    In the new commercial where PC is going for surgery and says he wants Mac to have all his peripherals if he doesn't make it, and Mac says "Oh, speaking of peripherals..."

    What does he mean?

    The next shot of the iMac is meant to imply that you don't need peripherals with a Mac. Not really true, but good advertising.

    I actually think it's the fact that "PC" is in a hospital gown...and as he walks away his rear "peripherals" are visible to our friend "Mac"...notice how "Mac" looks towards "PC" and pulls his eyes away quickly?

    Yeah, it's definitely a joke about the "PC" guy's open hospital gown. :D

    Um, yeah... that's a much better interpretation. I missed "the look". :eek:

    well that all depends on what he ate that day as that would affect the transfer speeds.

    I thought it was a Keynote only ad and 'speaking of peripherals' was a segue into introducing Apple TV :eek:

    Yeh I hate it when USB just trickles along. FireWire is good because it comes in one big lump.

    You guys are probably right. I thought it was because Mac could use PC's peripherals. So, if PC didnt come back, Mac just inherited all of the peripherals PC had accumulated. That way, there aren't any obstacles to switching to Mac...:confused:

    Ha ha!

    I took it to mean he was referring to the new products too.

    The real meaning is MUCH funnier!

    :D :D

    That is EXACTLY what I thought too. :)

    Makes more sense about the peripherals hanging out though...

    He's making a joke about seeing PC's @ss as he walks away in the hospital gown.
