Mac -vs- PC
Mac vs. PC ... You've seen the Mac ads on television, where Mr. PC ends up looking like a goof? Well, here's an underground reversal that had me giggling. You'll find it funny too!
You've seen those Macintosh ads on television, where there's a guy that represents a Mac computer and a guy that's supposed to be a PC? Clever, for sure! Well, here's a different spin on them and they're a tad in PC's favor! (An underground backlash, if you will).
Interestingly enough, after finding these videos, I did a quick search for "Mac vs PC" on google.ca and what did I find as the number one entry? APPLE! But the funny part is that they list TEN reasons to get a Mac. (If you go to the site, they list SIXTEEN reasons. Can't they count? Not that more isn't better, but why say 10, when you supposedly have 16?)
Honestly, I'm not a die-hard PC fan. I've had my share of problems with Mr. PC and I'm not married to a brand. In fact, I nearly considered getting a Mac for my last purchase. OSX is cool. The ability to run UNIX and Windows. Sweet. But for some reason, Mac seems to hold their technology a tad too close to their chest, which is why I find this video so humorous.
I hope you do too!
More humor on the next page ...
Which is better? Isn't that what it's all about?
I don't know. Is it like choosing a Ford or a Chevrolet? Or is it a Cadillac or a Yugo? Honestly.
If you're looking for opinions, you can find LOTS. One place to try is Epinions.
HEY ... I'm all for giving the Mac a try. If anyone wants to pony up a donation, I'm all ears. Just make it a BIG Mac, cause I've got an appetite for computing!!
An lastly, not AS IF this is the ultimate comparison, but as of 2003, the Forbes 400 (richest people in the U.S.) had Bill Gates at #1 with a net worth of $40B and Steve Jobs was #49, with a net worth of $5B. While I'd LOVE to have EITHER balance in my bank account, Bill's about 8X better off than Steve. Luck, happenstance or maybe a better game plan? Maybe Mr. PC is eight times better than the Mac dude?
Either way ... as Popeye says ... "Eye'am what Eye'yam" (or ... it is what it is).
In any case ... SOMEONE loves PC!! (Otherwise these videos wouldn't exist)!
