Beach Ball

GeekLeave a Comment

With all the positive hype on Apple today after a positive quarter (go stock), I wanted to poo poo it. What’s the deal with the beach ball? This weekend I was using my wife’s iMac G5 for an extended period. I was doing some iMovie, iPhoto, web surfing, and more. I constantly get that freaking beach ball. Maybe I like to multitask but I hate being constantly forced to sit there. Drives me nuts.

My desktop computer is going on 5 years right now and its slowed down but I don’t get the hourglass nearly as much as I see the beach ball.

Do other power users see this all the time? In the back of my mind I have been thinking about this Mac with Parallels running Windows for my next setup later in the year. But I bet I will see more beach balls.
