Apple and PC the Bean Counter

Apple has launched a new “Get A Mac” television commercial, poking fun at Microsoft’s high budget for advertising. It’s a poke at the recent $300 million campaign featuring Bill Gates, Jerry Seinfeld and many “I’m a PC” partners. PC opens his dialogue by allocating wads of US currency to advertising, advertising and advertising, with just a small amount given to fixing Vista. With all the frustrations Vista is causing Microsoft customers, PC has to take drastic action, by investing in advertising and more advertising.
