    yeah, but I'm pointing one out in particular. This is the kind of switch ad I've been looking for. Cold and hard with some pizazz

    Cool. I used Windows for 10 years (and never thought to hate macs... i was simply taught they are perverted) as well but all I can figure out of his accent is that he sounds American (not British) ... (and yes, the last time I thought someone was from NY he was from Cupertino... tragic)

    He's da bomb. Anyway I took some time to view the other switch ads and I must say that a few of them looked pretty warped... Hamilton Morris, Jeremiah Cohick... shudder

    Yes. Macs are perverted.



    "You are to be an architect. And you have to think engineer friendly. The Macs suck. And Archicad suck. They are only for stupid architects who can't use autocad. And who can only draw with Macs. Macs are only for stupid. Macs are perverted. No one uses them. Think engineer... they will know and understand only autocad. So don't be a pervreted little architect. Just use Windows. Use Archicad. Do those 2-3D drawings with Autocad. Think engineer."



    (yes, the profs who kept saying that are architects. but they think engineer)

    I like DJ Qbert. He must say "scratch" in there about ten or fifteen times. He seems like a funny guy. Tony Hawk looks all uptight and weird.

    I can't get the damn page to load, you'd think a keynote was on or something. The rest of the personalities work fine, but not the new ones.

    I love Archicad and I totally left Windows behind in 1998 when I was hired by an all Mac all Archicad firm. I never looked back.



    Great to see another Archicad architect out there.



    Cheers!

    Man, that guy's "I've hated Macs my entire life" comment sounds familiar. Reminds me of those dam editors at Maximum PC. I don't mind it when knowledgeable people slam Apple, but when stupid people do it for no apparent reason it pisses me off.



    This guy seems sort of obnoxious, but I guess he's on our side now. I probably would have wanted to kill him 3 months ago.



    Oh and one more thing:



    Anyone else love the umbrella guy? "That's why I'm the only umbrella manufacturer left in the United States." Where does Apple find these people? <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

    I think he's great. He says "I'm an IT director" with such... flair. I can just imagine him giving broken computers a rap with his fist to fix them.



    He's so New Jersey that it's not even funny.



    "Aaaaaaaaaay."

    He's my favorite of the new crop: The entreprenurial pink teddy bear.



    More to the point, it's nice to see someone say they're running a factory on Macs. That's not exactly niche work for the platform.

    finally,



    wow that I wonder how many connected guys are gonna spring for macs after seeing that commercial? Maybe Apple will have a NY/Chicago store in a van too?



    <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />



    Pretty sad. Ellen still has the best commercial, unfortunately (for her) it has unleashed a gagle of pot-heads and pedophiles from arounf the world on the hapless teen.

    If I was in a switch commercial, this is how it would go (just happened to me):



    I was setting up a wireless network for a client and I figured it would be easy. I was able to connect my PowerBook wirelessly to the internet in about 10 minutes. Well it turns out the client was using a piece of sh*t Gateway laptop with Windows XP Home. Three hours and a bottle of asprin later, the computer still isn't connected wirelessly.



    The world would be such a better place if everyone had a Mac.



    My name is Brandon, and Microsoft can shove it.

    This commercial reminded me of why I hate:



    (a) the Tri-State area, and

    (b) the idiocy of the IT industry, that gives clowns like these high-paying jobs just because they went to a local community college (the kind that advertise during Jerry Springer) and got an MCSE. Remember, he said he "hated Macs," so we can assume he was a standard, Mac-hating MCSE moron when he got the job he now has.



    Ugh.
