Maxpc is advertising apple now? I hit the best of the best link, to see if they changed it yet and blam! Apple ad?

I thought will and crew hated apples guts!?

But I guess anything for money nowadays.

LOL! this is in response to the study that said that macs are falling out of favor among college students. They all say "Buy a Mac for college, and get a free iPod touch"
I say keep them. I love seeing apple begging on their knees.

Flashy and annoying announcements tell you about a product that you don't care about and don't want.

All of a sudden, I have a need for an Apple product...


OK, I'm giving away my PC, and I'm going to buy a Mac Mini.

Advertisers are advertisers. I don't care what ads we're running, as long as they're not for companies that are going to scam you guys. We're not going to turn away legitimate companies who want to advertise on Maximum PC if they're not crooks.

It's not Maximum PC so much, it's the marketing/advertising department. They don't communicate with each other. All they care about is the money brought in. Apple is probably paying more than the other advertiser, it's all business.

In fact, they probably all use Mac's ;)

Just because this is Maximum PC, doesn't mean there can't be coverage of Mac's. Mac's are PC's remember (glorified, over expensive PC's, but still PC's).

If Steve Jobs wants to help fund a magazine or forum that brings us PC news and tips, that's fine by me! :lol: It's his money!

I talked to our publisher about the ads, and it turns out that the Apple guys specifically requested that they be placed on MaximumPC.com.

If I were you guys, the thing I'd be worried about is that the folks at Apple have identified you as potential customers, ready to make "the switch".

You'd better watch your backs.
