Mac Commercials

And I've had the same PC for the last 5 years and haven't had one problem with it while all my friends with Macs are constantly posting on facebook that there Mac is broken again.

:Chevy_anim:

Hmm that surprises me. I guess they each have their own problems. My University supports PC and Mac and they have twice as many PC's come in as they do Macs for repairs.

well...personally...I have a satellite and live in mountain time, so I record all the shows I want to see in eastern time and then watch them all back to back once the kids are in bed. Suppose all y'all being in eastern time, you don't have that option...but I'd still find a way to do so....something about watching an hour long show in 45 minutes, commercial free.

Well now that I am gainfully employed, I probably should invest in a Tivo. Especially because I have to skip the gym a few times a week due to the TV schedule. I won't miss House or a new episode of South Park.

Yeah, I'm not saying that PCs are better. I don't think they are honestly.

It's just that the commercials piss me off and make me really not want one. This sorta goes along with Geico and Progressive commercials...and those stupid Subway commercials. Every time I hear that 5 dollar foot long song I change the channel.

The funny thing is, it's made Windows do the same thing with their ads.

I disagree. The "I'm a PC" commercials flout their product without bashing Mac

I agree, they're starting to get obnoxious.

You don't make the best stuff in the world either Apple. How about a laptop for under $800? Think you can do that Apple?

We have two apple products in our house: both of which much less reliable than my vista shuttle and linux asus.

Honestly I didn't think it possible that an Ipod touch could freeze up so much.

I'm a pcmac and they all have similar problems.

Did ya jailbreak it? My wife's was locking up a bit so I uninstalled the last app or two that I put on it...seemed to take care of it.

made the decision not to jailbreak it.

Problem seems to be related to the genius playlist feature.

Allow me to give you a little preview.

Ahem...

"Pepsi: Hey, Coke.

Coke: Hey, Pepsi. Aren't you excited? Coke Zero Cherry is coming out. It's going to be the best Coke product ever. I promise.

Pepsi: Where Have I heard that before?

*flashback*

Coke (wearing crocs to indicate it's 2006): Hey, Pepsi. Aren't you excited? Coca-Cola Blak is coming out. It's going to be the best Coke product ever. I promise.

*flashback*

Coke: Hey, Pepsi. Aren't you excited? Coca-Cola with Lime is coming out. It's going to be the best Coke product ever. I promise.

*flashback*

Coke: Coca-Cola Vanilla is coming out.

*flashback*

Coke: Coca-Cola with Lemon is coming out.

*flashback*

Coke: New Coke is coming out. It's going to be the best Coke product ever. I promise.

Drink Pepsi."

Vanilla Coke is the greatest soda ever created and I will fight to the death anyone who says other wise.
