Seems like Microsoft might *cough* FINALLY be getting some advertising right. Microsoft’s latest Laptop Hunters ad follows a mom and her kid. Lisa and Jackson say they need a computer which is “fast” because they need to “look up stuff” before they “get to baseball.” (uh… ok) They have a a sub-$1500 budget. Somewhere in the middle they take a look at a Mac — which Lisa notes are “popular at this age” (total Apple snub… “they’re for kids!”). Regardless, they’re both so turned off by the cute-but-small computers that they hurry back to the affordable VAIO section and make off with a 16-inch laptop.
About Paul Spoerry
I’m a groovy cat who’s into technology, Eastern Thought, and house music. I’m a proud and dedicated father to the coolest little guy on the planet (seriously, I’m NOT biased). I’m fascinated by ninjas, the Internet, and anybody who can balance objects on their nose for long periods of time.
I have a utility belt full of programming languages and a database of all my knowledge on databases… I practice code fu. Oh, I’ve also done actual Kung Fu, and have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
