On the very cheap (read free) I now have an iPhone 4s. Combine this with my iPad Mini and Mac Mini, and I have a Circle of Apple!

I feel...powerful. Mighty. Awesome. And I'm quite new to mac too!

What does one do with all this awesomeness?

I was going to add some additional sarcasm to that post. But I thought I should quit while I'm ahead!;)

But seriously, I finally feel like I'd fit in there...

Excellent! I think that you recognized what I meant! Don't forget the "man-purse"!;)

p.s. A little bit of humor. Not going to quit my day job though!;)

You laugh but I actually have one. They're quite common with men above the age of 30 here in Hungary...

So, do I fit in NOW? Am I mighty?

Seriously, I already love my iPhone SOOOOO much compared to my crappy Samsung Galaxy S Advance. The difference is so great - and this isn't even a new, hotter iPhone that I have! Sad really.

Man Purse???? Really Nick - just what you need. ;D Actually as a female I do try to figure out how you guys get along with just a wallet. Oh, wait .... right! - you have a wife or girlfriend with a purse to carry what you can't.

Guys in Hungary must be more considerate and have their own. :*

And I am joking and I also will not give up my day job. O:)

Hey Lisa - I just get along w/ a wallet but use to carry a brief case when I worked.

BUT, purses seem popular even w/ some of our movie heroes, as below - ;D

I believe that our OP needs to put his country of origin beneath his name, just so others know - Dave :)

But that is Indiana Jones!! He carries secret maps and magic stuff in his so I am not sure if it is a man purse or maybe a messenger bag???

Anyway... ;D

Some things you can do with all that awesomeness ...

Open an iCloud account (if you don't already have one), and turn on syncing for services as you desire (such as Contacts or Calendar, Email and Safari bookmarks) on all three devices. That by far is the coolest thing iOS and Mac devices do for each other!

If iTunes Match is available in your country, you might look into that. It's essentially a way (for around $25 a year) for you to put your entire Music library into a cloud locker that your iPhone can access. Any song you own, no matter how large your library, is now available for you to play on demand. This also frees up space on the iPhone, since you don't have to store a huge library of music to have lots of tunes anymore.

Actually I'm American, but I've lived abroad for about 18 years now. I've been 9 years in Hungary (Japan before that). And in many parts of Central and Eastern Europe, at least, "man purses" (satchels, really, but small ones) are quite normal for men in the 30+ range. And I'll just say that while I don't always carry it, I carry it a lot when the wife and I are out for long periods of time. Just more convenient.

Men under thirty usually carry full-blown backpacks, though a few younger men are carrying Hungarian traditional satchel thingies (no idea what the origin story is; maybe for coins back in the day?).

That I already had, and yes, it was really cool to get all my everything onto the phone with no bobble. Especially the Safari bookmarks! I really time saver.

Just so many things I love about the phone already. So much better than what I had before.

Here in Indonesia a "Bum Bag" is the indispensable piece of male accoutrement. I tried swapping all my belongings into one every time I had to wear sarong but got sick of swapping it all back again so just gave up and joined the rest of the crowd, now I can't get along without it. Whatever I'm wearing I just clip it on and I have everything I need.
