I’m a Customer.

Microsoft fights back to Apple’s long-lived “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” advertising campaign. Honestly, it is a rather futile attempt at winning customers from Apple’s customer pool. It works like this: if you use a PC (…and I use the term, PC, the way these companies use it. In all honesty, they are all personal computers or PCs.) So if you use a PC, you might switch to a Mac (like I did…). If you use a Mac, you’re unlikely to switch to a PC.

So unlike Apple, Microsoft’s true task is not to win over customers, but rather hold on to the ones they have. And the best way of doing that? Create a product that people want to use.

Rather than argue amongst each other about what OS is better, have the companies do the competing. This insures that you, the consumer, wins.

  1. y’know that only 3% apple buyers buy from apple again?

  2. and ~43% of all statistics are made up… [shrugs]

    All Apple owners I know are repeat buyers… not to say that that is a significant sampling, but if the percentage is so high, how come none fall in that 97%?
