So my friend came over tonight to help me try and get some info from my old computer onto my new one, and I'll be damned if there are simpler ways to get your info than taking your giant 'puter machine into a Mac store, having some tween with a bad haircut tool around with it for 3 hours and then haul it home.
You just plug one thingamadooby into the other thingamadoodly and you click on the whizbit and drag it into the lollyzoo and poof! It is all there!
I had no idea it was so simple.
But, seriously, it has saved me a ton of time and now I know what to do in the future. I feel like a major techie now, which is like, so fierce.
