Do you use a Mac or PC and why?

Yes, I use a Mac or PC, because my abacus doesn't have much memory and isn't any good for photo editing.

‘World’ focus

Majestic42, try scanning this morning's LJW (March 28, 2011).
Page 1A - nothing but sports. Same for pages 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A, 6A, 7A, and 8A.
More than 2/3rds of page 1B: Sports.

The fail's on you, Majestic42.

‘World’ focus

Majestic42, there are plenty of other things besides sports that fit the term LOCAL. With bigger long term impact than a basketball tournament. What part of that don't you understand?

‘World’ focus

I agree with the letter to the editor. I subscribed to the Lawrence Journal-World, not the Lawrence Journal-Sports - a decision I'm reconsidering after this past week. I understand the paper's shift to a more local focus, but even local non-sports news (such "minor" issues of little importance, such as $50 million state cuts to education) was relegated to relative obscurity. It is like subscribing to Time or Newsweek and finding Sports Illustrated delivered instead. That is not saying that Sports Illustrated is bad - if it is being sold as (and under the name) Sports Illustrated. To deliver a paper with a primary focus on sports, when the name and history have implied a broader focus (Lawrence Journal-World) is a bait and switch.
It leaves me looking for the off switch.
