    Default 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?

    hahaha, this is getting really intense. I think I would fall over laughing if I actually saw this at my local Apple store. Thankfully it's in an outdoor town square so that's not likely - unless Microsoft wnats to block off the street in front of the store for their booth (which they could probably do...)

    you know, looking at this picture a bit more, I really like how microsoft decided to put their booth right on a split in the floor level, so every time someone walks out of the booth and turns left they break an ankle. Genius!

    We need a "I'm a Mac running on PC hardware...quite well at a fraction of a price!" booths around here.

    Wish they would spend the money developing and fixing their overly bloated OS's...both of them.
    Currently, Leopard and Vista are more alike then the two competitors OS's have ever been in the past...and I don't mean the good things.

    the floor is flat with a gray and black triangle design. you are seeing an optical illusion. the booth is not on a multi-tiered floor.

    thats funny. so that latest commercial Apple made about how MS is putting a lot of $ into advertising instead fixing Vista is true then. HAHA im gonna check out Apple stores around me to see if they have those and I'm gonna go in there with my blackbook, use it but i will put my blackbook in front of my face instead. HAHA

    Default Apple vs PC BS
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Apple use Windows OS on their P.O.S. system? This Apple vs PC crap is about as sickening as these endless political ads.

    One thing I loved about MS (well idk, not sure I really LOVE anything about MS, lol) is that they DIDN'T do what Apple does and blatently trash talk the competition... lately I feel like Apple versus Microsoft has become more like a political debate than "friendly competition" Kind of makes me sad to see Microsoft stoop this low. In my eyes doing this seems more like an act of desperation than anything else, which is mostly silly because they still own a vast majority of the market share.
