Default Microsoft Reports Hurting Apple's Feelings With Laptop Hunter Ads

After years of being belittled by the amusing (though quickly tiresome) Apple Mac Ads, Microsoft announced last year they would launch a $300 million dollar campaign to air commercials of their own.If you are unfamiliar with the ad wars between Microsoft and Apple, we suggest hopping out from your rock and popping over to Youtube for a quick search...

Hopefully they don't do what Apple does in their ads and blatantly lie about their products.

I hate most the Apple computer commercials for the sole fact that all they do is bash Windows rather then just promote their product and take the higher road

I gotta admit alot of those commercials are funny. Alot of people can relate to the whole vista user protection crap. (not that it is crap)

I hate both sets of commercials. I also think that both companies are being petty attacking each other like that.

I do not like Windows but I do like modern PC hardware.
I like Mac OS X but do not like modern Apple hardware.
I like ooold Apple hardware(early-mid 90s) and also like oold Mac OS versions(also early-mid 90s).
I like the ooold hardware and OS even more when I put a CF card and Radeon 7000 in a mid 90s PowerMac or even overclocked 68k and run Mac OS 7.6.1. >:) Smokin!

..ok, now I am just getting distracted :/
Please continue the commercial hate. :)
(and steve jobs is an arrogant asshole. (no, I do not praise him, he was not at Apple when the Macs I like most were made))
