風が吹けば誰かさんが儲かる。2013/02/23

風が吹けば誰かさんが儲かる。
始まりはiPhoneである。
家族が3年前に私と一緒に買ったiPhone4を落として、
裏面のガラスが割れてしまったのだ。
透明のケースに入れていたのだが、
逆にそれが全体に強い圧力になったのかも知れない。
 
2年過ぎているし、それならついでにと
私も一緒に新しいiPhone5に換えることにした。
ネットなどの写真では
背面は黒とグレーのツートンのように見えたので、
ちとダサいかなと思っていたのだが、
実機はグレーというよりはマットブラックで、
古い硯のような質感である。
思ったよりも高級感があり、
むしろモノリス風のこちらの方が私の好みに合う。
 
使い始めてみると、今度は逆にそれまでの4がひどく古臭いものに思えてきた。
以前書いたように、こころなしかスチームパンクなニュアンスが強調されてきたような感じなのだ。
 
さて、新しいガジェットを手に入れて多少浮かれていたのもここまでである。
いざ旧機種のバックアップから新機種に復元しようとすると、私の古いPowerMac G5ではできなかった。
Intelチップを積み最新のOSが必要であるらしい。
このままでは新機種を全く生かしきれないと悩んだ末、最新のMac Proに換えることにした。
 
使用中のMacは確かに古く色々問題が生じていたので、いずれは買い替える必要があったものの、
今年には全く新しい新世代のMacProが発売されるとの見通しがあったため、それまで待つつもりだった。
しかし背に腹は代えられない。
新世代機種を見越して今回は一番下のグレード、クアッドコアのMac Proを買った。
 
新しいマシンはSSDにも換装し完全64bit起動とも併せ、下位機種とはいえあらゆる動作が桁違いに速い。
もっと早くこれに換えておけば良かった。…と多少浮かれていたのもここまでである。
機種世代間の差が大きいためか、Adobe CSなどソフトの多くが正常に動かないのだ。
やむなくAdobe CS6のクラウドサービスにアップグレードした。
 
移行に伴う諸々の処理を一つずつ済ませて、やれやれと一息ついた。…と思ったのもここまでである。
これまでMac上で行ってきたFAXの送受信ができないことが判明した。
USBモデムが使えないためだが、旧機種をそのためにだけ運用するにはあまりにも嵩張る。
いまさらFAX器機を買うのもなんだし、レガシー技術をどんどん捨て去るAppleを呪っても仕方がない。
そこで、古い非力なMac Mini G4をヤフオクで安く落札した。これなら嵩張るまい。
Faxサーバとして現在絶賛稼働中である。
 
はじめはiPhoneを換えようと思っていただけなのに、マシン環境などを全部換えることになってしまった。
「風が吹けば〜」のように奇想天外に展開した訳ではないが、
坂道を転がり落ちるかの如く、次から次へ出費を伴う対策をとらなければならなかった。
結局儲かったのはどの局面でもAppleというオチである。
儲けている会社にさらに儲けさせるとは、私もなかなかお人好しよのうと自嘲するしかない。
なあに、この新しい環境で一儲けしてやる。…と思わずにはやってられない、くっそー。
