John Mayer and Steve Jobs, BFFs

John Mayer and Steve Jobs, BFFs

 

I was relieved when Randy Newman was the artist of choice for last week's keynote. Nothing against John Mayer as a person. He seems to have a good sense of humor and seems like a genuinely nice guy. But the guys music makes me want to nap the day away.

 

Well much to my disappointment, Prince Valium has been given a new MacBook Air. He didn't even have to show up to the Mac Expo. The guy sings a few songs and BAM, Steve's sending him new hardware.

 

Maybe if he was around during the lean years I'd give him a break. For example. was he nervously typing away on a PowerBook 5300 during the mid-90's knowing at any moment it could explode? Did he have to learn the intricate differences of the 601, 603 and 603E PowerPC chips in order to make an informed purchase? I doubt it, instead he dated Jessica Simpson and that chick from Ghost Whisperer.

 

I'd be much happier if Jeff Goldblum was spotted with a MacBook Air. That guy battled aliens with his PowerBook, and he was in the first iMac ads. Even Kevin Costner did that Lisa ad.

 

Where's the justice?

 

If you have a more deserving celebrity or you love John Mayer and want my head on a pike, drop your thoughts it in the comments section.

I have to say to anyone who believes John Mayer's music is low key hasn't given John Mayer Trio. Their brand of blues based rock may not be your cup of tea but anyone who hear it and calls it sleep-inducing must consider speed metal the only the thing that is upbeat enough.

John's laughing all the way to the bank - he could care less if you don't like his music. Ever notice that we guys tend to disparage singers like John Mayer, but the chicks dig him? Maybe there's a message in there somewhere...

i guess the point im taking from all this is, since i am not a chick , i dont dig john mayer and his pike flavored ways, but if he had just a little bit more money i might consider switching teams....wait does he smell like pike or does he taste like pike? i cant tell you how important the difference is...

Ha! I think he smells like pike! Seriously though-he reminds me of a white Stevie Ray Vaughn. No thank you. The ladies can have him.

John is an awesome singer. I'm just afraid that my Reality Distortion Field doesn't cover musical preferences.

Is being a John Mayer hater a requirement for working at Mac|Life or something? Seriously, seems like all of you have been doggin' on him lately. I know his greatest hits aren't the best (I'm pretty sick of "Daughters" and "Your Body is a Wonderland" is just plain cheesy) but his work as a whole is a lot better than 90% of the crap out there. Like, say, Jay-Z who you all wanted to perform last week? Just my opinion. :)

Michael Jordan needs Air, right? Air Mcnair? No?Who's that famous blonde airhead? Bill Cosby had an album titled "why is there air?".
