The new Apple UK ads starring the Peep Show duo of David Mitchell and Robert Webb must have really rubbed people up the wrong way. It’s only Monday, and there are already two rants about Apple in the UK press.
- Charlie Brooker trolls and scores with “I hate Macs” (Guardian newspaper)
- Seb Janacek highlights “The 10 worst things about Apple : Arrogant, litigious, lunatic…” (Silicon.com)
I thought the flame wars were long extinguished after the Commodore 64 vs Spectrum and Amiga vs Atari ST wars. Looks like there is a whole new generation of earnest young men ready to flame away… or shamelessly generate traffic and ad revenue.
P.S. The Commodore 64 and Amiga ruled in their day 😉
