On Wednesday, Apple’s market cap moved past Microsoft’s by $3 billion, which had CNN Money declaring Microsoft “no longer the industry’s alpha dog.”

CNN Money interviewed a couple experts on what Microsoft had to do to continue keeping up with the Jobses, with one analyst suggesting:

“They have to continue to try to find other businesses, otherwise growth is always going to be bound by the PC market. Wall Street believes in Apple because Apple continues to put out new products that capture the imaginations of the press and tech pundits.

I’m Not a PC. I’m Not a PC. I’m Not a PC. I’m Not a PC.

Once again, we will not be manipulated. We are not PC’s, dammit! Not now, not ever. PC’s aren’t cute. PC’s have no personality. PC’s are like that okay-looking bad kisser you meet at a bar and go home with whom you decide later on in the evening you don’t even have the energy to sleep with even though you really really need sex whom you then have to hastily kick out of your house because you’ve decided that how you really want to spend your evening is drinking alone and catching up on your TiVo.

Question: Who can resist the ineffable charms of a 4 1/2 year-old, tech-savvy, chubby-cheeked little Asian tater tot who emails her parents, doctors her pictures, has a pet fish named Dorothy, and tries to sell you a PC?

Answer: We can.

But it is. Oh. So. Hard. Because. She. Is. Our. Achilles. Heel. Damn. You. Bill. Gates.
