Apple's Siri narrates Windows 8 tablet ad
posted by Alan F. / May 22, 2013, 9:12 PM
The ad, with the products surrounded with a white background, turns even more Applesque when Siri asks, "Should we just play chopsticks?" This, of course, was the sound track for the first Apple iPad mini ad that showed both the 7.9 inch slate and the 9.7 inch full-sized Apple iPad playing "Heart and Soul" using Garage Band.
At the end of the spot, we see that the 64GB Apple iPad is priced at $699 with the ASUS tablet priced at $449. It might not result in uproarious laughter as the wedding day ad, but it does show that Microsoft is willing to pull out all of the stops to promote Windows Phone and Windows 8 tablets.
By the way, if you were watching the season premiere of Master Che

I think business will really pick up with Haswell and quad core baytrails finally beating Arm in battery like while maintaining a huge edge in performance. Bay trail will bring in the people who want a tablet for $400-$500 but want good performance for that price since the atoms are junk compared to the i5s. They just need to axe Windows RT though, x86 is the future since the power consumption is fixed for mobile and RT is a failure.

This is probably one of my favourite ads. Siri doing the narrating is the best part XD

MS finally making good ads for their tablets. The first major push for the Surface ads were awful and did nothing to make the tablet sound appealing.

Nice ad, but it won't stop the iPad from continuing to be the top dog. With a new faster, better, prettier iPad launching, with an even better OS ads like this will only sell the iPad.

Sued for what exactly? Coke and Pepsi have been showing each other's products on their respective "taste test" commercials for years. I am also pretty certain that Microsoft has teams of lawyers that review their content before it gets released to the public...

From what I know it's not legal to show someone's brand for any comparison. Especially when it's going to be showed to the public. It will give a bad impression on the image of the product that the other brand compared and said that their products are much better. This will result to lawsuits and eventually be brought to the courts.
