Even so, it's a good thing the only thing they have to worry about is uploading Youtube videos, as opposed to worrying about random driver crashes from their windows environment


For real though, that was a crude generalization.



2012 -- THE END IS NEAR!!!
You must not know how to use a windows computer than, I haven't had a driver issue or BSOD for well over 5 years.(outside of crashes from overclocking)

Apple has a great marketing team, you gotta admit that.

What I'm getting out of this:

"The fact that our hardware is cheaper than yours doesn't matter, because our products are shinier and more fun to dick around with."

Apple needs to realize that some people buy a computer because they actually need to get **** done.

Watch the fine print at 13 seconds. Everyone does this. Moto's advertising is some of the worst I've ever seen, right behind MS.
They don't advertise the Motorola in this country, but that commercial sucked. Like, sure, if I want a tablet so I could be like the dude in District 9, maybe... But then, the greasy actor dude isn't as awful as the tuna sandwich eating molester in the Win7 commercial.

In fact, I don't thinki I have ever seen a good tech commercial - they are generally worse than car commercials.

They should have to show the real deal - like force Apple to show how slow the loading of applications is, or that it can't do Flash. Or just do it like beer commercials - don't show the devices at all, just show some hot chicks playing beach volleyball...

MS still takes the title, simply because their ads are so consistentlyb awful, like the chick that gets turned on by tv while sound effects from Kung Fu Panda is playing in an airport.

I have no idea what to call a MBA - it has no optical drive, so it might be a netbook - but it is also giant albiet thin, like a desktop replacement - but it has weak video - so it is more of a thin but huge and hyper-glossy Safari terminal with little actual purpose.

I was just trying to think of a single MS commercial that didn't suck...I honestly can't do it. Have they ever had a single good one?!?
Nope, not in over 30 years. Even their print ads sucked - either showing things their offerings couldn't do, or showing off Bill Gates terrible but quintessential geek haircut.

But then, Intel was even worse - because they didn't even try, outside of using the Blue Man Group. Now that commercial made me want to see the Blue Man Group - but their processors were still overpriced, riddled with quality issues, and awful.

Yes thats right, Steve Jobs will mollest your children through their Ipad screens and then fly away with your house.

Except that Apple cloaks the AIDS underneath bloat, eye candy, and pictures of album covers...

I will ALWAYS have a PC so long as they exist. I can't speak for everyone but I can say that without doubt for myself. Though I can't really say I'd have a right to speak against Apple in this situation as I haven't touched an iWhatever for 10 years. When I can play every game in my Steam library on a Mac, I'll consider buying one if they drop the price to compete with PCs. Till then, my Sig Rig will get lots of love'n.

If you think you're funny or clever, you could not be more wrong. How about offering something constructive to the conversation.

They do. Most Mac users will tell you they buy Macs because they want to get stuff done. I've had many an argument with people at work who want to keep using a Mac, which we don't allow anymore. To them, Windows is a mess and gets in the way of them being productive. In many ways they are exaggerating, but no more than idiots who compare Macs to hookers.
