I disagree that the "I'm a PC" ads are ineffective. Their repetition only highlights the diversity of people who use PCs. I find them an appropriate and effective response to the Mac "I'm a smug and condescending cool kid that knows more than you" ads.

Can't argue with that but I have always know NASA use IBM/Lenovo PCs on space missions.

"The ad is actually a counter-attack to Apple’s amusing "PC vs. Mac" but fails horribly in its presentation and annoying repetition."

I personally disagree with your statement. I don't think it is annoying at all, but maybe it's because I appreciate their point of view. It's a bit like a checkmate for apple's ads, showing the actual diversity of the PCs user base, and making the apple ads look like bigotry.

If anything this news further highlights that a lot of commercials are just another form of entertainment rather than product/service advertisement.

The new ad I am a PC ends with the new Microsoft catch phrase.
"Life without walls" nice but it begs the question. If you don't have walls, why would you need windows?
