Yeah... They took those words TOTALLY out of context. I swear.

I don't recall saying that at all...

Damn, I hate television...



I was actually trying to pick up the cute blonde reporter "Amber"...

I guess they edited out the pick-up lines.

Context? Context doesn't exist in television. Only the power of editing exists.

if anyone wants to but corporate logos on their cars more power to them, i just don't understand it. a guy in my culinary class has the visa logo on his toolkit and we're never done ripping into him about being "sponsored" etc.

I have one on my Spicer bike. Ugh. It kind of gets drowned out by the other stickers though. I'm not really pro PC at all (I dislike PCs) but I'm pretty anti-mac. Computers aren't meant to be cool!

Mac is the kind of overly slick, overblown, cultural commodity, personal-image-setting advertising I hate. Their products seem alright, but I won't pay for the marketing premium if I hate the marketing itself. That whole Mr. Mac vs. Mr. PC thing. THE WORST! The PC guy is way better anyways. They should just edit the commercial to a PC one "We don't think our farts smell like Chanel 5." Lets not forget the 'think different' campaign, co-opting images of people who 'thought differently' years before mac ever existed.

PS. the best is seeing a passat with apple logo in the rear windscreen parked outside the starbucks with the 4 ways on. Not to pick anyone out of a crowd or anything.

I seemed to have more money when I was young and angry as well. I've been converted from PC to MAC but it took, oh, 13years about. Only with OS-X did the MAC ever really start to stand a chance, now with the Intel chipset it's gonna be a good fight. That Steve Jobs, he's a smart cookie just like his bestest buddy Bill.
