What it is now is basically, I’ll sit on my computer; I basically kind of play the computer as an instrument, I guess you could say. I guess I play the Mac. And how it works is, say – I have a program called ‘Ableton Live.’ And, you know, you’ll open it up, and it’s just blank. There’s nothing there. And then you start.
Fleetwood Mac always take a long time to make a record – you know what.
All of us… anyone that’s been in Fleetwood Mac, as far as I’ve been aware, has been seemingly pretty well brought up by their parents: not goody two-shoes – God knows we weren’t – but there was a level of civility that the lads in the band were aware of, what is over the brink of decency.

Honestly, I can’t survive without my MAC gloss, pigment – sometimes MAC powder. But definitely my gloss and pigment and liner. I don’t do mascara all the time. I do when I wear no lashes. I use the mascara, but when I wear lashes, I don’t always do mascara, because it makes it real heavy sometimes.
I love my fans, and I love my relationship with the fans, but when you’re a performer, and you’re used to being the mac daddy, the main cat, and all of a sudden you’re not that guy anymore, it’s kind of a whole different spectrum and a whole different level.

Not saying that we are realer than most people, but because Chi is so segregated, first of all, we have to be diverse comedians and be able to make a lot of different people laugh. And Chicago comics, we’re OK with who we are in our truth. That stems from Bernie Mac and a lot of other greats who came before me.
The 12 years I was in Fleetwood Mac before were not particularly happy years. I was not in a very good place, psychologically, when I left. I didn’t have a lot of confidence in what I was doing.
Facebook’s data trove is enviable, and its moves into nearly every aspect of our lives – from payment to media, will create even more of it.

John Gruber
In the Mac vs. PC ads, Apple bills itself as the antidote to Microsoft. To love Apple wasn’t to sell out. It was to buy in. Most people use PCs, but Apple has the mindshare.

I did spend a year in high school being obsessed with Fleetwood Mac.
Security guys break the Mac every single day. Every single day, they come out with a total exploit; your machine can be taken over totally.
In my home office, I have two large, 30-inch computer monitors – a Mac and a PC. They share the same mouse and keyboard, so I can type or copy and paste between them. I’ll typically do Web stuff on the Mac and e-mail and chat stuff on the PC.

My parents were always playing records: My mom was really into the Beatles and Fleetwood Mac, and my dad was more Billy Squire, Whitesnake, ’80s hair metal. But I think there’s that crucial point where you become an adolescent and you don’t want to listen to your parents’ music.
With Fleetwood Mac, it’s an amazing chemistry that we have on stage.
It’s very hard to explain to people who don’t program, but the object-oriented programming system made programming the Mac and iPhone so easy.

My first instrument was bass, and the first thing that I remember learning to play that was better than a few notes was Fleetwood Mac’s ‘The Chain.’ If you’re the guy who penned that bass riff, then you should probably be in some sort of fantasy band.
When you care about people’s happiness and productivity, you give them what brings out the best in them and their creativity. And if you give them a choice, they’ll say, ‘I want an iPhone,’ or ‘I want a Mac.’ We think we can win a lot of corporate decisions at that level.

Robert Wise

I have an insatiable palate. I’ll try anything once, with an open mind. However, there is a special place in my heart for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve sampled specialty Mac & Cheese all over the world, but nothing competes with the stuff I grew up on.
If Freddie Mac is unable to raise capital, it could spark a political and financial crisis.
I get recognized by some people in my community, but not a lot. In fact, they would say, ‘What do you do?’ And I would say, ‘Well, I did ‘The Bernie Mac Show.” And they would say, ‘Oh, really? Well, do you know so-and-so?’ And I’d say, ‘Yeah, I hired them. I was the boss!’ They don’t believe it.
One of my favorites was Bernie Mac.
I definitely try to eat a healthy diet, but I am the first person to say I love unhealthy food. I would never tell you I don’t. I love fried chicken or mac and cheese. Do I order them all the time when I’m out at restaurants? No, though I do have one splurge meal a week.
There is nothing like this extended family that is Fleetwood Mac. And I think you have to say, for all the perceived and real dysfunction that there has been, underneath that, there is and always has been a great deal of love. And that keeps pulling us back together.
The launch of iPhone is very possibly bigger than the launch of the first Apple II or the first Mac. Steve Jobs‘s genius is his ability to use technology to create products that define fundamental cultural shifts.
I didn’t want kabobs, Afghan music, and rules that required girls to be carefully monitored. I wanted mac and cheese, country music, and independence.
Azita Ghanizada
I was first inspired to make music by my cousin Oran. He was making music on an old Mac II by himself in his little lab, and I just started taking up after him. He was the first person to put a machine in front of me to work on. He was like my big brother, someone who I looked up to.
I dearly remember the old days… Fleetwood Mac had this one-of-a-kind charm. They were gregarious, charming and cheeky onstage. Very cheeky. They’d have a good time.
There’s a guy on YouTube named Mac Lethal – he spits hot fire.

