Intel Pentium III - Blue Man Group ad campaign - Blue Man Group use what?
Many people may be aware of the countless ads, commercials and product packaging for Windows products that are created on the Mac (witness the "Where do you want to go today" ads from Microsoft a couple of years ago where most of the print ads were done in a standard Macintosh system font, "Chicago"), but here is a new twist. Intel recently began a new television ad campaign featuring the Blue Man group, a performance art group that has been around a long time, but has gained some new noteriety with the new show in Las Vegas. Now, perhaps Intel should have done a little research into their new shills, because it is a well documented fact (http://www.apple.com/creative/stories/blueman/index.html) that BMG uses Macintoshes to control their production. A big round of DUHs for Intel!

Intel is a processor not a windows application. Nor does Microsoft own Intel. Intel is an entirely separate company.

Well Alfredo, it seems you're wrong... Apple IS to use Intel microprocessors beginning in 2006: http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2005/jun/06intel.html

This just in: Apple switching to Intel chips. Steve Jobs announced at the WWDC keynote that Apple is switching to Intel processors. This slip up never made sense anyways, Microsoft and Intel are two completely separate companies.

yes but macintosh NEVER uses and most probably WILL NEVER use Intel chips; they use ones made by motorola i believe. Intel is also primarily associated with Windows. the two companies Intel and Macintosh are therefore quite the rivals.
