This Week's Hot News: April Fool's Edition

PC Says to Mac: Yeah, well, I'm CHEAP!

Last week Microsoft aired the advertisment that launched a thousand ships. PC and Mac fans completely went to town after Microsoft finally pointed out the ridiculously large elephant in the room: Macs cost way too much. A couple of blogs tracked down, Lauren, the girl from the video and were a little surprised that the sweet, geeky looking girl who sought, "a 17 inch laptop for under a thousand dollars," was actually an actress with stage combat skills and a cheerleading career. Shocker. You can check out the full story about the ad here, but what's really great is the feedback for this story. A lot of lovin' and hatin' in the comments.

    Of course the woman on the commercial was a actress. Does anyone honestly think that Microsoft randomly approach someone and give them this challenge? This would be like hunting down a kid from a Sunny D commercial to see him choose the soda (or god forbid the purple stuff) over the Sunny D.
