Bill Gates Is Cooler Than Steve Jobs (for about 5 minutes)

Bill Gates capitalizes on the ongoing writer’s strike by employing the best script writers to actually make himself appear cool. For a few minutes, in a short movie about his Last Day at Microsoft, the ‘Chairman’ is seen at his self-depreciating best. The premiere at CES 2008 features cameos by the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Bono, Hillary Clinton, Guitar Hero, Barack Obama, Steve Balmer, Al Gore, Steven Spielberg, George Clooney, Jon Stewart, and Jay-Z. Gates is typically self-conscious at the end of the short when he states, “I really don’t think it’s an accurate representation of what’s likely to happen [on my last day] but it was fun to put together.” That’s just in case we think the movie is real, right Bill?

Zune Is Ass Backwards

I feel guilty beating up on the Zune, but Microsoft just makes it so easy.

Advertiser and Consumer Break-up Thanks to Microsoft

As stated in the synopsis on Dailymotion:

The Break-Up’ – soon available on www.bringtheloveback.com – is about the relationship between an advertiser and a consumer. They’ve agreed to meet in a restaurant. The man’s feeling perfectly happy, until the woman makes a painful announcement: she wants a divorce. In the course of their conversation she makes it clear to him why she is leaving him. And he makes it very clear that he doesn’t have an empathic bone in his body. At the end of the movie the woman walks away disappointed but determined. The advertiser stays behind alone. Go and have a look at http://bringtheloveback.com

“Hi, I’m an Advertiser.”
“And I’m a Consumer…”

This is actually a viral ad for Microsoft Digital Advertising Solutions. It’s a little obvious, but surprisingly good, and feels very not Microsoft. The irony is that Microsoft has played the Advertiser roll many, many times themselves.

Zune Becomes Slang for Wannabe. Ouch.

The Zune, Microsoft’s supposed iPod killer, has just been dealt another blow by Advertising Age’s Media Guy Simon Dumenco. In his glossary of must-know media terminology for 2007:

ZUNE: Microsoft’s new music player. Also [slang]: a poseur; a wannabe. Usage: “Dude, you look like such a Zune in that shirt.”
