Oh Boy! Microsoft is launching the 'counter attack' with new TV ads!<br><br>[color:blue]"Microsoft wants its partners and customers to know that it’s done letting its competitors and critics walk all over Windows Vista:<br>“We know our story is very different from what our competitors want us to think,” Brad Brooks, Corporate Vice President of Windows Consumer Product, told attendees of Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference in Houston during a keynote address on July 8. “Today we are drawing a line and are going to start telling the real story” about Vista.<br>While Brooks didn’t call out Apple by name (he instead referred to a “pretty noisy competitor out there”), he made it clear that Microsoft is finally going to hit back via ad campaigns, including the $300-million-plus one it has under development with Crispin Porter Bogusky. (Sadly, Microsoft didn’t show off during the keynote any of the new ad collateral that Crispin Porter is creating.)</font color=blue><br>[color:green] linko</font color=green><br><br><br>[color:blue][/b]Hodie mihi.

LOL... the funny thing for me is that I know about 7 people who work there.... and they are all using Macs.<br>Of course I don't know if the guys I know are working on this particular ad campaign... <br><br>Wouldn't it be great if we could have a lil Apple logo on their ads... down in the corner... "Made on a Mac".<br><br>[image][/image]

Yeah... they've got Sprite, VW, Bud and a slew of others. They did the Bud ads where Reynolds and others are sitting around saying "If you poke it you own it". (sorry poly).<br><br>Spend 10 minutes on their site...<br>http://cpbgroup.com/<br><br>[image][/image]<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by NucleusG4 on 07/09/08 07:01 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

LOL to funny_ guess we better brace our selves for pants loads of gussy ads of people loving their Vistas <-- the real story<br><br>Maybe its just me but in true MS fashion they are also sending the wrong message .<br><br> [color:blue]Windows Vista Compatibility Center, that is designed to provide users with a single place to check whether specific hardware and software is compatible with Vista.</font color=blue> - Sends the warning flag a special place you should go before buying Vista<br><br>The slogan: [color:blue]“Move to Windows Vista with Confidence.”</font color=blue> <-- ahhh so what was it before "lack of confidence" so now it comes with confidence right out of the box - but remember you must first check the special web site = Windows Vista Compatibility Center<br><br>"Buy a new PC with genuine Windows Vista Business or Windows Vista Ultimate and receive [color:blue]free coaching</font color=blue> and support from Microsoft to help you get the most out of Windows.” ----- Coaching "wtf" does it come with cheerleaders too ?? kinda insulting or maybe PC Vista users really do need a coach <br><br><br>
