(YouTube link)

Entrepreneur Colin Robertson is at TED 2012 trying to give a talk about crowd sourcing solar energy, when he is interrupted by loading error messages that turn out to be from the group Improv Everywhere. Waiting for something to load should always be this fun! Oh yes, Robertson is also an IE agent. Link -via The Daily What

Uh oh. If this was a computer blog there would already be a flame war raging over hundreds if not thousands of comments.

Anyway, mac's never break down, have no bugs and their users never do anything stupid. If there's a problem, it's somebody else's fault. Definitely.

Now windows needs to get the BSOD to do something a little more entertaining than just be all blue & stuff. I'm sure it'd be a lot less distressing to pretty much everyone if instead of (or in addition to) a blue screen, a unicorn ran across the screen leaving a rainbow trail & shouting "DOOM".
