I have a long time friend who’s been a PC user for many years. Ed Rice has lived in Mid Coast Maine his whole life and has spent most of his time exploring the numerous waterways in the area. A few years ago he started a custom charter business which began to really take off. One night he was talking about how he wanted to be able to take advantage of computer technology to run all aspects of River Run Tours and he asked me what the Macintosh had to offer. He soon purchased an Intel Core 2 Duo iMac.
After transferring over data from his old PC to the new iMac and about an hour of “how to” instruction, he was up and running. Captain Ed now runs all aspects of his business on the Mac. From contact management to Keynote presentations, he does it all. He does his own graphic design and uses Pages to layout his advertisement brochures. At the end of the 2008 season he plans on changing his cell technology over to an iPhone.
Captain Ed was visited this past summer by Pontoon Boat Magazine. The magazine flew here to Maine to interview him for a cover story scheduled to be published this fall. He has since been selected to participate in Pontoon Boat Magazine’s annual manufacturer rollout this September in Tennessee. Ed will be testing numerous boats and providing feedback for the Magazine’s 2009 Product Review.
For more information on what Captain Ed and his boat River Runner have to offer, visit them at the River Run Tours website.
It’s awesome to see people so happy and productive after making the change from one computer platform to another. We would like to congratulate Captain Ed on his success and wish him the best for the upcoming years!
