MAC v PC
Which side are you on?
PC user: Older, square or right-leaning mainstream. Actually, according to personal computer sales worldwide, PC users make up 89 per cent of all users. Mac user: Young, self-satisfied, left-leaning hipsters. Not all of them, surely?
Video gamers: Overweight, acne-ridden males, living in their parents’ basements. Actually, all kinds of people play games.
Female gamers: Overweight, acne-ridden females, destined to grow old with their cats. Or thin, sexy nerd girls who play with boys. Actually, they’re as diverse as male gamers.
Cosplayers: Overweight, pimply Anime and Star Trek geeks who dress up as their heroes because they have no life. Actually, Cosplay conventions attract all sorts of costumes and roleplay and offer generous prize money.
Facebook user: Inane and complaining teen who’s addicted to quizzes, changing their relationship status and Farmville. Actually, Facebook is the second-most popular website in Australia, after Google.
Twitter user: Opinionated chatterbox who thinks you care what they had for lunch. Actually, it’s new media; there are personal accounts, news sites get personal, and interactive TV is a new trend, as evidenced by ABC’s # qanda.
