Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Legal Nurse Consultant BlackBerry® Users Can Now Have a Mac Attack!

Those of you who know me well know that my supposed antipathy to Apple® computers is an act. I think they’re some of the best computers on the market and some of the easiest to use. In the old days of steam-driven hard drives, there wasn’t much interoperability between Mac OS® and Windows® operating systems. Well, as time has rolled on my CLNC® amigos – things have changed.

Today with Microsoft® Office: Mac, any Mac user can enjoy the fun of Microsoft Office without the pain of the Windows operating system. You can have your cake and eat it too! Or should I say have your Apple? So, I fully recommend Macs to those Certified Legal Nurse Consultants who want one for their business. You just need to be sure that any other software you may want to use is Mac-compatible before you invest your life-savings in an Apple computer.

Now to the real purpose of today’s blog. I’ve heard that some Apple computer users out there aren’t on AT&T and haven’t adopted the iPhone® as their smartphone of choice. Some of you are still slaved to BlackBerry phones. If you’re one of those Certified Legal Nurse Consultant BlackBerry users who wants to sync their BlackBerry to their Apple computer, just visit the BlackBerry website and download the BlackBerry Desktop Software for Mac. This will give you the ability to sync your contacts, calendars, notes and tasks with certain Mac applications. Now you can stay with the mobile provider of your choice and keep your smartphone up-to-date.

There you have it – you can have an Apple and a BlackBerry at the same time and we can all get along!

  1. If you need to run a program on your Mac that is only Windows compatible, you can partition the hard drive on the Mac with a program called Fusion or another one called Parallels. This will allow you to run Windows on a certain portion of your Mac. Then any programs you have for your CLNC® business, such as any CaseSoft programs, that are only Windows compatible will still run and be usable with your Mac. Easy solution and not very expensive.
