Apple revs up Mac attacks on Vista

You had to know this was going to happen.  CNN is reporting that Apple plans to step up their attacks on Windows Vista and the PC in general with new ads featuring recurrent "Mac-Guy" Justin Long. Has anyone ever asked that guy if he's actually a Mac user?

"For nearly a year, television and Internet audiences have been seeing a familiar string of ads from Apple Inc. attacking rival Windows-based computers. With this week's release of Windows Vista, the newest jabs aren't any friendlier. In one ad, the character personifying the PC is dressed in hospital patient garb, talking about how he's set to undergo major surgery to upgrade to Vista. He then saunters off, telling the Mac character that if he doesn't come back, Mac can have his peripherals."

And after all the dust settles, and both companies are done spending millions and millions of dollars in an attempt to convince the masses their product is better than the competition's, Macs will still account for a miniscule sliver of the market, and Windows will be the dominant OS worldwide.
