I'm Not a PC: John Hodgman Hearts Apple

John Hodgman is famous for playing the nerdy, awkward and very uncool PC character in Apple's "Mac vs. PC" ad campaign. Given that he's starring in Apple commercials, it shouldn't be surprising to hear Hodgman loves all things Apple but that doesn't mean it doesn't sting just a little.

AppleInsider reports that in a recent Diggnation interview, Hodgman revealed that he was given an iPod and a MacBook Pro on the first round of commercials he did for Apple. The self-professed Mac-fan used his own MacBook Air for the duration of the show.

Does this change the way you feel towards Apple's portrayal of PC?

    No.

    BTW the PC character isn't 'nerdy, awkward and very uncool' he's honest and true to himself and doesn't pretend to be something he's not unlike the obnoxious twat next to him.
