I’m a PC (not)

Sorry, my PC-favoring friends, but to a Mac user, this is a hoot.

Did you read the article? Of the reasons they give for being Mac fans, only one has to do with a Mac. Pharrell Williams owns an iPhone (not a Mac), and Depak Chopra merely said that iPhones were "entertaining and harmless" in a column on nuclear weapons.

Very, very poor journalism.

One can only imagine the new ad that could emerge from Apple, playing off this event. ( http://www.apple.com/getamac/ads/ ) Perhaps "PC" will come out stuffed into a t-shirt and jeans? Or holding a sign that says "Buy a PC" but it's made from a lot of little Apple stickers? Should really be hilarious.

I found the movie "Pirates of Silicon Valley" to be well worth watching, BTW. And fitting; Bill's gang is still trying to "borrow" its way to success.

Samuel X

I'm not terribly surprised. Standard trichotomy is thus:

Mac OS: Graphic Design and related
Windows: Jack of All Trades
Linux: Programming and related

So... they used machines that are best at art projects to make a commercial. Makes sense to me.

Why am I not surprised. ;)

LeeQuod - get out of the 20th century. Mac OSX is a Unix-based OS, so even though they do excel at graphics/design, they also excel at ANYTHING that's thrown at them if the software is there. Good grief, old FUD from yester-year. Just check here:

There are business, science, education & creative pro sections highlighting the cutting-edge things people do with Macs. Unlike the "I'm a PC" commercials which just really say "I'm an average joe with the other tens of millions out there," Mac users are going out and doing things with their Macs.

Er, eric, I think you're trying to address Samuel X (since LeeQuod was, in his joyful way, sympathizing with Apple)?

But other than that, Mac users get stuff done only when they're done their lattes at Starbucks. :P


LeeQuod

Yes indeed, eric and SBK, I'm into penguins and leopards. (Linux hardware and software is significantly cheaper than Macs, so I'm doing my bit to stabilize the economy. But I really like what I see in the Apple store.) And were it not a business necessity to work with it, I would certainly test "defenestration via infinite regress" (by throwing Windows out the window).

Hey, Gina, how's your Mac this morning? :-)

Plus, there are two - no, three! - hilarious new ads here, "V Word", "Bean Counter" and "Bake Sale": http://www.apple.com/getamac/ads/

After Windows users download the latest patch (which might help their computers stop smoking ;-) ), they may be motivated to join you, G.
