I’m a PC . . .
By now I’m sure you’ve seen at least one of the commercials advertising Mac’s. If you haven’t, check them out on Apple’s website. Some of them are quite funny. These ads have been running since sometime in 2006.
Microsoft, in yet another display of how they lag behind in pretty much everything, decided to run similar ads this year entitled “I’m a PC”. Yes, they’re copycatting. And not only that, they haven’t put any ads out there at all until this year. The only thing they could come up with is something that mimics their competition. Wait, wasn’t that what Vista was all about with Aero and gadgets? Don’t get me wrong, it’s pretty and all, but Mac already did it.
Anyway, the point of this post is to tell you all how clever I am. Well, to me, I’m clever anyway. I got an email in my Windows Live account from Microsoft. It was basically along the lines of them wanting me to tell the world how great PC’s are by becoming part of the “I’m a PC” ‘movement’.
So I decided to tell everybody how great the hardware is..but I’m not using Microsoft. All the site allows you to do is put in your name, and it’ll let you complete the “I’m a PC, and I . . .” sentence. So I just entered “run Ubuntu”.
After I submitted everything and released my photo for public use and all that jazz, I got a note saying it would take them a day or two to review my submission and I’d get an email then. We’ll see if it makes it out the door… 🙂
