Bimbo attempting to write tech flyer
Recently I came across a flyer of a new MAC store in Bangsar. It was the most hilarious tech marketing I have ever seen. This girl actually wrote an entire essay about the coolness. It is not how awesome a MAC is but just about the word cool.How do I know it was a girl who wrote this flyer? Cos she wrote the same exact thing for her dance studio. Check this out.

In case you can't read it, I shall type it out here.

Why haven't you still owned a MAC?

We loved our PC. It looked great on our family desk. We surfed the net. Chatted online with friends and listened to our favorite tunes.

- Ok, hold up. I've got something to say here. There is an abuse of full stops here. You can actually combine the ideas into one or two sentences. Ok, a PC doesn't look very great on the family desk FYI. Unless its a freaking LCD monitor, projector keyboard and the entire CPU submerged into some non-conducting liquid. Otherwise, PC never looked great especially on family desk??!!!! eeksss..I don't think I can even chat if its on the family desk.

But that was until we got a Mac. Owning a Mac is like owning a flashy sports car. But even better. It's built to last. It works like a dream. It's cool. But ten times more than cool.

- Hmm, yea Mac is a flashy sports car, but what is better than a flashy sports car?? A rocket? Mac is built to last? No way man. Every tech equipment has an EOL (end of life). Sorry to say, you have to keep updating, or else it won't be cool anymore. You see, she does not know how else to describe so she had to waste another sentence to say that it is ten times more than cool. Me no very understanding what is ten times more than cool. Does it mean it is
Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious cool? OMG, it is soooo bimbo-ish. Again notice the abuse of full stops?? Who the heck talks like that!

If looks could kill. It would be a Mac.

- Again too many full stops or should I say overuse of period. She must have wrote it during her period. I do agree that MAC's designs are meant to be cool. Steve Jobs is very anal when it comes to designs.

We just printed our first photo book. We share songs with our eye catching ipods. And record our favorite tv shows. Even mom organizes her photos on our Mac.
That PC, well...what PC?
We never had one.

- errr.....*stress* So, a Mac is a photo kiosk? That's a frigging expensive one indeed. I don't frigging care about the shallow things you do with your Mac. I wanna know its capabilities!! features!! the edge it has over Windows!! What about all those cool interface that it is capable of? I bet she doesn't have any frigging idea what kinda OS it is running on. Maybe, she doesn't know what an OS is!
And to end it, she made another bimbo statement about not owning a PC..ahhaha. It is excruciating to read what she is writing and how she is trying to say that Mac is cool. In conclusion Mac is cool, so you should go get yourself one cos it is cool. Why is it cool, I don't know but I know it is ten times more than cool.

Next time if your non techie gf offers to do a write up on a gadget for you, just say "Honey, I'll make love to you the entire night after I write it myself".

It is excruciating to read the entire flyer I tell you.

    Obviously, she doesn’t realize tat some mac books like the mac book pro have the processor soldered onto the mobo. Somesort like a TSOP.
    Steve jobs looks jewish although he is of Syrian descent.

    i was working in a apple center before near jalan ampang for couple of years (they moved). lots of people asked me this question. so basically here is my explanation.

    well pc and mac is on diff league.
    although both do almost the same thing, and hardware basically the same, what mac really offers is the simplicity of doing certain things, like editing movies, edit photos and all, while pc offers vast choice of hardware combination.

    but heres how mac stand out; it "customize" the OS and configuration to a particular set of hardware, especially on logicboard (or main board), graphic and processor combination. each model has its own version of OS base on diff set of combination. result: high level of integration between software and hardware. but at the same time, it sacrifices hardware swapping. u will have some difficulties if u change certain hardware. but newer mac still allows some basic DIY upgrades, depends on models.

    while pc on the other hand has got millions of combination, but only 1 version of OS. every manufacturer claims they know the OS best and wrote their own version of firmware, some of them even without concerning of other hardwares. on the OS side, it is not design to run at optimum performance. it just cant fully make use of the hardware, maybe with the correct firm ware.

    there are lots of debate going on saying which is best. but the way i see it, it is more like what u need and budget, really. theres no best solution. its just unfair to compare them.

    And yes! Due to the technology advancement, what you have today would become obsolete in a few months. In regards to the technology adopted by the world’s 2 top micro processor makers INTEL and AMD, both companies currently adopt the flip chip aka c4 controlled collapse chip connection method, and they had to migrate from the older method known as “wire bonding” due to the miniaturization of the transistors on the die and for economic reasons in manufacturing. The former method is the preferred method for most semiconductor companies at this stage.
    Currently, the size of the wafer preferred in the industry is the 12 inch as opposed to the 8 inch since one would simply obtain more number of dies on a 12 inch wafer.
    And with the proliferation of MEMS, who knows wats gonna happen in the next few years.
    Ultimately, one’s preference would depend on the size of his/her wallet and the most basic needs.

    The way the flyer was written encourages the general public(teens especially) to follow the crowd.
    What is perceived as cool these days is just basically cool!!! Because the advert says it!!!
    And ppl don have a mind of their own!!!!
    But then again, if you were given the responsibility of writing up the flyer. Would you not draw critics to your flyer as well for being excessively technical and boring? Or maybe, the company which was hired by apple to produce this flyer should have fired the person who wrote it and you should have her job. I suspect that apple Malaysia has consulted the services of an advertising company in Malaysia to produce the flyer.

    With the weakened American dollar, Intel has just set up a fab plant in dalian china to lower cost. Human labour exploitation! Any retrenchment by these so called American giants would be due to George W Bush’s war on terror campaign in Iraq. With KBR as the clean up crew in Iraq, one could only guess that DICK cheney who sits on the board of KBR has sinister intentions. Or for that matter, the American government.

    Vulcan: that's a long write up on IC. Anywayz this store is just an Apple distributor and its not Apple Malaysia. Steve Jobs will never let Apple Malaysia to write such flyer. The person that wrote this so happen to be the girl friend of the owner (free consultation services).

    Oh I thought Halliburton were the clean up crew in Iraq. Now I know KBR. Oh well, Americans who voted for him are mostly from the farmland. The entire Bush administration has only one intention. OIL!!
