    There's a bit of news about the next ad over at New York Times.

    Apparently, they're going to take the Apple commercials head on ....

    ... and even have their own lookalike character.

    I have a very,very bad feeling about this ....

    I think it would be a mistake to get into a p***ing match with Apple. They'll lose.
    Well, they're screwed. The good thing they had over the Apple ads was that they were above them. When they're taking them head-on, they'll just lose. Best forget about the Windows brand now, you're burying it.

    And what kind of advertising 'phase' consists of two small ads aired within a week or something?
    "Yeah, it's weird, but this is just the introduction to a series.... that consists of one ad. Haha, gotcha."

    Why do you insist on just destroying your money, Microsoft? Awful Live apps, awful Vista ads, a multimillion dollar ad campaign that gets binned after two ads... WTF, guys? You're not even trying to compete anymore.
