iMac G4 design vs. the iMac G5/Intel design

The first computer is an Apple iMac G4. The second one is the latest iMac available: it has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. (This looks almost the same as the iMac G5). 

I know the newer version is a much better computer.  I know that the newer version also takes up less space  and is more practical. But judging each computer strictly for its looks only, I like the G4 better. I think it’s a prettier piece of furniture. Does that sound weird? When I first saw the design of the G5, I was thinking “Wow, that’s amazing how they can fit the whole computer in such a small space.  But it doesn’ t look as cool”. 

In the end, that doesn’t matter, though. I’d much rather have the newer one.

Lullaby versions of rock songs

This may sound weird, but there are these Rockabye Baby!  CDs I discovered by accident on iTunes that are really good! They do lullaby versions of Radiohead, Coldplay, Smashing Pumpkins,  Nine Inch Nails,  Bjork, Metallica, Queens of the Stone Age, Tool, and more… and then traditional rock bands like the Beatles, U2, The Rolling Stones, etc. I haven’t heard all of it yet, but what I’ve heard so far is good. They seem to choose songs that really work. I am thinking about just buying some of these for myself to help me fall asleep at night. I like how the artwork looks like kid versions of the bands’ original artwork.

You can hear 30 second previews by going to iTunes. Type in “Rockabye Baby!” as the artist.
