Irony illustrated

This has nothing to do with spec fic or publishing, but I found it extremely ironic. My daughter has a MacBook. While we've always been a PC family, she's a design major so we figured she needed a Mac. It's a nice machine but after she dropped it, it stopped working. I tired to schedule an appointment with the Apple Store's "genius bar" function, where you identify the store you want and then pick a date and time for an appointment to come in. That function absolutely would not work when I used Firefox to get to their site, but it worked fine when I used Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Go figure! Maybe Mac and PC are as friendly as they look in those commercials? -)

I LOVE those comercials. It's the best advertising campaigne I've seen in years.

The majority of the world uses IE, I rarely come across anyone who uses Mozilla(?) or Firefox. Or maybe I just don't know it. Maybe that's part of the plan, most pc users are on IE (Yes) so make your site more accessable to the market your trying to take over.

It's just a thought. Ironic isn't it. :)

Well, I use web tracking software called Stat Counter (free if you want to try it), and it shows me what browser people are using. Firefox actually beats IE by a good bit. I think one reason is a lot of folks with Macs use it since it works on that platform, too! More irony . . .
