iBook sighting on CNN

  • Posted: 26 June 2001 07:11 PM

    Hey guys,

    I was at work and we had CNN on TV to follow some US news, and at some point during the day, they featured some hip technology products. They displayed an iBook and started talking about it.

    This is very good exposure if you ask me. Even a colleague of mine, who is PC-minded, thought that the notebook is nice and affordable.

    I was at work yesterday and the lead computer tech was toting around his new tibook. I can’t believe what this thing looks like. I haven’t seen the new ibook yet, but I hear it’s a beauty. If you look carefully on TV you can find a lot of tibooks. The West Wing is a great example. That White House loves the titanium!

    The fake White House at least.  I heard a rumor that President Bush uses a Mac but I don’t remember where.

    President Bush is the proud owner of a Wallstreet PowerBook G3.

    Just registered.  Also, Al Gore is a windows user.  Figures.  Boring, unoriginal…

    Welcome to the forums.

    Al Gore is lucky he knows how to use a real window, let alone Bill Gates’ version of it.

    I am so not going to get involved in this discussion.

    Though I will point out that our sitting president thinks that Microsoft “innovates.”

    And this thread is about 1 post away from getting moved to the Rant Channel.
