I really hate Macs. Even as they make advances on some of their technology and put out some decent software (i.e. Mac OS X) I really can’t stand the attitude of the company or it’s supporters. They tend to be very snobbish and buy into this whole elitist “we’re artists not computer geeks” crap when the only real difference between them and Microsoft is that MICROSOFT WON! Sorry, I like healthy competition, but that’s why this machine actually runs something different. Apple’s ads tend to be incredibly pompous and without any wit as they flaunt the ignorance of their users.
I used a PC for years. But it was very difficult. There were like 5 wires that were all color coded and I could never figure out if the green one was supposed to go in the green hole, or the blue one because that was a nicer combination. And then there was all that pointing and clicking and having a second and sometimes third mouse button to wrap my head around. One time it even asked me if I was sure that I wanted to delete a file. I didn’t touch the machine for a week. Now I use a Mac. It’s all in one box so there are fewer cables, although if the CD-ROM drive is on the fritz I have to toss the entire thing in the trash. Hey, at least they only cost about 40% more than comparable PCs. My name is Billy, and I’m a Mac tool.
I could have done better than that, but you get the idea. These people talk about how the computer now matches their drapes or looks pretty in the kitchen. And they seem to have the magic Macs which never crash or hang. Alright, this post has been hanging in limbo for about 2 hours so let me rap it up. The whole point was to put up a link to this incredibly funny parody of those crappy Mac ads. It’s a much more accurate depiction of the Mac users I’ve known.
