This Message Brought To You In SMUG-O-RAMA!
It is unwarranted, since I neither invented, participated in the invention of, nor even owned a truly vintage Mac BUT when I see the MAC VS. PC Commercials on television I experience a proud rush of smug exclusivity. I know that worldwide, my G4 and I are hoplessly outnumbered by PCs and that the evolution of the World's First peronal computer is now financed by iPod money and yet I manage to feel superior.
It's a pride that doesn't extend to other products. I don't silently cheer my brand of ketchup, bathroom cleaner or toothpaste when their television commercials air but when MAC and PC begin their tongue in cheek exchange I smile.
