Microsoft's 'I'm a PC' campaign created with Macs

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Metadata found on Microsoft's creative copy used in its 'I'm a PC' ad reveals that the graphics were actually produced using Macs running Adobe Creative Suite 3. After the details were published on the Flickr photo sharing site, Microsoft scrambled to polish off the embarrassing details last night

Microsoft's new ad features contrasts a "stereotyped PC user" dressed up like John Hodgman in Apple's Get a Mac ads with a number of people who say, "I'm a PC" apparently to affirm that they run Windows.

However, not even Microsoft itself can wean itself off the Mac, as the metadata discovered by Flickr user LuisDS points out. Microsoft was not only using Macs but also Adobe's software in place of its own Expressions Studio, which the company bills as software that "takes your creative possibilities to a new level."

Ok, my iPod went dead this morning and I got home and plugged it in, and absolutely nothing is happening. It's completely blank. It won't turn on.

When I tried that yesterday morning it didn't work, but I tried it again before I went to bed after it had been plugged in for awhile and it worked then. Thank God.

It's official: I'm ordering my silver 120G iPod classic in 3 or 4 weeks.

iTunes new update with "Genius" sidebar. I'm trying this out but not too sure about it. My Desert Island playlists are better than the playlists it recommends!

Apple is well on their way to being supreme douches of the world. I bought a 16gb ipod touch and really like it, then I went to go plug into into my car adapter and get the message - charging not supported with this accessory. Now I have to go out and buy another adapter if I ever want to listen to in my car. Sweet.

And it recommends songs I already have just because the name of the song is slightly different on iTunes.

I hid the sidebar.

Aside from the extra two inches*, what's the advantage of the MacBook Pro vs the MacBook? And FYI - you can upgrade the white MacBook to the same exact specs of the black MacBook and save $100 by keeping the white case.















* size doesn't matter.

I don't know why black is worth $100 more than white, but hey, what do I know.

The biggest difference between the MacBook and MacBook Pro, well, besides how incredibly cooler people with MacBook Pros are, is that the Pro has a much better graphics card - faster & more powerful processor, and dedicated memory. The MacBook's card shares its memory with the main memory, so depending on what you've got open your graphics will suffer. The Pro will also support larger external monitors and can drive both the laptop screen and an external monitor at the same time (another useful feature for photo/video editing).

Thanks. It seems that the advantages are designed for people that use the computer for more than basic internet and document keeping. From an application perspective, they are the same - and that's really what's important to me. If the Pro had the upgraded RAM, CPU and graphics - along with Aperature and Final Cut, I'd look into the Pro. As it is, I'm fine with the regular MacBook. I'm pretty sure I'll get an apple laptop next year, so I'm really looking forward to what they do with the line. I've become an Apple snob, it's awesome.

Heh. My dad bought the original Macintosh back in '84. I've been an Apple snob practically my whole life.
