  • "Get a Mac" Guy is a Jailbreaker

    I'm not sure how Apple is going to feel about this.

    As it turns out, Justin Long, star of the popular "Get a Mac" TV spots from Apple, is among us. That is, he's in our "community," if you catch my drift. And while Justin's former bosses in Cupertino may not be thrilled with this revelation, Justin Long obviously isn't just playing a contemporary, cutting edge tech guy on TV. In real life, he's exactly that. And then some.

    During an appearance this week on late night TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live", Long shared a story on the program that involved a personal demonstration (iPhone and all) of a humorous SMS convo that, ultimately, revealed more - much more - than just the funny comments in the chat. During the segment (check out the video above), it was apparent that Long has a jailbroken iPhone (gasp!) as Cydia was clearly among his visible iPhone apps.

    One has to wonder if Apple would have to terminate Long's contract as a result of his "devious" jailbreaking activities - assuming, of course, that the company hadn't already pulled the plug on the "Get a Mac" TV spots. Nonetheless, it appears that the star of "Live Free or Die Hard" wants his iPhone to live as freely as possible. And its a really cool nod to the jailbreak community to see that one of Apple's most public faces is actually... one of us

      I did find the mispellings on his texts pretty funny (on part 3, shown in an earlier post on page 5). Dewin, Beeber, lol. Cool that even some prominent Apple people are among, just pretty cool
      Not to be a conspiracy theorist here but Steve Jobs is the largest share holder in Disney.... More of a joke than serious but who knows?

      Just because there aren't any commercials anymore doesn't mean there can be a contract. Maybe there's a contract where he can't do commercials with anyone else and he gets paid by apple to reject other commercials lol. And about the movies I was being sarcastic of course he'll be in movies that's what I meant when I said "I'm sure he'll have other things to do" he's a f*cking actor!
