I have no idea:- is T-Mobile a crappy network as well? (It's good here in Germany - the coverage I mean)

I currently use T-Mobile and the cell service is fine. It doesn't have coverage in some of the "out in the boonies" places I visit, but here in the "city" it's fine.

I think the irony Renegade referred to is that T-Mobile is using the Mac vs PC theme to show T-Mobile as better than the iPhone.

Yes. It works for me.

I never liked the Pepsi challenge commercials or the old 80's Burger King commercials that compared themselves to Coke or McDonalds. It always seemed dirty to me, in part because there was nothing intelligent about them; it was just some freak screaming "I'm better than him!"

But this was just funny. It picks up on how douchy the Apple ad is and flips the tables on them and AT&T all at the same time. It's the irony there that just cracks me up. The commercial is well done to that end.
