Remember when Microsoft paid Jerry Seinfeld $10 million to lend some credibility to Bill Gates as a regular person? That was a decade after Seinfeld went off the air, after a decade of seasons that regularly featured Macs in the background. Clearly, Seinfeld as a character was not a Windows user. This explains why Microsoft went after “Family Guy” …the company is not a quick study, and clearly doesn’t watch these shows.
