My favourite Love Song Maybe Im Amazed

This song is one of my favourites. I think it is everything a great love song should be, passionate great melody and kick ass vocal. I give you Paul McCartney Maybe im Amazed written about his wife Linda and recorded on his first Solo Album McCartney in 1970. This version is from a single from his live album Wings Over America which was a top 10 single. The video is from Rockshow coming to Bluray and cinemas very soon.

Superman and Star Trek epics coming very soon

2 epic Trailers Superman and the new Star Trek what a couple of months it will be. Both will be in 3d and large chunks of Star Trek were shot using Imax Cameras a bit like the 2nd and 3rd Batman films.

I have loved Superman since I was a kid, who doesnt want to fly. The disaster that was Superman returns looks to be forgotten by the new Man of Steele film. Its looks great judge for yourself.

These films are pure escapist stuff. For 2 hours forget your troubles and be taken into a great adventure.

Greg the Macintosh IT man


A couple of weekends ago my brother bought a new Mac. A gorgeous 21.5 inch quad core Mac.
What I wanted to touch upon in this post is the setting up of the Mac. He has bought this Machine to run as a Business and personal machine. Through doing the setup I have discovered some things I just love.

The setting up of a business and personnel account on the Mac is an essential and very easy thing to do.
I have installed Microsoft office for Mac. I dont mind Outlook for Mac. I know I might get screamed at for saying something good about Microsoft but as an all in one app for email and business tasks it cant be beat. Well maybe it can but I haven’t seen anything better.

For the business side of things the contacts will sync via google into outlook and into his android phone via a 3rd party app. There he will be able to access email , tasks calendar from his Outlook whilst on the road.

The new iMacs WOW they are thin. Some people might not like fact that the optical drive has gone. But ask yourself this when did you last burn a DVD I know I haven’t in a very long time.

The screen is also amazing. It has fantastic viewing angles and is a full 1080p LED panel. Did I mention? Its fast its very fast. Apps snap open quickly , logins load quickly everything has a great feel.
Nice one apple including a wireless keyboard and mouse as standard.

All in all a seamless setup. I myself run a Quad Macbook Pro but I have to say I have major lust envy over this iMac .

My next Fuji Lens for my Xpro1 55-200mm

With the announcement of the first zoom lens for the Xpro1 coming tomorrow. This is the lens I have been waiting for. Fuji have managed to keep the side down and keep it light reports say.

Fuji 55-200 zoom lens

At 699 is very reasonably priced and also has image stabilisation . If this lens turns out to be as good as the other in the range it should also be very sharp. I intent to use it for portraits and as a travel zoom. A preorder will go in as soon as they open. Join my 35mm 1.4 – 18-55mm f2.8 and 60mm macro.
