    Well thought I would check to see whether the ESPN Unicorn Hack is still working, but got something else good instead..

    Saw new Apple online Ad. "PC. Easy As 1-2 3".
    Well it's not exactly 1, 2, 3. It's one to twenty-three. =)

    The ads represent the flaws of the PC. Microsoft wasted millions of dollars on the Ads of Seinfield and failed when they couldve used that money to fix vista. The ads of Apple are low-budgeted with only 2 people and actually work.

    I love Apple's banner ads... way better than the stupid ones like that one that went around awhile ago that went HELLOOOOOOO!!! in an obnoxious voice. In fact I enjoy some Apple banner ads more than some of their TV ads!

    New "Get a Mac" ad at CNET: "Easy as 1 though 23"

    Apple has a new ad on CNET. Pretty funny. PC is as easy as "1 - 23"

    Having to reinstall Windows XP every 30 days because of Microsoft flawed activation system (I've got a legit copy and it refuse to activate!), I completely agree with the ads... It's a chore to make a fresh install and download back all the apps I need when some of thems weight at least 4GB (games over steam).

    Just call microsoft. They'll give you an activation code over the phone.
