    Executive editor called an all staff meeting today.

    All reporters got brand new Macbooks. To use all the time. He even encouraged us to take them home this weekend to get used to having them around all the time.

    I will savor this for as long as possible.

    Use spellcheck on your new Macbook before starting a thread ...

    Do they have spell checker?

    Seriously, though, that is pretty impressive.

    Edit: Dammit Claws.

    This definitely elminates MLBAM as the company BRoth works for. I think they just discovered laptops/notebooks in '05.

    Wow, Ogden finally ponied up the dough?

    (That was even hard to type with a straight face.)

    All the editors are getting new Macs, too. But they won't have them up and running for pagination for another week or so.

    It's pretty incredible, that's for sure. It's a big upgrade from my Dell Inspiron that's was top of the class four years ago.

    And here I thought this thread was about someone discovering the Vikings will actually win a Super Bowl in my lifetime. ;)

    I wonder if they can get this clip on the new Macbooks?

    Just give Tarvaris Jackson a few years ... and a few receivers ... and a secondary.

    Whatever, just root for the Wild.

    Meanwhile at my place, I'd be thrilled if we were all issued new rolls of duct tape to hold our laptops together.
