Take a look at a currently-running Dell ad that MacDailyNews reader “Scotty” pointed out to us recently:
Note the not-so-subtle attempt to evoke the feeling of Apple’s Mac OS X out-of-the-box default desktop. Apple uses this “look” in all of their promotional materials, including PowerBooks. How much has Apple invested in promoting this “look,” so that Dell can paste a derivative of it onto the screens of their garbage laptops? Does Michael Dell really want Mac OS X so badly or does he just want to make his customers think he’s offering the world’s most advanced operating system when all he really has to offer is Microsoft’s Windows XP?
Exactly where is the level where shame is felt from these soulless Wintel creeps or have they just all passed the threshold so long ago that they’ve lost all concept of shame, disgrace, and embarrassment?
