Mocking Apple Products

I love to torture the Sasquatch, who is a Mac user, by calling Macs not computers, but "Apple Products." Now, keep in mind that, in another world with lots of cash, I would likely be an Apple person, too. But, for now, I just enjoy tweaking and annoying my friend.

Recently, I saw this fairly pretentious iPhone commercial that gave viewers the impression that the workings of commercial aviation could be altered by a cockpit crew member checking the weather function on his damn phone. My friend and fellow blogger Chuck, the man Beyond the Cheddar Curtain, works in the aviation industry, and he wrote an entry recently about just that commercial. The entry has a link to an amusing (and profane) parody of the commercial, which made me laugh inappropriately. "It rained for six hours that night."

Hey, what's with this nice surprise blog entry complimenting something I wrote? :)

Thanks for the shout-out and link! More discussion about that commercial will be coming shortly.

Oh, that is priceless.

And, as a Mac user (iPod Nano and MacBook), I find Apple's latest round of commercials utterly preposterous. I mean, giving an effing break! Like a pilot is going to use his iPhone to get clearance for a flight?! Even without a working knowledge of how the aviation industry works, even a semi-comatose person would know that's a farce. Whatever happened to truth in advertising? Oh right. I forgot. I'm naive and believe no one would ever lie to me, especially advertisers. Oh well.

I hate the fact that Apple is making the ownership of their products so pretentious.
