In reply to:

Think Different. Apple. I'm not a Mac guy (wish I could afford a powerbook or G5-- OSX is nice!), but this definitely appeals to the 'rebel' bred into just about every American.


Hmmmm is apple THAT MUCH of a rebel that they have to rebel against grammar as well? lol. It's think differently! GAH! - another reason why I dislike apple. I have to admit that their cases are beautiful, though.

Try it this way: "Think, 'Different.'"

And you've got to admit, it's better than the current Microsquash one:
"Your potential inspires us to create software that helps you reach it. Your potential, our passion."

I don't think I've ever heard a more convoluted slogan.

On the Apple ones, there's also "The Power to be your Best." "The Computer for the Rest of Us." (This was back when it was the Mac, Apple II, CP/M, C64, or DOS. It was referring to usability, not price.)

And Intel could do the same thing, and AMD could do the same thing, and IBM could do the same thing, and HP could do the same thing, and Alienware could do the same thing, and that weird dude who they interviewed on Tom's Hardware could do the same thing...

Don't gimme that crap... It's marketing.

Damn, why do I let myself get drawn into these things?

Oh yeah, and Microsoft could claim to have 99.999% uptime. Riiiiiight...

INANE,

Yes. We know. You don't like Apple. Can we move along now?

DJ,

What Ken said. "Think different" is grammatically correct. The slogan is not telling you how to think (in which case "think differently" is correct), it's telling you what to think about.

Think dark. Think cold. Think damp. Think bottom of a well. ... You get the picture now.

All I'm trying to say is there are lies, damn lies, and benchmarks.

Or, there are lies, damn lies, and marketing. And EVERYONE does it. It's the way the game is played. Get over it. If you don't like it, buy a TiVo. ;-)

Is this going to degenerate into a fanboy bash fest?

Think bubbly. Think malty. Think hoppy.

/homer simpson voice

Mmmmm. Beer. The cause of and solution to all our problems.

/homer off

I figure I'll go home and enjoy a delicious beer in front of Tivo while continuing my hopeless quest to "finish" programming that damn remote Ray3 made me buy.

I have a PC at home and work, but lust after the style and simple functionality of a Mac. It's wonderful that we continue to have options and competition.

What a country!
