    If you are a Windows 7 user, this is definitely the “feel good” video of the day. Mac users probably won’t like this video as much. Thanks to ukorzing for the video.

    it's really well done technically...but I'm struggling to understand exactly what the message is short of Apple bad, Microsoft good? :confused:

    Does it have to have a message? I just thought it was a cool, funny little video...

    not being critical, I just don't understand the point the author is trying to get across other than being entertaining...which I hope you realize it wasn't done for our pure enjoyment.

    this video made me erupt in a short cackle. having previously worked for an apple store. that would have been an awesome reason to get the fuck out of that store. high fives and stage dives all around. nicely done.

    Nicely done technically, little slow building up though, nearly stopped watching it for that reason. I'm about as anti-Apple as they come and didn't really read too much into it all. All you AppleApologists should pop a chill pill LOL.

    Awesome video. Everything looks real, but they should have left the rocket shot at the end out. The explosion did not look real enough to be in that video.

    Quality rivaling that of some decent motion pictures, with the humor that only the Internet can provide.

    Gotta love it. Good stuff.

    Me too. I was waiting for a punchline.

    I use both Windows based PCs and Apple hardware but not sure what this video is all about. Would this vid make more sense if I was awfully tribal and could only bring myself to use one hardware vendor?

    Umm, it's the Terminator. Technically if he travelled back in time to take out Apple, and supports Microsoft that would mean Apple is the good guys who will try to fight Skynet while Microsoft will help build Skynet. ;)

    Unless it's a reprogrammed T2000 sent back in time to destroy Apple who would build the evil liquid metal terminator.

    I didn't either, but anything with a Terminator in it gets bonus points.

    So the robot was able to do all of this without "manual interference"? I mean, all of this walking, turning around, picking up the gun/briefcase, putting it down, etc.. all on its OWN? I'd be impressed if a robot did all that.

    I took it the other way. Microsoft / Windows = Skynet.

    That video would've been a lot more entertaining if it had been about 45 seconds instead of 4 freaking minutes.

    That was amazing looking, clever, and high quality. Two thumbs up, despite whatever "message" he intended. Sometimes a kickass video is just a kickass video.

    Well, Microsoft would be Cyberdyne Systems.

    Skynet was the artificial intelligence system created by Skynet, so...Bing?
