I have a stereo in my bathroom. I also have one in my kitchen, my family room, and my bedroom.
I have a television in my family room. I also have one in my bedroom.
I have a MacBook Pro. I also have an iMac. I also have a P.C.
I have an iPhone. I also have an iPad.
I have a car.
And it has taken a lot of time and even more effort to do so, but I’ve finally got my life perfectly synced.
My TV in my bedroom is synced with my iMac. So is the TV in my family room. This makes it so that I can watch any movie I want at the touch of a button. I spent almost eight months turning my movie collection into digital files, and now I can watch any movie I want as easy as hitting play on the remote. The movie then shoots to my television over wi-fi.
My MacBook Pro is synced with the TV in my family room. It is also synced with my iMac. So, from the comfort of my sofa, I can work on my laptop via my television. I can also work on my iMac since I can control it from my MacBook Pro. Because my keyboard and mouse are bluetooth, there are no wires to worry about.
On my iPhone I have software that connects to my Orb music players. Oh, I forgot to mention those. Hooked to each stereo, is an Orb music player. It runs through the wi-fi which connects to the iMac. This makes it so that from anywhere in the house, I can turn on any stereo in the house, and play any song I want. I can also turn on any Pandora station. I can also turn on any Sirius Satellite station. I can control the volume. I can do just about anything with it.
Now, I like my tunes no matter where I’m going. My car has built-in bluetooth, which automatically connects with my phone. That means I don’t even have to take it out of my pocket. Instead, I can use voice command or the LCD touch-screen to control everything. I can play Pandora. I can play anything from my computer at home. I can play anything from my phone. When I turn off my car, it all disconnects automatically.
But you see, it’s not just music and movies. I have apps on my iPhone that sync with my iPad. My shopping list. My to-do list. Even certain games I play. I never have to worry about updating any of it.
My email, contacts, and calendar are all stored in “the cloud.” That means I never have to worry about losing them, I never have to worry about backing them up, and I never have to worry about syncing them. If I add Sally Sue into my iPhone, it shows up on my iPad, my MacBook Pro, and my iMac. Same goes for Jim Bob over there.
And let’s not forget my PC. Sure, I have most everything Mac, but sometimes a PC is just better. In fact, a lot of times it is. So, I have that connected to everything else. I can control my PC from the MacBook Pro, from the iMac, from the iPad, or even on my iPhone. In fact, I can be on the other side of the world and control any of it, any time, and all with a gadget the size of a candy bar.
Gosh… am I a super nerd, or what? I don’t know what’s nerdy, that I have it all that way, or that it all makes perfect sense to me.
How about you? Anybody else live a nerdilicious life that’s perfectly synced? Or have I taken it a step beyond?
