My eyes!

It's porn, isn't it? It's gotta be the first shot in a really disgusting sequence...

Reminds me of Macauley Culkin for some reason. I wouldn't be surprised if Michael Jackson was behind the camera in this shot, too ;)

Hey Obi-Wan check out my disk...

Clearly this is an early photo of Emperor Billpatine practising his Jedi levitation tricks on diskettes before he turned completely to the darkside...

Just how old was Bill Gates at that point? He looks 12, but still evil. :)
Aaarrrugh - I don't know what's worse: the "seductive" Bill on the tabletop, or Bill lying through his teeth in an Apple advert.:rolleyes:
To create a new standard takes something that's not just a little bit different. It takes something that's really new, and captures peoples' imaginations. Macintosh meets that standard.
Tell me again, was this before or after he ripped off Mac OS? :mad:

In the old ad he does look very young. Surprised that he had his picture along with a compliment to Apple.

The above posted picture certainly puts Bill Gates in a bad light. Looks like he has circles under his eyes. Also looks like he's feeling the effects of some sort of drug, under the influence.

Holy crap, Bill looks like my Dad in the old ad... :eek:

Still, I think that Bill knows that Macintosh is better, he just refuses to admit it...;)

While working on Macintosh software he had another team actively copying it. If I remember correctly Windows 1.0 came out in '85 not long after the Mac was released.

*claps*

Hahah that's great.
This seems like what Bill should be saying in the second picture:

"Now you will witness the power of this fully armed and operational BATTLE STATION!!" hahaha

Great pics ;) :D

Sorry to cut back to the ad, but is it just me that found myself falling asleep half way through Fred Gibbons round about praise of the Macintosh? Why didn't he just get straight to the point and say "PFS running on both a mac and machine x would show all which is superior"?

There always that something about Mr. Gates, that is always so creepy (In a take-over-the-world kind of sense)
Especially the one of him on the desk....
