    I just got a text from a friend of mine who is big into Peep Show and he told me that Mitchell and Webb the two main actors in the series are now the UK face of the Apple Mac vs PC ads in the UK

    Bill Gates will be on The Daily Show tonight and will come face-to-face with the "PC" from the commercials (I forget the guys name).

    Pretty funny commericals. I like the Virus and Restarting ones.

    John Hodgman, I think.

    I saw the ad in a london paper yesterday.

    Guess which one is the PC (and not the one that got his knob out in Confetti)

    I'm beginning to think people should have a license for internet access. Reckon they should also have to demonstrate a certain level of competence, much like driving.

    If the internet had licenses, Dvorak would definitely have the competence. He however is kinda like the old guy that has had a mid-life crisis, he bought a new fancy fast car (got published) and now feels that he has to show off (write articles that will get either group pissed off) and steal as much of the show he can from other people.

    I also believe that motorists should be retested for driving competence every 10 years after the age of 50, or maybe 60.
