Jerry Seinfeld vs. John Hodgman and Justin Long

By Brian Briggs

It has been reported that Jerry Seinfeld has been tapped to be the new spokesperson for Microsoft's Windows Vista. His main adversaries the Mac and PC guys from the Apple ads, Justin Long and John Hodgman, have a big headstart on him. Seinfeld hasn't even done an ad yet, but that hasn't stopped us before. Here we breakdown the showdown between these spokespersons in a head-to-head comparison of some relevant and not so relevant categories.
