  • Are You a PC? Make your own "I'm a PC" video at the Apple Store
    The Apple Store is the new place to go for PC lovers and fanboys to go and support Windows. Well at least that's the case at the Apple Store Bullring, Birmingham, England.



    Right in front the of entrance to the Apple Store sits some sort of shack covered in Microsoft I'm a PC ads. The box isn't just there to stick ads on to, it is actually a video recording studio where you can go and record your own "I'm a PC" video. If that isn't enough there will be Microsoft patrons manning the booth for the next three days to distract people away from the Apple store and towards the "I'm a PC" booth.

    Here's how advertising works. Apple makes fun of Windows with "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" ads. Microsoft creates random Seinfeld and Gates ads, changes their mind and continues on with the "I'm a PC ads." Apple puts up ads making fun of the "I'm a PC" ads calling the PC a stereotype. Microsoft puts up recording studios to block Apple Store entrances. What's next? Is Apple going to replace the computer handling the video recording with a Mac?

    Anyways I think Microsoft boxes in front of Apple Stores are funny and I'd like to go visit one and make my own "I'm a PC" ad. Has anyone seen these recording studios anywhere else besides England?

      Someone should go into one of those booths and do a video.

      Every time I see these ads from Microsoft and now these booths makes me laugh so hard and makes me think of when i use to use a PC which means Piece of crap that what PC means to me. LOL PC=PIECE OF CRAP

      I hope that this pc add in front of Apple's store will only remind people that are tired of Microsoft. and say to them selves let me go into this Apple store and see what makes these MAC so much fun to use.

      I like to tell you that they dont use windows for POS they have their on iMAC running. I was in the store today and no PC in site. They may have a PC at APPLE's HQ so that they can take it apart so that they can see how not to bulid a PC=PIECE OF CRAP.

      I used PC's for 8 years and since then once i went MAC I will Never go back. these AD's are going to back fire. Not this time.

      Thats so funny, Thats an Idea I'm going to do that my self next time.
      I'm going to say I had a piece of crap and upgrading to a MAC PRO 8 CORE.

And in both cases it's simply because the software is superior for the task at hand (and simpler to implement in a large-scale business setting)
      That would explain why people are Buying MAC, iPHONES, iPODS. I guess what they got you to BUy an iPHONE. LOL

      Two words learnt from all this:








      I'm a PC. And I was just overclocking my Nvidia 8800GTS
      i-this and i-that and I'm better than a PC blah blah blah blah blah blah blah...how about....

      iShutup and do something useful with my computer instead of standing there in my little community and congregating and hating on MS?

      By the way, when it's mac vs PC, it's not Apple vs MS as people like to assume; MS don't make computers. it's Apple vs:
      ASUS
      Acer
      Dell
      IBM
      Alienware
      Sony
      HP
      The list goes on, and on, and on. Or ou can make your own, as you desire.
      If these companies were so bad at making computers as people like to exaggerate, they wouldn't be used. But strangely enough... they seem to get the job done, and they seem to "just work" (apple terminology there)
      PC: "Here's a powerpoint presentation, discussing x,y and z"
      Mac: "Here's one I made on a mac"
      Board Member: "What's the difference?"
      My PC has crashed 0 times in the past 6 months, I've had 0 viruses on my PC since as long as I can remember, and I'm using it to type this. Hasn't collapsed yet...weird.
      Seriously I'm beginning to think that If people could they would try to blame the economic crisis on PC's... it's getting boring; the monotone of this these ads are starting to rack my brains!!!!! Time to be quiet, use your mac, and stop preaching.

      That is funny, but my friends with macs seem to frequent the same websites as me. Maybe they are the only ones.

      I agree with the mac point of view on vista, that is why my wie's computer is still running XP.
      For the average day consumer Apple has there work cut out for them to get to the same price point as PCs. Apple needs a sub $600 machine that has the same hardware specs as similar priced PC.

      I agree mac is better OS but not at the expense.

      Yes, Vista isn't the OS that everyone anticipated or wanted, but it's a lot more useable than people like to admit, out of fear of being flamed on by the uninformed majority...and as time goes on, it's getting better. Runs at around the same speed as my XP installation.

      "iShutup and do something useful with my computer instead of standing there in my little community and congregating and hating on MS? "

      you mean the same way you are hating on apple... You have spent more effort writing all this then other people have on stating their opinions.. so really u make no sense.

      And just because you have had no crashes or viruses does not mean they don't happen. I have had to fix so many of my friends PCs that its ridiculous.

      MAC OSX FTW!!!!!!

      And yea you support apple by buying an iphone buddy!

      Now, who said I was anti-apple? I used OS X nearly every day. But- I don't have an iPhone anymore, and I'm not getting a 3g! What I wrote was a drop in the ocean compared to how many times you hear the "mac is better, I can do this, I can do that" stuff. It's starting to look like owning an Apple product involves taking on an elitist attitude to computing!
