Yaa these ads are funny :)

Sriram said...

The ads are good but I wonder what the point is. Are they trying to infuse pride into PC users? It is like Hyundai advertising for an SUV and claiming that Land Rover is slightly better - it had two extra cup holders.

The day virtual reality becomes reality and you can do interactive porn with your computer, it does not matter one bit. Atleast I am better off with a 600$ laptop that crashes once a day than a similar 2200$.

The tyrant strikes back is more like it. You must be feeling full proud, now that your company is responding (much better than its software does, I should admit)

"I am a PC"
"I am the essence of over confidence"
What marketing?
What strategy?

arun,

:-)

sriram,

maybe its like a rajini padam. meant to attract podhumakkal and not medhavees. who knows?

fully agree with you on the virtual reality.

jeffjose :-)

maduraiveeran,

janani,

me too.

gradwolf,

when a person deicdes to comment, he instinctively knows if he is about to say something stupid. when he knows that he disassociates his name from the comment. This is the reason why a large % of anon comments are xtremely stupid.

though.. off-late the quality of my readership has gone down dramatically.


I,

least common denominator'ku ithu porum.

twlee,

your comment is pethal.

> though.. off-late the quality of my readership has gone down dramatically.

Compare some of your recent posts to your own post a while back: http://hawkeyeview.blogspot.com/2005/08/if-p-then-q.html

The reason at least I check your blog occasionally is to read something of value. I guess what is of value is a subjective thing, nevertheless it's been a let down off late...

TWLee,

(I am an occasional reader too). At least you find strong opinions here whether you agree or disagree. Don't confuse what you agree with what you like. I come here because of strong controversial opinions. More fun than drab blogs.

Also, you should really see if your first comment made any sense or not.

TWL said...

I neither agree nor disagree with the post. In my first comment - I was commenting on the YouTube vids posted and MS strategy, not the post itself.

This post from Bharath doesn't lend any new knowledge to me. It's just a bunch of links. So, again, there's nothing to agree or disagree about.

And that went towards the core of my 2nd comment - I wish there were more posts that one could find controversial.

Sreelatha, I don't know where you got the idea that I was strongly disagreeing with Hawkeye, especially since it didn't make any sense at all to you at the same time.

:)
