You know that Mac vs PC music in EVERY ad? Do you think it sounds like baby music? Because everyone at Gizmodo just got into a huge debate over it and are not talking to each other now. Tiebreaker please?
Surprisingly, our our poll yesterday revealed that Mac owners were running neck and neck with PC owners, each commanding 41% of the vote. Although Mac owners have maintained an extremely slight edge over the last few hours in actual numbers.
NPD's Household Penetration Study found a 3% uptick in Mac households for 2009. This makes sense! What's surprising (or not) is that of the 12% of homes with a Mac, less than 2% are Mac-exclusive.
Who would win in a chess match between Mac and PC? Chess seems like PC's game, but winning won't be easy on a board that's Apple's home turf.
Most people seem to take a hard line when it comes to their OS, but Adam's Windows to Mac adventure has got me wondering—how many converts are out there?
About a month ago, after multiple laptop disasters that in all likelihood were my fault, I decided to switch to a Mac after a lifetime of PC use. How's it been?
Either that or their agency just really loves Thomas Friedman. Anyhow, Microsoft's $300 million campaign to return fire after Apple's "Mac vs. PC" ads with our buddy John Hodgman-which, like it or not, were a wildly successful campaign and definitely helped shape the public's perception of Vista-has begun with this…

"The fastest Windows notebook we tested this year is a Mac," writes PC World about the MacBook Pro after it scored an 88 on its WorldBench 6 Beta 2 benchmark. Only problem is, it looks like that same publication reviewed a Eurocom D900C Phantom-X laptop that achieved a better score on that same benchmark, a 97…
For Mac fans, there is good news and bad news coming out today from analyst Gene Munster of investment bank Piper Jaffray.
