Oh, puh-lease. I don't even know who should be more offended by this: Windows users, who should be more attractive? MacOS users, who should be more attractive? Less than model-hot computer users in general, who don't deserve to seek a quality computing experience? The only aesthetics that matter here are those of the machines and the commercials' irritating imitation home-video shooting style. (What?! This is really a big-budget campaign?! I had no idea!)
How 'bout, "We're better *and* we're not really more expensive. Here's what they're not telling you...."?
And grammatical stupidity at its finest.
Unless a "lot" is used in its literal sense -- e.g. "I'll stop by the warehouse to pick up the lot of power supplies I bought." -- it is a colloquial substitution for "many" and should be treated as a plural.
Dunno about the Sarah Palins, per se, but a true conservative would want a solid investment that pays off over the long term -- like a Mac. It would be the socialist-leaning one that would want to spread the wealth -- to anti-virus companies, repair shops, imitation-iLife sellers -- whether or not the recipients merit it.
OK, Flypod, maybe. It at least *sounds* like iPod. However, unless they're marketing the stand as the PODD-ium instead of POE-dium, no way. Even if they were, a podium is a stand, and that's what they make. Guess we'll have to wait for the iDais instead....
Hey, iMac, you look great. That Jonny Ive stylin' is untouchable! And those iApps? No one can touch you. You are da *bomb*!(Perhaps you mean complement?)
The problem is that media outlets have cut so many jobs that there aren't enough professional journalists to do all the reporting required for solid stories. They are forced to run with what they can get by deadline, which is usually from the best-produced press release. If you want diligent reporting, it takes time and resources, which "news" consumers are ever more reluctant to allow.
Yes, I believe they do, because the revenue is in the bank from Day 1. The two-year spread is merely a legal requirement for reporting the revenue.
