I’m in a genuinely positive mood this evening, partially because dbushell.com survived another automatic WordPress update* but mainly because my MacBook Air arrived today!
Since this is the first laptop I have ever owned I’m not going to write a comprehensive product review but I’d like to point out a few things that are brilliant:
The multi-touch pad works amazingly […]
I’ve written a little web design article for Base Creative.
