PC uses a Mac

    Newer Older

    John Hodgman, the PC personified in the Apple ads, is just as nerdy in real life. I felt compelled to harass him about Vista, and then found myself sadly apologetic as he looked back at me with that hurt stare. But then he explained that he actually uses a Mac.

    Duh. I guess I should not have been surprised at this, but he is my mental image of all things Microsoft, and I have a hard time shaking it, even when he is on stage talking about alien abductions off to sex pyramids.

      I'm so jealous. My PR firm sent me a list of conferences last month and I saw TED on the list and said "Can YOU get ME into TED?"

      "Well... no" was their answer. Someday. For now I live vicariously through your flickr stream.

      LOL @ interwebs in the red-light district.

      Of course he's a mac user.... His most prominent role is acting in APPLE's Computer Ads.
