...nor am I a Mac.
Microsoft's new "I'm a PC" ads are very postmodern, as they deal with the subtext of Apple's advertising (PC users are nerds*) but not the explicit message (Macs are easier to use, Macs are easier to set up, Macs are easier to interface, Macs are less likely to get a virus, Macs come with a lot of great software that you know you want, Macs are less likely to need a reboot, it's easier to move your stuff to a Mac than to a new PC, Vista is making life difficult for millions of Windows customers...).
The audience seems to be wavering PC users with self-esteem issues**. But why isn't Microsoft pitching the benefits of Vista vs. Mac?
I keep wondering if the real audience for these ads isn't internal.
