Let's face it they're a bunch of morons who would all be fired if I were their boss.

That's like putting up ads for Big Mac with a picture of a Whopper under the "Super Size It" Heading. How the hell did that happen?!
well we obviosly know how it happened but how did they let it happen...all the way to production and on store shelfs?!?!?

I mean good for Apple sure, but it gives you an idea of what kind of idiots work at the the largest computer manufacturer in the world.

I created some cool team logos for MacNN using Windows Paintbrush, but that doesnt make them idiots, does it? Who cares about who uses what for whatever. Its all in the user.

Hey CyberGreg, I have a question about your webpage. How did you make that pop-up window that’s says “PCs are literally a dime a dozen…”? I need to know the proper HTML code so I can do something like that to my page. Thanks for your help!

Anthony,

Pop-up window code:
Put it either above or below the <body></body> tag.

<SCRIPT>
alert("PC's are literally a dime a dozen, but MAC's rule! Thanks for checking out the Apple Stuff page.")

I've got an interesting QuickTime (audio only) of a Microsoft employee happily explaining to a radio talk show host that M$ uses Macs in their graphics department.

Highlights:
"Anyone who has to do anything powerful on a computer has a Mac, over at Microsoft."
"Nobody in their right mind would do Photoshop work on a PC."

Want to hear it? Go to iTools, type in "bojangles" (without the quotes) and click "Open Public Folder." It's only 272K!
