    Have any of you seen this bogus commercial on TV lately ?

    Come on... BSOD on a Macbook. LOL. How can these guys get away with crap like this.

    There's better free software out there that can "Clean up" a PC to run smoother.

    I would not even look at their website when i saw this ad. :laugh:

    +1 mate. I can't stand to watch it even when I'm visiting someone. It's commercials, reality shows and sitcoms that are so not funny or interesting. :(

    Well, statistics showed that out of the hour you get in Super Bowl, its 12 mins of playing and the rest are ads and stuff like that. The only shows I watch nowadays are Spongebob (yes, Spongebob, I like their comebacks and enjoy Patrick's stupidity) and Mythbusters for their explosions.

    I stopped watching mythbusters when the back up crew became unbelievably dependent on scripts. I feel like they wouldn't even know the other person's name without a cue card to read off of...

    Brainiacs is pretty sweet for explosions 'n' such. It's more chemistry related, but still pretty cool. And British. The British still know how to do TV :)

    Props, I say. It takes a real man to admit to watching Spongebob. :laugh:

    Should Apple be allowed to run their BS ads? Should AT&T be allowed to run their BS ads?

    It is amazing what they can get away with, as long as it has a very small bit of truth to it.

    Wow. Tough crowd.
    I guess I'm not going to do a TV advert for my new software program that shows you what key you just pressed really big in the middle of the screen.

    I wish I could say the same. I got the BSOD on 70% of my startups with win7. I've reinstalled it 5 times and turned off the MS office 2007 updates through win update. Very strange that it was the updates in that program that BSOD my startups from what I could figure out...
