Why does HP use Macs?
In a commercal hp is trying to show that their handheld pc is all bad and can be used to listen to music. I have looked for a Pocket PC but gave up trying to figure out that everywhere I when to bu one eeryone said it was not mac compatible. But in the commercal she uses a mac to send files to it.

Probably because the mac looks cooler, but probably doesn't work in practice. It's all marketing.

It is marketing but there's something called "Truth in advertising" there's also something called "False Advertising".

You do have recourse against HP if you were denied a refund because your product didn't work with the products they showed it working with.

I was looking for a PDA and later in the month I saw the ad and then said, "Hey, maybe that one will work." The went to CNet and saw that It is not mac compatible. So I got a Visor.
