    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
