  • I'm a PC!

    For those who don't know, it's Microsoft's counter to Hi, I'm a Mac..

    Very entertaining and funny. :)

    I'm Smokey, and I'm a Vista equipped PC, hence the helmet and elbow pads I must wear 24/7.

        Re: I'm a PC!

        I had to listen to two idiots here in Kansas City on 96.5 The Buzz this past week, talking about how this commercial was a failure for Microsoft and how they didnt understand windows and how much they love their Apples and blah blah blah. The biggest issue was that callers tried to explain to them the issues of Vista SP1 and third party drivers and so on. But neither one of the DJs knew what drivers are or what they are used for in PCs.

        I love the music on 96.5 the Buzz, but I cant stand Lazlo, the guy is a moron outside of radio.

            Novel made a copy of the Mac commercials a while ago. They're reeaally corny, but the point gets across all the same.

              Has it been 3 years since the first "Hi, I am a Mac" commercial appeared in the U.S.?

              I didn't notice those until last year.

              I like the ending: "It feels good to admit it." :p Take that you pompous Mac user!

                  I guess you're right. According to Apple's official website, it started in 2006. Ironically, I do remember seeing the 2006 Christmas TV ad, but last year. Guess they were doing reruns of old ads.

                    According to this source, the "commercials" were done using Mac versions of some Adobe products.

                    I'm seeing quite a few pro-Mac websites having a laugh over this and ridiculing Windows, but they fail to mention that Windows users have to thank for the popularity of Adobe's products. Also, the same products exist for PCs and could have been easily done on one.

                    A good counter and explanation: http://fournerds.blogspot.com/2006/0...l-of-****.html

                    Ironically I took a Photoshop course on a eMac. The thing had a 2 Ghz single-core, 512 MB of RAM, and locked up at least 5 times before I finished creating/editing a large graphic.

                    Either way, I tend to like PCs due to faster hardware and better price-performance ratios.

                    Back to watching more of those funny "I'm a Mac" commercials. :D


                    Edit: Corrected iMac to eMac. Was thinking about the iMacs DePaul recently acquired...

                      PC's empower the public, MACs keep them pacified.

                            Are you trying to say that the PC version of Adobe's products are what made them what they are today? If so, I don't think you could be more wrong. I think that Apple dominates in the graphics industry and pretty much nowhere else (except maybe hippy nerd consumers). Adobe would be no where without Apple Macintosh.
