Apple blasts Microsoft’s Windows Vista in new ‘Get a Mac’ television ads

Just when we were starting to think they’d forgotten about them, Apple has posted three new “Get a Mac” television ads:

• Podium: In which PC exhorts the sufferers, “Don’t give up on Vista!”

• Boxer: Some people just want a computer that’s simple and intuitive, that works they way they do. The ring announcer’s closing quote is an instant classic, “Actually, my brother-in-law just got a Mac and loves it!”

• PR Lady: PC hires PR lady to smooth over Vista disappointment and downplay Mac OS X Leopard in effort to ward off switchers.

  1. Cool ads…now run the hell out of them!

    I had some stupid cow tell me the other day that Vista was “more Mac-like.”

    How the hell would she know anyway? She’s a PC user!

    Vista does look kinda nice…but that’s all there is to it.

    No substance.