Bernie Mac don’t sugarcoat.
I think L.A. radio is learning from the Bay. The Bay is a very classic place. Mac Mall, C-Bo, all that stuff, they love their artists, they’re old school up there. My first big concert was playing in the Bay; I played the Fillmore.
Don’t worry, be crappy. Revolutionary means you ship and then test… Lots of things made the first Mac in 1984 a piece of crap – but it was a revolutionary piece of crap.

Yeah, the Mac Life… it’s about sipping some tea, getting together with the knitting circle. You know I like origami, right? That’s how you get to be notorious.
It’s always been about making the best Mac we know how. Among the many benefits are making it easy to use and affordable, with great features.
I have all of the Apple products. Everything I’ve ever written, I’ve written on a Mac. My first computer, my roommates and I chipped in, and we got that first Macintosh – 128K. It had as much memory as a greeting card that plays music.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac buy mortgages from banks and other lenders, providing those financial institutions with capital to make new loans.

Arguments over grammar and style are often as fierce as those over IBM versus Mac, and as fruitless as Coke versus Pepsi and boxers versus briefs.
Jack Lynch
My dad calls me ‘Mac’ a lot, from ‘Mike Tyson‘s Punch Out’ – Little Mac is the main character. I was obsessed. I can still beat Mike Tyson on ‘Punch Out.’

I feel like a Mac store! I have a Canadian iPhone, an American iPhone and an iPad. I’m constantly downloading music to iTunes.
There’s a role for the Mac as far as our eye can see. A role in conjunction with smartphones and tablets that allows you to make the choice of what you want to use. Our view is, the Mac keeps going forever, because the differences it brings are really valuable.
Travis Scott is definitely a big inspiration. Lil Wayne was a big one. Lil Wayne, 50 Cent. Those were my two, like, big ones growing up. Then I got into Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa phase.
Lil Skies
Math was always hard for me, but my dad would come up with ways of making it fun. I remember playing ‘Number Munchers’ on our old Mac… That counts as math class, right?

I set out to have a diverse staff on the ‘Bernie Mac Show.’
Mac Miller is my best friend in the industry.

I’ve always been Mac, so I guess I always will be. I can’t imagine I will change now.
Rachel Shelley
I have a PC because I don’t know how to use a Mac. Actors always have Macs with them, and when I try to use someone else’s, I can’t get the hang of it. It’s very strange; I don’t like it.
One argument against open systems is that they become open to everything, good and bad. Like a Richard Meier skyscraper, the anal retentive, Bauhaus elegance of the Mac does prevent the loose ends and confusion of a less sterile environment. But it also prevents fertility. Apple’s development must come from within.
When I first got to Apple, which was in ’84, the Mac was already out, and ‘Newsweek’ contacted me and asked me what I thought of the Mac. I said, ‘Well, the Mac is the first personal computer good enough to be criticized.’
I was always so jealous of a band like Fleetwood Mac, for instance, where Christine McVie would sing a whole bunch of songs even though Stevie was the obvious lead singer. It added variety to their shows.
Fixing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in isolation, without looking at the big picture, would be short-sighted.
Bethany McLean

