Pharrell Williams: “I’m A PC… Except Not Really”

Last week we discussed Jerry Seinfeld getting dumped by Microsoft in favor of the high-powered trio of Pharell Williams, Eva Longoria, and Deepak Chopra. It's looking like the folks over Microsoft vetted these candidates less than Sarah Palin. Longoria owns a MacBook and Chopra has blogged approvingly of iPods, but the kicker, I think, i…
