Miraculously, I managed to post this without the use of a Mac

If I didn't already hate Mac culture and everything it represents (they're the multinational corporation with the indie cred! Sure Bill Gates has the whole "philanthropy" thing going for him, but Gandhi would have used a Mac!), their newest ads would have done it for me.

Seth Stevenson's Ad Report a few weeks back did a good job of summing up what is wrong with the campaign: they're condescending, the Mac guy is unlikeable, and the claims that PCs are hard to use are far-fetched to say the least.

I was pleased to find this Best Week Ever parody that allows the PC user to give a more realistic response to Mac guy.
