It was always said that one major weakness in Microsoft and its strategy is advertising even though they put millions into it. It looks like whoever their creative advertising director is now, they have got the right kind of ideas to start a conversation. I have seen a wealth of strong Microsoft related ads for many products. Keep them coming.

Hilarious add really. If you get out the part of the price comparison (Windows 8 tablets have around 30 GB free only for the user and should be compared to 32 GB tablets in price) the add is really great.

hilarious. Apple watch. Do something competetive unless you want to be forgotten and became another company which is known only because it's struggling in the shadow of samsung.

WIndows apparently has become what apple once was and still would like to be. A neat, simple and fast ui. In direct comparison iOS looks oudated and too childish.

It's funny. Last time I checked, Apple's iPad(s) are the highest selling tablets on the market.
