    New Microsoft Commercials 

    Just today Microsoft released 3 more TV ads not starting Bill Gates or Jerry Seinfeld. Jerry Seinfeld was “cut” and now it is phase two of Microsoft’s 300 million dollar ad campaign.

    The first two ads with Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld were terrible, at least that’s what I think. I know a lot of other bloggers and YouTubers thought they were terrible too. Personally I think that they were to hard to understand. Ads need to be straight forward, and those two first ads were anything but straight forward. Some people on You Tube thought they were funny. I don’t know, if they were funny I completely missed the joke. I didn’t see how they were funny at all, mainly the first one the first one. The first commercials were terrible.

    Now the second phase of Microsoft’s ads… I thought the second group of ads are much, much, better. The first reason why they are better is, they are short. Just like the “Get a Mac” ads, 30 seconds long. The second reason why they are better is, they are straight forward and tell everyone what they are trying to say. I know they aren’t as straight forward as they could be, but you have a general idea of what they are trying to tell you. The third reason why the second group is better is because of the name. Microsoft has named the new ads “I’m a PC”. I thought that this was a great title! Good job Microsoft! A nice “short and sweet” title, I really like it.

    So what are the new Microsoft ads trying to say to the watcher? I think they are trying to say that you can use a PC anywhere at anytime, that anyone can use it, and it is a computer for everyone. In this ad they show many differnent kinds of people, from jean designers to Obama bloggers to deep sea divers to your everyday american. It also tells you that anyone can use it. Since there are many different people from all different walks of live in these ads it shows people that anyone can use a PC.

    The new Microsoft ads are much better than the old ones, I like them so much more. Bravo Microsoft!

    Operating System Hate, (Mac Side) 

    Everyone who uses a computer knows that there are two main operating systems, Mac OS X and Windows. The fight between the two has gone on for many years and will continue for a very long time. I have decided to write about the two sides and why they hate each other so much. This post will be based on the Mac side and the next will be the Windows side.

    There are many reasons why Mac (or Apple) users hate Windows users or the operating system in general. The first reason which is also probably the biggest is viruses. Everyone knows that Windows will get more viruses than a Mac will. Windows users sometimes say that the only reason this is true is because Windows has more market share. I do believe this is a good point. But I would have to say that Apple is doing a better job with the viruses than Microsoft is.

    Another reason why Mac users might hate Windows is Vista. Almost everyone in the computer industry knows that Vista was a Microsoft failure. I have a computer running Windows Vista, and I have to say that Vista is remarkably slower than XP was. Because people have been noticing this there have been a huge amount of people that have downgraded to XP. The Apple, Get a Mac ads have also displayed this Vista problem.

    The last reason why I think Mac users hate Windows is Errors. Some of you might have seen the Get a Mac ad when PC has all of the errors on the cart. Well I have used Windows and I have gotten some crazy errors in my Windows days. This is a defiantly a big reason for some people who work in businesses, because they can’t have their computers have a fatal error in the middle of a job. Even normal casual computer users just thing these errors are annoying (I know I do). Even though Windows might have worse errors, Mac OS X has some errors too, so don’t think Mac OS X is the most amazing operating system is the best.

    The Windows side should be out soon.
