I’m a long-time Apple fanboytm, so when I see that a new Apple product event is about to drop, I wait for it with the same impatient anticipation that consumed fans of Game of Thrones or The Sopranos.
Apple held its latest event today, entitled “One More Thing,” plagiarizing the famous Steve Jobs line. The company introduced three Macs built around its own silicon architecture that it calls the M1 chip.
One More Thing did not disappoint, although the highlight of the event for me turned out to be a huge surprise.
Apple brought back John Hodgman as “PC,” and it was a drop-the-mic moment. If you’re not familiar with Apple’s “I’m a Mac and I’m a PC” ads from the early 2000s, I invite you to check out some on this YouTube channel. They are hilarious.
Anyway, Hodgman shows up at the very end after Apple CEO Tim Cook had already signed off.
It was sort of like how Matthew Broderick resurfaces at the end of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off to tell everyone to go home because the movie is over.
Hodgman bursts on to the screen and says “Stop! Hang on! Wait! One more thing.” Then as the totally uncool PC, he demands to know why Apple is making all these advancements.
I laughed out loud when PC demonstrated how “fast” he is. Check out the whole Apple event or fast forward to 44:29 to watch Hodgman’s performance.
Definitely worth it.
Oh, and one more thing (apologies). Apple’s new M1 computers, the MacBook Air, the Mac Mini and the 13-inch MacBook Pro, all look incredible. Can’t wait to get my hands on them.
