I have ever seen either of them laugh like that before. The pointing and the giggling and the tears were endless. I left my grandmother's at around 4pm, at 7:30, she called me to ask if the sunglasses on her table were mine. I said I'd drop by in the morning to pick them up. "Are you bringing your computer with you", she asked.

I should make a commercial.

That sounds like a blast! Glad you all had fun.

To get the most out of photo booth you can do the following:

If you have dark hair use a white background that is well lit.

If your hair is blond/grey use a black background.

The background contrast is very important.

Illuminate your face with extra lighting because the flash from the screen is not enough. A flashlight will work.

The attire your wearing should be in contrast to the background as well.

Example: Blond hair, white shirt, white background will give you problems.

The more contrast the better.

Have fun!

Cheers!

You will have many more experiences where you're just like "wow, that was easy", or "I love how this works" or even just "wow!" as you continue your journey in learning about your Mac. Except now that you have that book, you can just read all of that

That's so cool. My dad calls my MBP "the magic box". I get the impression he's impressed with it.

Maybe I'll convince her to buy one for me to test drive. I think she'd be disappointed by the lack of camera though. Now that's a novel sentiment, isn't it? Perhaps my grandmother is more cutting edge and hip than she knew!

Thanks for the tips. I'm not sure you can have more fun than watching two little old ladies make fun of each other. My g-aunt actually pushed her sister out of the frame so that she could make her own forehead bulge "better".

It's a pretty good book, but I think the experience is outshining it.

People would buy more of them just because they admitted to the raping and pillaging, out loud!
