In the following video, Microsoft engineer Sean Siler explains how he came to be the real “PC” guy inside Microsoft’s latest advertising campaign. Seeing him like that goes to show that yes, Apple does indeed try to make people think that PC users look like a stereotype.
by Casey Lynn Contributing Writer, [GAS] I was a child of the eighties, and the first computer that my parents bought was a Tandy CoCo, on which my mom taught me to type when I was seven. That computer also jumpstarted my love of videogames, since hours of playing Maniac Mansion revved me up to […]
Microsoft has launched its “I’m a PC” ad campaign last night, and compared to what they have done with their “Seinfeld and Gates” commercials, this ad really drives a point home. It seems that PC users are not at all like what Apple would like people to believe, and some of them can even be […]
While I thought the first ad was really disappointing, this one is pretty hilarious, even though once again, apparently pointless. But wasn’t Jerry’s original show supposed to be based around this kind of stuff, meaning nothing? I guess that the message behind the ad must be about how Microsoft is a people company, and that […]
By Jimmy Rogers Contributing Writer, [GAS] Our own Mark O’Neill clued me in to this little gem. The Register is reporting that the iPhone may not be as secure as once thought. While the new “enterprise” features are supposedly state of the art, there is an easy hack available to bypass one of the security […]
By Shéa Bennett Contributing Writer, [GAS] I’m not an iPhone owner, but I’ve used one before and I’m fully aware that, no matter how well it renders most web pages, Apple do slightly exaggerate its browser capabilities in their advertisements, specifically when it comes to speed and functionality. Well, it’s finally caught up with them. […]
The following document was apparently leaked from Verizon and serves to brief its employees on many of the iPhone’s not-so-shiny particularities. The document is divided into four sections, each covering a different “myth”. Myth #1: The iPhone 3G is now twice as fast, but ONLY where AT&T has 3G coverage. NO WAY! Isn’t that logical? […]
As always, Apple are basing themselves on the ignorance of casual users and technically challenged people to push their systems out in the world. You have to admit though, their marketing campaigns are absolutely brilliant. Gotta give this to them. Videos after the jump.
By Jimmy Rogers Contributing Writer, [GAS] For any of you who have either purchased a new 3G iPhone or upgraded your old one, you’ve probably noticed your iPhone acting up. All kinds of problems have been reported, but personally I’ve experienced: Frequent crashes Lag in on-screen controls Lag in on-screen keyboard (can’t keep up with […]
Haven’t bought an iPhone 3G yet but are planning to do so in the next few weeks? Maybe you should watch the following video first. Hey, you wouldn’t want to have to sell yourself into slavery to keep on living after your purchase right?
Apple’s much-hyped launch of their 3G iPhone today left buyers on both sides of the pond angry, albeit for vastly different reasons. Stateside, Apple appeared to successfully match supply with demand, but many enthusiasts, some of whom had camped outside overnight to be amongst the first to get their hands on Apple’s latest gadget, were […]
Gotta love the irony in this one! So, does anyone here know who reports the crashes of the crash reporter? :) [Via]
