And did so speaking of apple and Microsoft if you want to run both windows and Mac programs quickly and easily without switching device says there is a program for the.
All perfect and joining us now from Washington DC for all things digital was Walt.
Mossberg personal technology columnist at the Wall Street Journal -- date and one around the mall right after she has -- tanning session Walton -- -- making these observations about.
Your industry the technology industry.
I just think -- about dating visiting all the text story yeah.
You know just can't check writing that I -- a lot of list sprint store are the -- -- store -- the Microsoft or an Apple Store tell us about this kicked out all.
You are -- tell us about this parallels H if you can.
OK so here's the deal.
Obviously for as long as we to remember there's been a community people don't love the Mac that has grown quite a lot.
-- have been a community people use windows that's still very large larger than the Mac.
-- but even as Mac sales -- picked up.
You know there still are the key there's still the occasional windows program.
Francis quicken has a much better -- -- on windows your company might have a windows program here's post using you may want to run and on your Mac so.
Has been around for a while it's a program that creates a basically -- -- windows PC.
In software on your Mac and -- -- windows apps run right alongside your Mac apps and what I reviewed this week was a new version.
Just capable of running the yet as yet -- released new windows -- right on your Mac wall.
The new windows AM this is not a review of windows -- but it has touch screen features.
What doesn't work on the parallels a that you would get if you are -- Microsoft only a windows online.
Well -- basically two things.
Macs don't have touch screens at least not yet and so.
Anything that you would do any thing you would do that -- white then.
Control things with your with your fingers won't work but they also won't work on.
The vast majority of vault windows lap -- that people may want to upgrade to windows eight so Microsoft has built in.
Comparable ways of doing it with the mouse or the touch pad and parallels uses all of those so all of features of windows eight.
Can be controlled.
With your touch better your mouse.
Sounds like at the end right while you you think this is pretty much worth it by the -- -- a busy time a year fee every time every day -- of -- launch and another apple event next week so.
That's right time -- personal technology and -- it's very it's very very busy but to answer your question this is eighty dollars.
And I do think it's worth it if you're somebody -- Who's interested in running windows apps alongside your Mac -- and particularly if you're actually don't -- a state of work smoothly.
Didn't crash were quickly didn't slow down my Mac.
They've really done a nice job on this new parallel and.
-- -- really quickly -- you think it's superior still to its primary competitor which is fusion and then boot camp which is on the apple but.
You basically hit you have to go all land on windows where you're using -- Right boot camp the question to reboot to get between two systems yeah I did find -- security -- fusion fusion.
In some years in the past I've picked fusion over parallels but this time.
Fusion crashed on me and day was slower than parallel so I would go with parallels even a fusion is less money.
It was great to see you well -- yes on the -- you know you're like you're welcome to walk the mall with me how many items we can meet up with the Microsoft Stewart -- -- -- -- I Syria I have devices on AT&T Verizon and his -- so -- all over the place.
I think there's many of them who.
Thank you all think -- problem.
