Those where not major technical issues (ie crashing), it`s was really just a few people who coulnd`t speak well.

The submitter sounds like a republican trying to defend Bush by saying "well Clinton got a BJ and lied about it."

iTunes 7 is actually awesome when it works :)

"I prefer PCs to macs simply because i find the PC interface easier to use, since i was basically brought up on that."

That`s what I have found too. Last year at school I was using a Mac in the sound studio and it was all so new. The machines are beautiful, but so hard to use when you`re used to Windows.

"Your active X controls probably are restricted...that was the problem with mine.."

Ok thanks!:) Do you know how to change these controls? I`m hopeless at all this. Is it in tools_options? <i`m on windows>

I`m guessing nobody here has seen the microsoft CES keynote from 2004(?) I believe with Conan O`Brien. If you want to see a master of zen, a man`s heart you can not increase the slightest bit, the sheer will and testitude to bring down all of mongolia, then watch Bill Gates when a Windows error occurs. He will sit there as if 18 nude female mud wrestlers just invented the orgasm. That man wouldn`t move an inch if an armed Osama Bin Laden showed up on stage with a truckload of nuclear warheads. You could ignite thermite on that man`s head and he will not so much as give you a glance.

Bill Gates is a king among therapists.

"It`s pretty AWESOME when it works..." Isn`t that the story of mac`s life? All or nothing? "Yeah, I`m a Mac. I invented the first PC, but still can`t seem to get it working..." SOOOO Humiliating!

I just loved the GHz part I run at 2.6 GHz on a 3 year old PC and I know it is outdated yet they talk about 2.5 like it is the newest thing in computers.

they are both better depending on you want. apples werent made to be good at playing games, they were made to look good and have high resolution. that is why it crashed.

It`s cool that they just go with the flow and don`t get stressed. Although I am annoyed with Apple`s claim that anything that is defective with their technology is not their responsibility. I`ve got an iPod Shuffle, it`s buggy, and I can`t hold them responsible for it. But they`re pretty confident people.

"It`s awesome when it works!"

classic.

Mainly that was ppl not apples screwing up, and take it from someone with a pc desktop and apple laptop; my apple has basically never messed up, my pc on the other hand i`ve had multiple completely unrelated problems at once

I agree with natkaz though, GO COMMODODORE 64, WOOT!!

and about half of them were just him joking and then people laughing...
I don`t get why people still think that pcs are the best I mean, it`s just common sense, if one product looks like it`s 5 years behind the other one, the one 5 years behind is worse, NOT better.

Notice how on all the pc screw ups the system really crashes, and not just the person accidentaly clicking the wrong thing.

Nice video...^^

"On another computer note, if any techno-savvy people read this, please help me - adobe flash player isn`t working, but when I go to the website it tells me it`s already installed. Driving me crazy!!! Anyone know why that might be happening? Thanks"

Perhaps it was the "operator of the System", rather than the Operating system. Oh well, it was definitely both.

"NOT messups
ACCIDENTS
not flaws in the operating system, but wrong user input."

Do you happen to work for them? You basically said "Oh, the system works absolutly flawlessly, just the people behind it dont know what they`re doing".

Somehow I doubt clicking on Quake III, then clicking Single Player and waiting for it to load is wrong user input.

Macs are awesome firewood though.

I just feel like all the OS`s are competing way too hard. Then we get buggy crap instead of solid systems..

Apple screw-up? Just look at the new iTines 7. Buggy as hell, but I bet it`s pretty amazing when it works.

Yeah, ostracod, but if the system is so great and so intuitive, then why the accidents from the people whose job it is to laud the product? Fact is, as tezzanator says, it all depends what you`re after...

Ah, the golden words of the Mac user:

"It`s awesome when it works!"

Watching him wait for Quake III was priceless.

I showed this to a co-worker that I like to call a Mac fanboy, and he started crying...

I also agree with tezzanator though.

IMO macs and pcs are just as good as each other.. just depends on your needs. if your a web designer or photographer. a mac is for you. if your a gamer / want upgradablility out its ears. get a windows pc!

tis all up ro personal preferance... no dont go bitching on about poo... :)

[begin sarcasm] Yes, because exactly what we need right now is the PC/Mac debate. [end sarcasm]
Still, that was sorta funny. At least they can laugh at themselves.
