He should worry about his blood pressure. His face is almost as red as her outfit.

I heard he and Jenson Button nearly got into a fight because he was hitting on Button's girlfriend during a pre-season meeting (I guess Bronson thought it would be a 'meating' ) to discuss Virgin possibly sponsoring Brawn GP.

I guess it means a Macintosh. For some reason their computers are considered cool, so I assume that if you call someone a 'mac' you mean he's a cool person.

Or at least that's his opinion of himself, that's he's a cool person. That's what mac owners are famous for

If the mac in your example is a very large person, would it be appropriate to call him a big mac?

I've experienced that myself once, ever so briefly. In 1995 I had a salesman demonstrate a Mac to me and for a few seconds I felt amazingly cool and superior. The feeling ended shortly after I asked about software compatibility.

But macs were not cool in 1995. Back then they were making "better" computers. They nearly went bankrupt. Then they decided to get that PR machine working and make "cooler" computers.

Yes, that was the start of the "cool" period. As you can see it's still pretty garish, they made them nicer looking gradually.
