Wierd, no matter what I do, I get no sound for it. Bleh. I tried different browsers and I tried downloading it and viewing offline, but still no sound. Makes me sad.

It's really not even that funny, but I guess PC people who know nothing about a Mac might fine it humorous. That kind of stuff doesn't bother me anyone, I know I like using Macs, I probably always will, and that is all I need to know.

I dunno.. The software update bouncing-Jack Russell terrier comparison was pretty funny, even if it's not true (for me atleast).

Use mplayer, and you should have no problems with that file: http://mplayerosx.sourceforge.net/

As for the video itself, the complaints are normal from a person who doesn't really know much about the Macintosh OS. Perhaps the guy in the video knows about the Mac OS, and was just using satire in an attempt at being funny.

Hell, I'm as big an Apple zealot as they come and a card carrying member of the Church of Jobs and I got some chuckles out of it. The Jack Russell Terrier thing was pretty funny. I have a B/W G3 that I am about to drop kick like that guy did that iMac.

Relax, it's all good.

It was good movie. I laughed at the terrier thingy. But, if you look in reality, replace every "Mac" or "Macintosh" or anything like that with "PC" or "Windows" ;)

If you don't find any humor in that clip you need to lighten up. If that video actually made you mad, you really need to lighten up.

That clip was funny in 2001. It is funny today. And it will still be funny in 2wks when someone "discovers" the video and makes a new thread about it.

I've never experienced any of the problems he was talking about, but then again I never really got deep into Mac OS X Public Beta, but 10.0 was a pain at times (ICQ crashed every 3-4 minutes). Fortunately, I always had 9 to fall back onto if need be.

Right on, this gets posted so frequently that it is just an annoyance.

The sound never works on these things, I don't know why. I tried turning the volume up. Sometimes I just don't get the audio.

It's not even funny... :rolleyes:
I was hoping against hope it wasn't that video again. ;) But alas. :eek:

It didn't work with Quicktime, and then I actually checked this post again because MR is slow, and saw the Google link, and when I saw the preview clips on the right side, ahhh, didn't need to watch it again.

Ahhh, but can I use this moment to say that I think the Video Google interface with the snapshots on the right is really sweet? :D

in the end, he said, he made the whole thing on a mac. why is the video then in .avi?

after knowing that he was using mac os x.0 then it would be easier to lighten up.

what annoyed me more, was the length of the movie.

.avi's work fine on my computer, and they have since I can remember.

Either install the divx codecs from divx.com, or you can run vlc and/ or mplayer. If you're in OS 9, I forget, it's been a while.

I've been a mac user for almost a month now, quite a lot of those things said is true, even in Tiger.
