Long is also known for his depiction of a Mac in Apple Computer's Get a Mac campaign. The campaign features commercials in which Long as a Mac and John Hodgman as a PC, are engaged in playful banter about "the strengths of the Mac platform and weaknesses of the PC platform." Despite his various roles as computer geeks, he admitted to CraveOnline, "I'm very, very computer illiterate... I get the worst of both worlds; I look like a geeky hacker but I don't know anything about computers".
