Wordplay Wednesday

Postby SMWinnie » Wed Sep 07, 2016 10:57 am

From http://ken-jennings.com/blog/archives/5168, Ken asks:
There’s a certain company that introduced one of its most successful products in 1998. Take that brand name, and insert a new letter into it: a ‘p’ between the third and fourth letters. You’ll get a tagline that this company used in a popular TV ad campaign beginning in 2006.

What’s the company, the product, and the ad line?

I'll get the answer up here, as soon as I can figure out how to
Spoiler: show
put the entire thing on a plain, white background.

Apple iMac was introduced in 1998. In 2006, part of the tagline they used was "I'm a PC."
