New 'Security' Get-a-Mac Ad Targets Vista
Apple has posted a new Get a Mac TV advertisement called "Security" which pokes fun at Vista's security prompts. The new ad premiered last night on U.S. television.
The ad is a followup to recently released ads called "Tech Support" and "Surgery" in which the PC undergoes an upgrade to Windows Vista.
In a recent interview, Bill Gates has commented on the Get a Mac ad campaign, specifically about the security and upgrade criticisms.
Are you bugged by the Apple commercial where John Hodgman is the PC, and he has to undergo surgery to get Vista?
I've never seen it. I don't think the over 90 percent of the [population] who use Windows PCs think of themselves as dullards, or the kind of klutzes that somebody is trying to say they are.
Later in the interview, he claims that "security guys break the Mac every single day." This comment has drawn a lot of criticism on the Mac web.
