Mac virus that'll make you melt..

by Claire 10/06/2009 09:36

There's a virus on the market and here's the shocker: it makes Macs melt.  Unfortunately for envious windows users, it's a fake - but Mac fanboys will love it .  Last year a company called Troika brought out a video of the trendy little virus that makes the Mac desktop crumble and float around, reacting to which way you tilt the computer.  This year they've brought it out on a USB stick for every person with too much time on their hands with a computer-illiterate friend.  It costs $5 for a screensaver, $7 for a USB stick, or $10 for both, depending on what extend you want to annoy your Mac-user friends.  It's also just become part of the permanent collection at MOMA, New York.

 

Troika are the arty design guys who also made the 'giant mirror blob' out of flip-spots in Heathrow's Terminal 5.  It's on display at the Design Museum's Design Awards 2009 display.  It might be very shiny and clever, but it's also been described as a "hovering silver poo" – so make up your own mind..

1984

by Dudley 01/12/2008 03:35
I can't remember where I saw this the other week but I have just been reminded of it again by the new Simpsons episode which jokes about Apple (we decided not to post it as it would cause too many problems in the mac vs pc war in the studio) but here is '1984' the advert which introduced the Macintosh personal computer for the first time.

I'm a PC

by Dudley 23/09/2008 08:44

The recent ad's by ad agency Crispin Porter and Bogusky for Microsoft have sparked the ongoing debate/argument about which is better...Apple or Microsoft. This will no doubt increase ongoing tension and more witty remarks in the studio between the client services/tech PC users and the creative Mac users.

Obviously in this open forum I should remain unbiased, but having switched from a PC to a Mac 4 years ago I could never go back (trying desperately to resist a 'Once you go mac, you never go back' quip here...maybe that could be their new ad campaign?!). 

If you've not seen it check it out below, basically they are trying to shake the 'geeky' stereotype that the Apple 'I'm a Mac' adverts pushed. To be honest I quite like it and I can't wait to see what Apple do in retaliation.
