Ed Dale declares the Cold War over!

The always entertaining and insightful Ed Dale of Underachiever Mastery fame, has spent today testing out how well XP runs on his new Macbook Pro. I think the quote below sums up his opinion.

“Load up on Apple stock right now. They are going to sell millions of MacBook Pro’s.”

Ed was my first choice as far as opinions go with this new development, as in many ways he’s a man after my own heart. Everything he wants (and YOU should want) as a marketer, are the same wants I have, so his view is a vital one. Shoot on over and read the rest of his post. While your at it, subscribe to the undies blog, as I think you’ll get quite a few posts about this over the next few days.

Boot to XP on a Mac!

Apple – Boot Camp
More and more people are buying and loving Macs.

Called Boot Camp (for now), you can download a public beta today.

Everything I’d read about this recently pointed to the fact that it couldn’t be done (effectively). And with Vista dropping the EFI standard and sticking to BIOS that looked like our future. But this news comes out of left field and could really be great news for anyone wanting the best of both worlds. Check it out.
