The PC is Actually a Mac

Remember those Get a Mac ads featuring Justin Long and John Hodgman as the personification of the Mac and PC, respectively? Well, in an ironic twist of fate, Hodgman is actually a longtime Mac user (since 1984).

Engadget has an interview, where we learned that Hodgman, aside from being the guy who played the PC, is also an author, an editor at the New York Times Magazine and a contributor to the Daily Show.

Here is the joke that is absolutely apt, though I once promised I would never make it: “I play one on TV, but I am not a PC.” It is true. I am first of all: not a computer, but a human being; and second of all: a Mac user, almost exclusively, since 1984. There was a brief period in the wilderness between 1997 and 2003. Let us not speak of it.

Oh, the irony of it all!
