That's it. No G4 for me.


Speaking of commercials, the stupid Windows 7 commercial is playing on my TV as I type this (the Windows 7 is my idea crap). The specific one on now is the crazy French woman who acts like she's about to have an orgasm talking about her computer on Window 7. Are they purposely trying to be annoying? And what's up with the numerous commercials showing two windows snapping together to split the screen??? They act like this is the only thing Windows 7 can do. :rolleyes:

I don't understand why anyone could possibly care who the heck is hawking Apple gear. Whether Lady Gaga is chosen or the Dalai Lama, it doesn't really matter - I buy what I want to buy for what it is and what it does, not who some ad agency has chosen to be in a damn commercial (which I likely won't watch anyway) ... :rolleyes:

****! That's my future wife you're talking about! :mad:

Seriously....I sometimes don't fast forward that one on my DVR...she's cute! :eek:

Edit: What other OS has the snap functionality? (Automatic, not manual. And I'm serious...it may exist but I just don't know.)

That article was ridiculous, I've never heard anyone call her Lady Caca. She most certainly isn't talentless, she writes her own music (She used to a songwriter for other pop artists), is pretty good at keeping herself relevant and talked about, and has an amazing creative team (The Haus of Gaga) which she created and runs. (Hell she is also the creative director for Polaroid). I never thought I would see the day where I was defending Lady Gaga, but I mean come on, just because her style of music might not be yours, it doesn't mean she is talentless.

I agree completely. While Lady Gaga isn't exactly my cup of tea, she has tremendous talent. Much respect. As for being the new spokesperson for Apple, this should interesting.

Wow nice dumpster diving there.

Lady Gaga... Another whore that grew up rich going to private school with Paris Hilton and passing off her "sexual awareness" as some kind of pseudo art form ah la music. Between her and Kesha, I think they cover every synonym for male genitalia in their songs.

But HEY, the tweens of today do need their healthy role models to look up to. They did have the ***** Cat Dolls at the teen choice awards after all.

I could really careless who hawks the iPhone.

I suppose its apple attempt to maintain an edgy hip reputation. Whether they've succeeded with lady gaga is another question.

My first question would be - What is wrong with being rich and going to a private school? My second query would be do you even know what you are talking about?

While I am in no way a Lady Gaga fan, I must give credit where credit is due. My understanding is she learned to play the piano by the age of four, and by the time she was 14 had composed several songs and was performing them in public. She gained early admission into NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, not an easy school to get in to.

I'm not saying she should be a role model for our kids, or the spokeswoman for female equality, but I think your judgment and opinion were a bit off IMO.

So in your opinion my opinion is off in your opinion of my opinion. Gotcha. My opinion will be sure to check with your opinion first before making itself since it is wrong in your opinion. ;)

IMO, I think it is sad to grow up rich going to private schools and then end up degrading yourself in public for more money. Her parents obviously pushed her into music at a young age as im sure she didn't decide at 3/4 to teach herself the piano, despite her ability to learn it at such a young age. Her parents must be quite proud of her musical direction. As Kesha would say " Blah blah blah just show me where your disco stick is at! "

Well, I know it's off topic...

Better Touch Tool for Mac lets you do it in OSX.

Compiz-Fusion (Beryl) lets you do it on a Linux computer.

As for GaGa... So what? Is she really worse than Justin Long? Or those bodyless hands?

Why would Apple choose Lady GaGa?
I thought Apple products were revolutionary and simple,but
she is insane and looks like a clown.
