A MacCast listener just sent me this screenshot of an Intel ad that appeared in this PCWorld article. It was very interesting to note that the browser image in the dog’s mouth is an Apple Safari browser. Now I know that usually the artist who designed the ad will be a Mac user and they just happened to take a screenshot from their browser and use it, but it is funny none the less. Plus, if you remember I noted a while back how the new Intel logo has a distinct “Aqua” look about it. Are we seeing more merging of the Apple Intel cultures?
This is very interesting. This could very well mean a possible merging of the two cultures, but only time will tell.
It’s cool because intel (tsnch!-doo-doong-dooong-ding) will soon be working with Apple, won’t they?
Considering that it’s the best looking browser (right above Camino), do you really blame them?
I’d use it too!
God! Please no! I hate intel! I wish apple would just rip away from them, no intel parts in new computers! AUGHAUGH!
ha.Ha. aughaugh. i should name a pet something like that.
This reminds me of the time they advertised Sony Vaio laptops using an Apple Powerbook (purely because the person who made the ad chose the picture)
I read it on theregister.com a while back
I truly hope that this is something to do with the new apple-intel alliance. it would be very exciting if that were the case.
i cannot wait until the announcements in january and june
I just know apple have designed some outstanding products
brace yourselves – they are going to take the pc market by STORM
Cool, lessee what happenz…
I think it’s all a matter of just whatever graphic design firm intel uses, they happen to use macs. When it came time to get a screenshot of a browser to finish the job, well what do most mac users use? Safari. Therefore a safari screen was used.
did you see this one? An iBook on a M$ advert on their website!!!:
Also a very old pBook on another M$ ad:
Also, nothing to do with anything but I bumbed into this. They made the most idiodic error ever!:
Did you notice that the contest says ” you could win a high performance Intel based PC. . .” Well don’t shoot me but an Apple MAC is also a PC, that with the Safari connection could be a big hint. Depending when this contest is over, they could be giving away an Intel Based MAC.
I remember a while ago seeing an ad for Microsoft’s “security systems” with a small child playing on an ibook instead of a PC…. brilliant. Clearly the ibook just looks far better,hell it is the best :P
Here in New Zealand, there is a web site http://www.sorted.org.nz/ which is a public service site to assist with personal finance – mortgages, saving etc. The prominent TV ad for this shows the site in a browser, being operated by a mouse (i.e. the animal). The browser is quite clearly Safari, with the name and Apple logo (menu) clearly visible.
