Apple's been doing those "banner" adds lately, hyping MacWorld SF. See if you can do better, I'll recap what Apple has done:

7 Day's to go: This one is big. Even by our standards.
6 Day's to go: Count the days. Count the minutes.
5 Day's to go: Beyond the rumor sites. Way beyond.
4 Day's to go: It's like a backstage pass to the future.
3 Day's to go: To go where no PC has gone before.
Since Apple's site will probably have changed by the time most of you have read this, I'll start with 2 Days left to go and edit in Day 3.

2 Day's left to go: It's better than breasts. Well... Almost.
1 Day left to go: iWalk? Haha that's funny!
Day of MacWorld: Introducing... iBreasts.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction.

"iWalk? Is that your best?"

EDIT: Oops, didn't see you already had one similar to that... I thought that was your signature

Being in debt and celebrating a lower deficit is like being on a diet and celebrating the fact you gained two pounds this week instead of five.

I think those of you making comps should realize that apple's marketing team would NEVER let an ad go out with hash marks instead of proper quotes. So PC-user looking!
