    This one is hillarious.  Everytime the Mac guy says the word Vi$ta, PC presses a buzzer.  Its very, very funny.  I saw it at my GF's house on TV.  It completely shreds the "I'm a PC" campaign.

    OMG they let anyone blog these days, there should be somekind of blog police,.

    And I've always been tought; if you say something bad about somebody else, that it says more about you then the other person.

    That's why I don't like Apple,... I'm sticking to Pears and Banana's.

    Mangoes?  Mangoes are teh evil!  Mangoes are only popular because they use illegal business practices to lock the grocers in!
    Mangoes are non-functional pieces of junk!  The government should step into force everyone to use Oranges.
    We will crush all the other fruit!

    I'm starting to hate Apple more and more... It's just ridiculous... And not funny anymore.
    Apple is full of arrogant morons. I think MS should push "Apple tax" concept much more.
    It's more successful than stupid "I'm peesee!".

    If you stumbled and fell down, it doesn't mean yet, that you're going in the wrong direction.

    I think the bs is more that he has a friend at all, I don't buy that, they'd have all topped theirselves from his incessant monotone linux propaganda..

    I think the new Apple ad is pretty funny. And it certainly achieved its goal: everyone is talking about them again.

    I don't really think the whole thing of bad marketing still being marketing - theres no real depth past saying it.. getting fed up of macs commercials isn't going to make me go out and buy a mac.. if anything out of spite I might consider not buying a product of theres thats actually ok.

    Not only spite but if you've got to the point where you don't like the ads, you've got to the point where you realize the ads are bs - and whos going to buy products from a company whos entire ethos is to lie and take advantage of the ignorant?

    "about them"... About whom? I have no idea what you're talking about...
