"hmm, photo is a little unclear. maybe some arrows will help."
Not sure why you'd bother with that kit when a Surface Pro will do everything that will in a smaller space. ;-)
But if it was an Alienware games machine running Half-Life then yeah, pretty jealous.
meant to ask if you're related to that bloke off the surface adverts
set designer who says "you could never do this on a mac" really smugly
His parents are def academics who live in a Brooklyn brownstone.
christ, beowulf. don't you just want to beat him up when he says that.
because she thought those adverts were so smug and lacked class :D
apart from maybe an X-Box one.
That said, Mac ads are pretty grim too.
more the content and the fact that as my Mum put it 'their product must be pretty shit if they have to name and put down the competition to get sales'
You remember those Mac and PC ads Apple made, right? The US ones were fairly amusing and the UK ones starred the Peep Show characters. Exactly the same shtick in reverse.
(Also see Samsung's ridiculous anti iPhone crap.)
I did point this out actually but it's much more direct, heavy handed and smug. That's the point.
we wouldn't have had this discussion? I mean obviously this would have stopped you being smugly sarcastic so... *ASCII shrug*
you'd have gone and watched it and totally comprehended the point for yourself as I'm sure others did?
I'll have a conversation with you and you won't be treating it like a supafire rap battle. Maybe. It's just so wearing, though...

where Apple hired people to ride the ny subways and sit around in public places using them
This probably isn't an extension of that.
are just really tight?
