So, I was about to begin this post with a congratulatory note of sorts, directed at Microsoft's marketing dept. I was briefly interrupted by a magical TD pass by Jay Cutler, but now I'm back.
I went looking for the video of the ad I just watched on TV. I am not going to describe it, but it was a reasonable effort, if a decade late (in internet time). the first result I found was Microsoft's site for this particular campaign, http://imapc.lifewithoutwalls.com/ The glorious thing about this site, is that the first thing it tells me is I need Silverlight to view the site. How can I "get into the campaign" if I can't even view the fun parts of the site?
So, I have news for you, Microsoft advertising campaign: I'm a person. YOU ARE STILL A PC. I don't see how this does anything except make people who own a PC feel a little better about what they already are, which is a person with a computer. Windows just can't deliver on the feeling of life/computers just plain working- not even the advertising can do that!! That's Apple's bag, sorry.
Also, part of the campign was produced using Macs. Awesome. And the Broncos scored again.
