What’s Up With Microsoft’s Ad Agency?

leave a comment

There was yet another Microsoft “I’m A PC” ad during the World Series tonight. 10-12 lo-res video images of people saying, “I’m a PC” with the person’s URL listed in the lower right-hand corner of the ad.

My daughter, who was watching the end of the game with me, looked at me after the ad was over and said, “I was expecting that to be funny.”

I… was expecting it to make sense.

The Lady Doth Protest Too Much, Methinks

leave a comment

It appears that Apple’s so unimportant that Microsoft deems it necessary to tell us how much it doesn’t matter… almost every day.

Apple had a big launch of a new product, and they launched at scale in a lot of new countries with a lot of new [wireless] operators. This quarter, RIM is having its big launch, and at some point we’ll have our big launch. We’ll have to see where things normalize.

Microsoft implosion imminent, methinks…
