Goodbye "Get a Mac" ads - Despite the FUD, I'll miss you

It seems that Apple's award-winning "Get a Mac" ads are no more.

It seems that Apple's award-winning "Get a Mac" ads are no more.

I've been wondering where these ads had gone. We saw the last one back in October of 2009, and since then we've not had a peep of propaganda from "Mac" or "PC".

Shame.

I really liked those ads. They never made me want to buy a Mac, and even though the FUD content was very high, I admired the brutal nature of the ads. They had a knack of homing in on those chinks in Microsoft's armor. There was also just that something about them that managed to hit the spot. Whether you love Apple or hate Apple, I'm pretty sure you'll agree that they were pretty funny.

The ads are now banished off Apple's website. But don't worry, you can still catch them on YouTube (along with a ton of spoofs).

 

What ads will we see next from Apple? No idea, but it's a fair to assume that Ellen won't be asked to appear in one.
