Tally Ho! I’m a Mac, and I’m a PC…
I was surfing the net the other day when I happened to come across a British site with various articles. On the site they had video ads, and I saw two men standing on a white background in the video ad which was displayed to me.
It resembled the famous “Hello I’m a Mac, and I’m a PC” commercials, but the two actors looked different. So, I had assumed it was just a parody, like a few that are around on YouTube. I played the ad anyway, interested in viewing the parody, but to my surprise it turned out to be the British version of the commercial from Apple!
Here’s the URL to the british version of the commercials: http://www.apple.com/uk/getamac/
I don’t know about you, but to me they don’t even compare to the Western versions. Anyway, I did a bit of researching (if you can call it that) and managed to find one more version of the famed commercials. I managed to find only one other country version of the commercials, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there were more out there.
Here are the Japanese versions: http://www.apple.com/jp/getamac/
The Japanese ones are pretty good, about the same quality as the Western ones… I’m still not a fan of the UK commercials though.

Only five more days until I have possession of my condo!
I’ve finished signing my final mortgage papers with the bank and have everything done now except for meeting with the notary here and getting the title in my name and everything legally changed over. Hopefully that will take place tomorrow or sometime soon…
I’ve also set up the moving company, hydro, cable, etc. dates so I’m really just waiting to get the notary stuff done, then I’m moving in 5 days!
I should really start to pack…
Earlier today I went with my realtor to take some photos of my place to post here… well.. I took the photos while he hooked up my washer and dryer and stuff (they’re brand new and weren’t set up). He had a plane to catch for Costa Rica so I had to hurry with my photos, thus they aren’t the best photos and I missed some areas such as the laundry room.
Anyhow, here are some photos:
(Click to enlarge)
My kitchen… you’ve seen a photo before but now I have the lights on.
The dishwasher is brand new like everything else, but when it runs, it leaks! So it should be getting fixed tomorrow hopefully (Monday). It just wasn’t calibrated to close all the way I believe.. hopefully an easy fix.
Living Room… didn’t have time to put the lights on or the fireplace… remote controlled air conditioning… the door leads to the balcony/patio.
My gas fireplace…
This will be my office. Looks smaller in the photo…
The walkthrough closet from my office, leading into a cheater bathroom.
Just a shower in this bathroom.. no tub. That’s my front door to my condo you can see on the right.
Second walkthrough closet to second bathroom.. this one has a tub and shower.
That’s it for now.. good luck and good earnings!
