Jobs vs Gates 
Saturday, June 24, 2006, 11:05 AM - TV
Is it just me, but do the "characters" in the new Mac vs PC commercials look alot like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates?

It's a good way of identifying which system is which, but it plays with computer stereotypes.

The commercials are popular enough that they've been parodied already.

It's the end of the media as we know it ...

Kind of ironic and funny that a mass media network is talking about its own demise: CBC's The End.

Monty Python is back ... at least at WNED in Buffalo & Toronto.

Don't you just hate it when TV stations postpone or cancel shows so they can air "special" events?

Like, for instance, WNED (PBS station in Buffalo & Toronto) postponing the last two episodes of Monty Python's Personal Best for two weeks so they can run their "monthly" pledge programming. If they were smart, they would replay all the episodes as part of the pledge week as that would have increased ratings for them. Sure he does quite an entertaining show, but how many times do you need to see yet another Andre Rieu show?
