AppleFriend is a bit of a one-man show.
About Regis Laborie
Research, script, lights, decor, sound, filming, web design/coding and ‘acting’ are all performed by Regis Laborie from his home studio in Lake Oswego, OR.
Regis is a French-native (as you could tell from the funny accent…) and moved to the US in ’97. He particularly loves technology when it fosters human qualities such as creating or sharing, or simply betters our lives by furthering our discoveries and helping us keep in touch with our loved and geographically dispersed ones.
After meeting his American sweetheart (now wife) while she was visiting his college in France, Regis embraced Internet technology very early on as a necessity in order to communicate across the pond more efficiently and affordably and make the seven-year long-distance relationship viable.
Today, and now that he lives in the US, much improved technology and faster networks allow him to communicate via videoconference, photo-sharing and blog with his parents and sisters back in France.
Although he has nothing against Windows or Linux environments, Regis admittedly drinks from the Apple Kool-Aid. He likes their products because they are elegant in both design and simplicity, very carefully thought of, and mainly designed for all kind of ‘everyday’ people, not just technology-enclined ones. Being surrounded by those ‘everyday’ people, he often marvels at the potential that those products have unlocked for them.
