I know everyone bangs on about Apple, and that some day soon they'll probably turn into the bad guys, but this trip owes a big thank you to Apple...
We're both big unashamed fans of pretty much everything that they make, but on this occasion the real star is our little faithful MacBook which has taken a fair bruising on this trip and has to live in the shadow of Julie's absolute adoration of our iMac which waits for us back in the UK!
We use this computer everyday on our trip, taking orders for Famille Summerbelle, writing blog posts, keeping in touch with family (and reality). Perhaps the most amazing thing for which we must give thanks is Apple's incredible screen share on iChat capability.
Every week of this trip we have accessed our computer back in the UK using the screen share on iChat facility. Just this week we were asked by the Australian edition of Vogue for a hi-res product image (which we didn't have) otherwise they couldn't feature our products...only by accessing our computer at home did we manage to get them a picture. We don't have Photoshop on this little MacBook, but were able to use the version on our iMac (and talk to family at the same time!). Amazing.
So thanks a lot Apple. We like what you do.