Richard Desmond
When I was 12 or 13, the hyphy movement was beginning to bubble. And you had local acts such as the Federation or E-40, Mac Dre, and Too Short that the local radio station would play all the time. You’d hear E-40 as much as you’d hear Jay Z.
When you become successful on the level that Fleetwood Mac did, it gives you financial freedom, which should allow you to follow your impulses. But oddly enough, they become much harder to follow.
The greatness of Mac Rebennack, alias, Dr. John, also known as John Crieux, rests on his command of the musical use of idiomatic expression. Not a technically well-endowed singer, nor a great songwriter, he leaves his mark through the discipline and control he exerts over all that he touches.
I think the only reason people use PCs is because they have to. Mac is the most streamlined computer there is. I started using the Mac in college because I was doing editing, and they were the only computers we could use to do that.
Ruby Woo by MAC is my fav.
The Macintosh having shipped, his next agenda was to turn the rest of Apple into the Mac group. He had perceived the rest of Apple wasn’t as creative or motivated as the Mac team, and what you need to take over the company are managers, not innovators or technical people.
I’m a Mac user. I think it depends on how you were brought up, and I was introduced to Apple quite early. They’re certainly the best for visual stuff and film-directing.

Mariacarla Boscono
The thing is, Mac Miller wrote all of ‘Divine Feminine.’ That was a great album.
Innovation has nothing to do with how many R & D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R & D. It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it.
One of the things about Fleetwood Mac, you gotta say, is that it’s not very often that you get everyone to want the same thing at the same time.
There were so many things of value in the original Mac that it is still recognizable.
Well, Apple invented the PC as we know it, and then it invented the graphical user interface as we know it eight years later (with the introduction of the Mac). But then, the company had a decade in which it took a nap.

My father loved music. He loved Motown and R&B, and my mother loved Journey and Fleetwood Mac, so they were always listening to it and playing it.
Bernie Mac is happy.
You know a date‘s gone really well when she’s happy with nothing fancier than a Big Mac and fries!
It’s a little counterintuitive to people, that doing what people don’t expect ends up being what people do expect. But that is true of Mac.
My father, Dennis Popham, was a very handsome, talented artist, and as my mother always reminds me, ‘someone who had wonderful style.’ He was half Samoan-German, half New Zealander, and their first date was to a Fleetwood Mac concert, which I love the thought of.
When I do my own makeup, I limit my options: I have one Mac eye colour, a neutral shade with a bit of shimmer, plus eyeliner and subtle mascara. I wear a little foundation and put Laura Mercier concealer around my nose, underneath my eyes and on any dark spots.
Between the Community Redevelopment Act, requiring banks to make what I would call very weak loans, and specific quotas that the Congress imposed on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, that created the market demand that really led to the subprime phenomenon.
I love Mac Miller. I’m a big Drake fan. I love Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Bob Marley.
When we toured… I was hungry to take out people like Jeff Beck in front of us; Fleetwood Mac, just before they hit; Heart, just before they hit.
Paul Kantner
One of my biggest influences is Mac Miller, so to follow in his footsteps would be incredible. He’s definitely a big inspiration to me.
As a kid I loved John McEnroe. They called me Mac because, while everyone else liked Borg, I was crazy about McEnroe. I tried wearing headbands and sweatbands, and whooping at people. It didn’t quite work.
Opening a family-style restaurant with comfort food like mac ‘n’ cheese, ribs and burgers has always been my dream.
Bridget Hall
Lipsticks are like socks. I put lipstick on before any other makeup. I use MAC’s Chestnut lip liner, and sometimes I mix two or three shades together.
A Mac PowerBook is a thing to behold.
I got my first Mac in 1984. I’ve got an Airbook, iPad, iPhone, the lot. I love that blend of technology, creativity, and design.
Some makeup companies have really good recycling policies, and it’s worth finding out whether your favourites are among them. With MAC, for instance, you can take any of your old makeup containers into its shops, and the sweetest deal is that, once you’ve racked up six containers, you get a free lipstick or lip gloss.
When I don’t feel like getting ready, just a pop of colour on the lips does the trick for me. I have this fond liking for RUBY WOO from Mac. It’s a Matte red colour and makes all the difference.
A lot of people thought you couldn’t be a top-level athlete as a vegan, but people like Mac Danzig and Jake Shields are proving that’s wrong. And it’s better for me as a performer.
