Ok... this may sound REALLY goofy but...

Is it just me or does the initial start up sound on the iMac sound exactly like the opening not to the Sinead O'Connor song "Nothing compares 2 U" ROFLMAO!!!

I am dead serious, EVERY SINGLE time I turn on my imac from being off, that sound plays, and in my head for the next 3 hours I am singing the Sinead O'Connor song. "It's been seven hours, and fifteen days...."

"Nothing Compares"...That's how I feel about my Mac!

It's been seven hours and fifteen days
Since you crashed that day
I go out every night and sleep all day, dreaming of you
Since you crashed that day
Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can pay for that antivirus software at a fancy PC store
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues
`Cause nothing compares
Not even PC with Vista

It's been so lonely without you here, I hate leaving you
Like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling when I'm away
Tell me baby where did I go wrong
I could put my arms around every (PC) I see
But they'd only remind me of you
I went to the doctor n'guess what he told me
Guess what he told me
He said boy u better try to have fun
No matter what you do
But he's a fool
`Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

all the Apple trees that I planted
In the back yard
All died when you went away
I know that living with you baby was sometimes hard -surfin on Safari
But I'm waiting to give it another try with Intel
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you

Sinead Rules!!!!

I surmise Prince should be in on the commercials too, since he is the one who wrote the song, and sang it first.

No... Prince (or whatever he is calling himself these days) messed his image up with all the names=symbols thing... we can't let him do the same to our beloved Apple :p :p :p

Next thing you know Apple will be recognized by some apple with a bite out of it symbol... err.. I mean... wait?!?!

Have you heard the stereophonics version?

It's slightly less "produced" and is better in some ways than o'connors version IMO... But they're both brilliantly cheesy and great
