I'm Not a PC: John Hodgman Hearts Apple

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 7 comments

Say it ain't so!

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?

    WHAT A REVELATION. No, really, what the fuck is the point in this article?

    Ofcourse someone employed to be in Apple commercials is going to say they use Apple products whether they do or not in reality, doesnt take a genius to work that one out.

    Sometimes I wonder about the people who post news on this website and how someone came to the conclusion that they were qualified for the job.
