Die Hard: Looks like Mac needs some help
Last night, my wife and I were watching some trailers downloaded over Live on the 360, and one of them was for "Live Free or Die Hard" when I noticed that the actor who plays Mac (Juston Long) on the Mac vs PC commercials was trapped in a car with McClane during a car chase.
My first thought was that it's the most insidious product placement I've ever seen. The anthromorphism of the Mac in the movie will be like plastering the logo all over the movie.
But my wife pointed out that it's quite the opposite. It's just proof that Mac needs UAC. If Mac has UAC, it would've pointed out that "You are about to enter a dangerous situation, are you sure you want to do this?" Maybe John Hodgman (PC) could show up in a saner situation where he stays out of trouble. <grin>
