In case no one else has posted about this... article here [itnews.com.au].
Hours after Microsoft posted a bizarre Web-based advertisement regarding an anonymous Macintosh user who had reportedly switched to Windows XP, the company removed the page amid reports that the information in the ad was fake.
I heard about this one on public radio. Could hardly believe that anyone would make such a mistake. One of the more bizarre details...
Perhaps even more confusingly, the photo that accompanied the page wasn't even a picture of [the purported user]: Instead, it was a stock photo, available for purchase elsewhere on the Internet.
Search Google News for microsoft mac to get more breaking news. MacWorld [maccentral.macworld.com] has the story too. ;)
Hi Robert - amusing article - however its more bizzare because the Aussie site claims the advert was true but that it had used a stock photo rather than the real person and if true why they pulled it remains a mystery...
Possibly if they only had one switcher compared to the series that ran on the Mac site their ad would have become a joke - 10 switch away one switches to - for example ..
Seems pretty misconcieved anyhow .. Anyhow only up a couple of hours and people are discussing it all over the net ... some people need to "get a life" :-)
