They must have paid a lot to get on the main page front and to the right (almost center :shock: ).

dunno... I haven't seen the ad myself... what with all the discrimination, I'd assumed it would be a guy, or Justin Long. :wink:

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.


They already got me. I use their phone. :evil:


Back in yo cage traitor.


Sorry. I did not have a choice. I need to be able to support my boss and that means rocking the same equipment. A free phone costs nothing. ;)

haha oh man i came here to post the exact some thing!
What is up with all of this??
I mean i dont know if the people at Apple have really gone stupid, but i guess they didnt realize that there fanboys arent here....hell maybe they got confused with MacLife....
And it's interesting to think about all the ads on this website...AMD and all of that, like does that influence the writers writing? IDK....It's annoying that Money = Power.
Knowledge's power is limited now....mostly about the connections...rant....

No, not at all. I think one of the best examples of this can be found in the January 2005 issue, which featured a power supply roundup. Antec's entry scored a dismal '4' verdict, and in that same issue, Antec ran an ad on the back cover.

The Apple ads are mentioned briefly on this week's podcast. The guys (Will) don't seem to mind all that much.

Hey, I don't mind either. They pay for upkeep, as long as MaxPC doesn't turn to MaxMac I'm good.

To be honest I don't mind all that much either. I simply find the situation to be rather odd. Do you think Apple seriously considers Maximum PC readers to be potential customers?

It's odd but why waste time complaining about. I wish Apple paid more so we didn't have to pay for the magazine. People would complain regardless.


Is the apple ad really that much worse than than the NORMALBS... or do we just like to bitch :lol:

I have the sudden urge to use a one-button mouse.







Wait, that wasn't an Apple ad...
