"i'm a MAC...and i'm a PC"

Postby Dan Lambskin » Tue Jun 13, 2006 8:23 am

anyone else really hate these commercials?

the one with the douchbag college student who's like "look at me, i'm a Mac...look how cool and easy to use i am. I'm TO THE EXTREME!!!"...unlike that nerdy PC. all my programs are real easy to use, mostly becasue there are only 2 of them

...and i'm a PC. look how nerdy i am. only fat nerds like me would buy a PC...oops...i crashed.

now i'll agree Mac's are more stable and better for certian things, but these commercials are so lame and pretentious i would never buy one on principle alone

DOWN WITH MACS

I wouldn't say I hate them, but I disagree with the principle of the one that argues Macs are better because there aren't as many Mac viruses.

The reason there aren't many viruses that infect Macs is that it's inefficient to even write a virus for Macs since there just aren't that many Mac users out there.

If there was a 50/50 split between PCs and Macs in use in America, there'd be a 50/50 split in which platform viruses infect.

So they want more people to use Macs. But if the commercial works, they're going to have to go back and say, "well that was only true when noone had a Mac. Now that everybody does, yeah - there are plenty of viruses."

Here's my question - do you people not own remotes? Why are you still watching commercials?

For goodness' sake, invest in TiVo or DVR!!! :-b

I'm a militaristic PC user who married a MAC-lover and has since converted her.

That said, I think the commercials are funny.
