    Computerworld reports that several of the "I'm a PC" ad images that were posted to Microsoft's website were created on a Mac.
    The images likely originated from the Crispin Porter + Bogusky ad agency that is responsible for the campaign.

    Not sure what exactly to make of it. It's not really a big deal, and it's kind of to be expected, but, then again, I have no idea why. Slightly ironic, either way.

    Most video production is done on Macs. In my opinion not a big deal. On the other hand it's pretty sure that most Apple products are designed using CAD software in windows at some stage. ;)

    if Microsoft is now "Life without walls" then why the hell would anybody need Windows?

    All the people in the ad might be saying "I am a PC," but the people who made these images and videos sure as hell aren't. Got to love that, haha.

    Microsoft should have found an agency that uses PCs exclusively!

    *crickets*

    Oh, right... I forgot...

    Well, it's not like MS made them on a mac by themselves. It's an ad agency. Regardless of what they believe/do/use they're just filling a client request.

    The new ad campaign should be "I'm Mac, I'm just doing it for the money."

    I'm not to surprised either. It's ironic, though. Just like how Bill Gate's personalized 100 million dollar house was designed on a Mac. Ahaha.

    Ironic.

    There's CAD software for Mac. Google's SketchUp, AutoCAD (I think this is cross platform...) uhhh... I don't use CAD software so I don't really know any others. (I tinkered in SketchUp and there was an architecture class in school that used AutoCAD.)

    AutoCAD is more common and yes, its an windows only product.

    But its funny how Microsoft does Photoshop based ads using Macs when theres a Windows version available.

    Exactly what I thought when I first saw that tagline.

    Looks like Crispin Porter + Bogusky did some house cleaning last night as well.

    Yesterday their Interactive Jobs page listed the following for their Design Technologist / Interactive Designer (Boulder, CO) position:

    Now it reads...

    You can still (as of 9/19/08) find the original "Wise up and get a Mac" version on an alternate version of the Crispin Porter + Bogusky site...

    The http://cpbgroup.com/i-jobs.html was not.

    As well as several celebs hired to portray PCs including Eva Longoria Parker, Pharrell Williams, Deepak Chopra, astronaut Bernard Harris, and not to mention, Jerry Seinfeld, who all use a Mac.

    Lets see, first no one wanted their bloated crappy Vista, then no one wanted their Seinfield commercials, now they their own ad agency doesn't use Vista or M$ software to create their ads. What is left for M$ to screw up? Its going to be fun to see what's next.

    They are giving Apple so much material for new Apple ads that we should see some really funning new "I'm a MAC" commercials soon. I can't wait for the one where MAC walks in unannounced on PC and catches him trying to make a commercial using Adobe software on a MAC.
