    Hi there

    Long long long ago, I subscribed to Mac Addict and loved it.

    I used to have a disk from the first issue or one of the first that had a video called:
    "Hey Look, It's A PC!!!"

    Basically, the writers are watlking down the street and they see a PC box and one yells out, "Hey Look! It's a PC!" At which point they utterly destroy it!

    It was so awesome and so full of win!

    I have tried to find that video on YouTube, but to no avail!

    Might anyone have a copy of that vid, I would so love to watch that again!

    Thank you!

    Not sure how much win that was full of, but it definitely had the requisite phrase!

    Stupid back then, and stupid still. ;-)

    If it had been full of parts, that would have been a little more entertaining. MacAddict was a decent publication for about the first few issues. The letters section alone, mostly pure junk. It was hard to take a serious look at it.

    It's stupid for Mac users to call windows boxes PC's as if a mac isn't a pc.

    PC merely stands for personal Computer

    This certainly took the "Fighting back for Mac" campaign a whole lot further.:apple:

    Pc

    Mac always said theirs was a personal computer and never a PC. It wasn't like any of the rest. If you look at the Mac it never was, it was so different from other Apples nothing was compatible across. The Mac killed the Lisa, even competed against its own Apple II line.

    You can win your argument now, Steve is dead and gone and Mac OS can run unsupported on PC parts and windows can run native on a Mac. The reality is in 1984 the Macintosh was a personal computer not a PC and the business did everything they could to stop it.
