Macintosh TV commercial drives the point home!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Check out the new Apple Macintosh TV commercial:
Clear and to the point (scary).
I'm thrilled, because about 2 years ago I installed a startup sound with HAL's voice saying: "I'm completely operational, and all of my circuits are functioning perfectly." It's a hoot!
I don't know when the commercial will begin airing on TV (Superbowl?) but when it does, awareness will go up like a rocket.

"It was a bug, Dave." Apple web ad, fun, serious, new marketing
I've been having nice discussions with Apple about this, have been encouraging them to go public for some time. Yes!

"It was a bug, Bill." "You like your Machintosh better than me, don't you Bill. Bill? Can you hear me Bill?"
That's how I hear it ;-) Cool marketting ploy, LOL.
