Windows 7: Apple demanded Microsoft to stop its Laptop Hunters ads

Apple wants Microsoft to stop its Laptop Hunter ads? Well, Microsoft has feelings too and they were being mean and spreading FUD about Microsoft also. I guess it serves them right.

Hey, if I hit you I'm just being assertive but if you hit me you're being aggressive. If I call you an idiot I'm eager to establish honest and meaningful communication but if you call me an idiot you're being abusive.

You guys just don't understand. Apple being nasty to Microsoft is called spirited competition but Microsoft being nasty to Apple is called mean-spirited.

But Microsoft's commercials aren't even nasty at all. It is just what the random customer thinks. Apparently, Microsoft says their commercials are unscripted and they ask random people.

The hilarious thing is that Apple is overreacting to a commercial that doesn't do any harm to it. If Microsoft does what Apple usually does in their ads, then it would be trouble because Microsoft is a monopoly while Apple isn't.

I think the most histerical advertisement I have ever seen was a 5-page ad on Newsweek magazine by Commodore showing how great the Amiga was and all the cool stuff it could do. Nowhere in the 5 pages was the name Amiga to be found. You read the thing and got excited , you drooled and panted for it , and you had no idea what it was or where or how you could get one ... - a cult classic of stealth advertisement, and it must have cost a pretty penny.

GO MS!!!!

Anyways, yeah.
The best part about this is that the customers are looking for a computer, right? But they want to spend LESS than about $1500 (that is the highest I saw). So some of them go in the Apple store. Then they come out saying, that is not in the budget; we can't afford that! Then they go find a PC with BETTER specs, for $1350 or w/e.

Just to throw this out there, I don't think you can buy a Mac for $700. Not even their lowest end one.

It dawned on me, I needed a cooked bios, new driver kexts, and loads of messing around in order to get a retail paid for version of os x to run on my collection of bits in a case. Whatever jumble of junk I have in that case, I load Windows 7, and it... just works!
Mmm, I just can't agree with you for that. OS X isn't supposed to run on anything other than Apple hardware. In fact, it's part of their EULA (non-Apple PCs running Mac OS are called "Hackint0sh"s for a reason). It's almost like saying a Civic engine didn't work so well in an F-150.

That doesn't make sense at all. So if Apple does it, there's nothing wrong. But when Microsoft does it, they are nasty? That's simply illogical. In case you don't know, Laptop Hunter ads do not criticize Apple. They simply show consumers others opinions of different products. There's nothing in the ads that Mac Fanatics can disagree with.
