"Life without Walls"

With no walls, where do the windows go?

This misguided campaign is laughable. It's trying to answer Apple's "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" ads but misses the point entirely.

In the Apple ads the characters are personifications of the computers. It's not actually saying these are real people who identify with being Macs and PCs.

So Microsoft's effort where people say that they are a PC is nonsense, and who would ever really label themselves a PC.

Ironically, a Mac fan might actually call himself a PC, as a Mac is a more 'real' defined concept than a PC - which could be made by anyone and look completely different.

I've always hated the term 'PeeCee' anyway. An Apple Mac is just as much a personal computer as a Windows machine in any case.

Maybe I should call my Windows computer a WC.

I seem to remember that we used to use the term "ibm compatible" to distinguish from a Mac

Perhaps they are preparing us for "Cloud Apps" :))

No walls required!

`Maybe I should call my Windows computer a WC.`
