in case anyone was wondering what a computer was:

"A computer is a device that can be instructed to carry out arbitrary sequences of arithmetic or logical operations automatically. The ability of computers to follow generalized sets of operations, called programs, enables them to perform an extremely wide range of tasks.

Such computers are used as control systems for a very wide variety of industrial and consumer devices. This includes simple special purpose devices like microwave ovens and remote controls, factory devices such as industrial robots and computer assisted design, but also in general purpose devices like personal computers and mobile devices such as smartphones. The Internet is run on computers and it connects millions of other computers.

Since ancient times, simple manual devices like the abacus aided people in doing calculations. Early in the Industrial Revolution, some mechanical devices were built to automate long tedious tasks, such as guiding patterns for looms. More sophisticated electrical machines did specialized analog calculations in the early 20th century. The first digital electronic calculating machines were developed during World War II. The speed, power, and versatility of computers has increased continuously and dramatically since then.

Conventionally, a modern computer consists of at least one processing element, typically a central processing unit (CPU), and some form of memory. The processing element carries out arithmetic and logical operations, and a sequencing and control unit can change the order of operations in response to stored information. Peripheral devices include input devices (keyboards, mice, joystick, etc.), output devices (monitor screens, printers, etc.), and input/output devices that perform both functions (e.g., the 2000s-era touchscreen). Peripheral devices allow information to be retrieved from an external source and they enable the result of operations to be saved and retrieved."

Do people still get mad at dumb pandering? This is pretty transparently marketed towards Gen Z, so what's the big fuss? The way people talked about, you'd think she explained to her white cishet neighbor about why Apple is the progressive millenial's kid choice. Instead it's just a dumb silly line.

They even picked an actress with a role on some tv show where her gender isn't clear.

Anyway, she finished grade 9 like a month ago or some shit so no thread on here for a few years.

I remember people irrationally hating the "Get a Mac" ads, but now I bet they really miss them. Apple should bring the campaign back, but tweaked for [The Current Year™] with a personified iPhone and Galaxy. Maybe the latter blows up in one commercial, but then Apple would be called Islamophobic.

Hell, if both actors are men, they would be criticized for assuming the gender of inanimate objects.

I wonder what happened to the "it's okay if Apple does it but not when 'X' does it" crowd?

It's just an advertisement that tries to speak for the consumers interest and just comes across as a vanilla bland commercial, like many other consumer tech ads, just boring as fuck nowadays.
