Is a man's nipple erotic? If, dear reader, you answer yes to that question then perhaps Microsoft's latest efforts to advertise its wares should be slammed for promoting so-called sexting among young people. Earlier this week the software vendor unveiled its KIN "social phone", which is a mobile that nods happily in the …
QA for their adverts is like the QA for there software
wouldnt touch M$ crap with a barge pole.
Perhaps you should QA your spelling
It's the punctuation and grammar that needs checking rather than the spelling :P
Can't see the keyboard...
...for the breast!
If the guy has "breasts"
someone fell down slightly on targeting the youthful gym-going market, rather than the fat gynecomastic nerdslobs that are already amply catered for by the DROID
...mmm man-boobs! -- phawww!
(...Did that sound gay?)
Are you a moron or something? Where have you been the last 5 years? Windows fans & users love bloat!
What a strange blog post.
I wonder what they would have made of that Aussie domain hosting ad with Pam Anderson and her foxy friend. Probably it would have made their heads explode :(
I see you've replace the 'S' with a '$', a witty change based on the propensity for big business to want to make money. Hilarious.
But why hide such inventive genius behind a cloak of anonymity?
he's a $hithead... Anyone who still uses the tired old M$ moniker needs to get a life.
"Anyone who still uses the tired old M$ moniker needs to get a life."
Anyone who still uses the tired old MS shitware needs to get a grip.
There, fixed it for you?
"he's a $hithead... Anyone who still uses the tired old M$ moniker needs to get a life."
You just used it too.
The New Busy?
You mean the way Vista makes you wait hours for anything to finish? As compared to, say, the old XP busy that was only minutes?
Ouch, formic acid is nasty stuff, don't want to have that... Leave it to the ants, really.
Must be nice
Not having to actually work for a living, I mean to say.
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
GET A GRIP CONSUMER REPORTS.
and don't forget...
Don't forget the 'Im a PC' adverts that showed 6 year old kids uploading pictures of themselves to the internet without any adult supervision.
I think they deserve an special prize for repeated marketing fail. The polish website race change still makes me crack up.
A young man exposing a naked breast? Quick, let's shut down all the beaches.
The most annoying thing...
...about ads like these is their forced folksyness and jangly hippie soundtracks.
Gets right on my tits. As it were.
You sure this wasn't an Apple ad?
You're the APPLE of my eye, the song very prominently announces.
More like the new illiterate
Saw one of the Hotmail ads at Wimbledon tonight:
"The new busy learns hang-gliding in their sleep"
... "learns" ??
Yes, then they can have a follow up meeting to discuss the 'learnings'.
But how do you know it's not singular?
I though that "The New Busy" was like "The New Man" -- in other words an individual rather than a group -- which would make that sentence grammatically correct.
because then it would need to say "in his or her sleep", not "their".
All the other ads are plural, see the link from the article: http://windowslive.com/campaign/thenewbusy/
I won't mention the use of "their" as that, arguably, has gained a gender neutral singular usage.
For the retards who dont know what Gynecomastia means!
YES I did know what this was before! oh hang on....
How dare they only show a male nipple!? They need to make this right by showing lots of ladies nipples too! If they don't want to put this on TV then email me then direct... that'll be fine...
The main problem seems to be...
... it doesn't actually tell you what kind of phone they're advertising!
