fortune: Microsoft Reality Ad - More on "Lauren" - De Long not Conrad

“I’m just not cool enough to be a Mac person.”

All about Microsoft’s “Lauren”
Her hair is red, her eyes dark brown, her physique slim. She stands 5′2″ in her stocking feet and weighs 113 lbs. in her birthday suit.
Her name is Lauren De Long, and she set a million geek hearts aflutter with her spunky performance in the now famous “you find it, you keep it” PC ad, in which she chose an HP (HPQ) Pavillion running Microsoft (MSFT) Windows Vista Home Edition over any computer in the Apple (AAPL) store.

She’s the young, hip, Volkswagen-driving redhead who stars in the latest Microsoft’s (MSFT) TV campaign. Told that if she can find a 17-inch laptop for under $1,000 she can keep it, Lauren ends up — to the Mac aficionados’ dismay — with an HP (HPQ) running Windows Vista.
“I would have to double my budget, which isn’t feasible,” Lauren says as she drives away from an Apple Store, where 17-inch notebooks start at $2,799. Then she sighs and delivers the ad’s coup de grace: “I’m just not cool enough to be a Mac person.”

Lauren (De Long not Conrad) rocks!

Yeah, but the computer the producers chose for Lauren De Long, an actress, is actually an under-performing crap box. So, when the commercial is broken-down, it's more nonsense from Microsoft. Another example of how they just don't get it.

not sure what there is to "get". I just bought an HP 17" laptop with Intel chipset. I wanted a Mac, but the Mac that had the same exact specs, was over $1000 more expensive! I have an iPhone and I love Apple, but for that price difference I could buy a 42" flatscreen TV!

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. A week ago I discovered this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Play Ps3 tournaments for cash[/url]
They say you can play online Football game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

The writer of techstartups.blogspot.com has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: Truth is infinite, understanding is finite I will be back.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real income.
It gets down to choose a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
