Yes, More Mac Ad Parodies

For even more laughs, here are four pretty good parodies of Apple’s “Get a Mac” ad campaign:

1 - Money

2 - Girl

3 - Work

4 - Music

The chain, which features female waitresses in tank tops and cheesy fake short shorts, bestowed the honor on the two mega-billionaires, who can now eat in any Hooters restaurants for free. Drinks still cost, but maybe they can take another corporate bigwig, Michael Scott, out to dinner at one of his favorite restaurants.


Matt Pietrek is testing out Windows Home Server in his house, giving a nice glimpse into what it’s really like to have one of those. I can’t wait till we start seeing Home Server in stores. Read his blog if you’re as impatient as I am.

Someone has created a program for Windows Mobile phones called DialPad that helps you out when you have to enter letters using the numbers on your keypad, and the phone does not have the letters printed on the number keys. Seems like a pretty good solution to an annoying problem.


Adobe has submitted its PDF format to the ISO for acceptance as an international standard. This is most likely to prevent Microsoft from making the claim that its XPS standard, while new and unused thus far, is still the only ISO standard for that type of document.
