Email heaven and Apple Care...

I claim to be a Googlevangelist, and in the last 24 hours I have found email heaven... I have consolidated 5 email boxes into one Gmail account, and it is working great. The key to Gmail is the "archive" feature (believe it or not I have never used that before)... It allows you to save the email without keeping it in your inbox. I am now done with Thunderbird. I have a few more email accounts to consolidate, but at this point I am extremely happy with the results...

So, today Apple released new versions of the MacBook and MacBook Pro... I called Apple this afternoon, and while they can't upgrade me to the latest version they are going to ship me a memory upgrade (which was the biggest let-down for me). I am happy with the resolution to my call, and my first Customer Care experience with Apple was very positive!

You could still use Thunderbird for IMAP access to Gmail, or use Apple Mail (I use Mail). IMAP access to Gmail actually still comes in handy and will, I believe, until the get Google Gears working with Gmail. I use it to get an offline copy of things I know I'll need when WiFi isn't readily available.

Congrats on the day though--quite a set of accomplishments.
