Hello, I'm a Mac!

"Domo! Ma-ku desu." "Konnichiwa. Pasu-kon desu." The PC/Mac ads, nihongo de. The cultural signifiers, they are strangely similar, but no John Hodgman, alas.

(Might have messed up the romaji there. Pasu-kon would be the J-transformation of "personal computer", "persu-con".)

Someday we will meet, and have a drink, and I will tell you of my adventures with the Japanese consulate in Houston. Until then... NO COMMENT!
It is a weird, weird culture from the American point of view. I'd adore to buy you one of whatever you're drinking some day!
