O novo anúncio da Apple...

Sim, eu já dei por isso. Só decidi ignorar até que alguém escrevesse o que eu pretendia dizer sobre o assunto, porque sou preguiçoso e é sempre melhor citar do que escrever... :-)

E ainda bem que o Paul Thurrott fez isso mesmo, com um excelente post no seu blog:

In this pathetic ad, Apple is actually criticizing Microsoft for spending dramatically more money on advertising than on “fixing problems with Vista.” That this is demonstrably untrue never bothers Apple, so we can just skip over that nicety immediately. The charge, obviously, is that Microsoft can make Windows Vista look good by advertising it, not fixing it.

Irony/hypocrisy alert: For the past two years, Apple has been spending money on advertising designed to make Windows Vista look bad, while not spending money fixing the many problems in their own products. I’m looking at you Leopard, MobileMe, and iPhone 3G. And don’t get me started on the style over substance of the new Macbooks.

Irony/hypocrisy alert 2: The ad comes less than a week after Apple introduced its incredibly expensive new laptops into the worst economic conditions in almost 100 years. And as the Wall Street Journal noted this morning, they did so even though the “average price [of a Mac was already] more than twice as high as computers based on Microsoft’s Windows operating system.” So much for the computer for the rest of us.

Quanto ao anúncio da Apple, e sem mais comentários, ei-lo:

P.S.: I'm a PC!
P.S.(2): Mais uma opinião no mesmo sentido, aqui.
