    Just found a new DirecTV video on my HR20, a how to video for the DVR scheduler. What I love most, for you Mac fans, is how they use Macs throughout the entire video. Maybe you all will see some Mac love for Media Share and PC (sorry, Mac) playback.

    It's actually a pet peeve of mine; a lot of creative houses use macs so their graphics and props are heavily mac-based. I think they would be more resonant if they were PC-based, not because PCs are better but because they are far more common.

    C'Mon, Stuart... we all know that they couldn't get it to work with Vista. That's why they used the Mac :hair:

    You would expect more PC use in these ads, especially coming from a company with strong associations with Intel through the old Viiv and Microsoft on the HDPC20. Another sign of disconnect between the organization and the ad agency.

    Or yes, maybe it's just a bone tossed to the mac world.

    AD agencies have never been "connected" to any of their other business entities. "Sure we can do anything you want", and it'll be ready tomorrow, b4 they have even checked on the feasilbilty of doing what they already promised with any other group in the organization.

    Remember when 2 different ad agencies used the same stock picture of a family watching TV? One for a cable company and hte other for a sat co (I beleive it was Dish)
