Check out the 'network' ad, especially.

Something about that ad struck me as horribly wrong, and it makes me feel really bad about myself. I don't want a mac anymore. <:(

You mean that air of pretentious sense pseudo-hip superiority that the mac fanboys have been generating for years? Yeah. It's what always turned me off. And here I had thought it was finally starting to wane. Ah well.

It isn't as bad as it used to be, and let's remember one thing: there are just as many snobby Windows users out there. However, since there are a gazillion more normal Windows users, you don't notice as much.

Plus, thankfully the Linux folk have made us Apple fans look normal. *heh*

The difference is of course that windows doesn't use that attitude as their marketing strategy. They don't need to. In advertising, #2 has always taken pot shots at #1 while it would be foolish for #1 to even mention their competitor in their ads. Coke&Pepsi McDonalds&BurgerKing Windows&Mac ad nauseum.

Pepsi rocks Coke's face, but Dr. Pepper pees on both of them, just to make sure everyone knows.

Wendy's is the best burger place.

You know..some people just over analyze useless stuff. Such as a marketing campaign. Or a book / movie about a crackpot painter.

Apple just released the MacBook today.

And they KILLED it for me by putting a GLOSSY screen on it.

WTF?
Does it make you happy you're so strange?

See, I've been jealous of the PC laptops with the glossy screens. Of course, I've never used one in a real-world situation, so I don't have experience with the supposed problems with them.

The new MacBook is very tempting, though. I was expecting a Core Solo, but no, it has a Core Duo. I don't know if I want one of these, and then have a laptop and a desktop, or just get a MacBook Pro and get rid of my iMac.
