In case you didn't know, that PC guy is funny

Who would've thought that when the first of the MAC/PC TV spots were run, they would be responsible for launching the entertainment careers of both stars?

Justin Long is a burgeoning and possibly bankable character movie actor with several ensemble movies coming out in the next few months (most notably for this writer, Zack and Miri Make a Porno) while John Hodgman has become a national humorist and best-selling author.

TED.com (always a great site for thought-provoking and entertaining lectures) goes for the latter performer by bringing its viewers a great 16+ minute story by Hodgman titled A Brief Digression on Matters of Lost Time. I think that he even works in a toss-away reference to Star Trek IV. Truly, he's a great storyteller and I just wish I could tell a tale a well as he can.
