Concerning the new Microsoft ads

So Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld.

They make a great team if you ask me. The ads make absolutely no sense, and most people will agree with me on that. But they’re funny! Just the fact that Bill has a Shoe Circus Platinum Member Card is hilarious. And it has that super-old photo of him on it! I mean come on! If you’re a g33k like I am, you totally lol when you see that.

And the second ad, it’s so random, it makes you go o_0 but it’s so funny! At least that’s my opinion.

Whether the ads will make Vista sales go up or not, doesn’t matter to me. I’m sticking with OS X anyway, and hey, and least it’s good entertainment. And it’s free! Well it’s advertisement, so of course it’s free. OK some of you might point out that in the end, advertisement makes you buy stuff, makes you spend money, so in fact advertisement is not free! WRONG! Just don’t listen to the advertisement. Look at it as I do: free entertainment.

In case you haven’t seen the ads yet, here they are:


By the way: this counter-proofs that YouTube is not full of crap after all.
On the other hand, maybe it is. But at least some crap is funny.

Photosynth is cool (but not cool enough)

I first heard about Photosynth when I saw the video by David Pogue (click on the video entry below that says Photosynth).
Watch that. You’ll immediately understand what Photosynth is all about. It’s a really cool concept! But, unfortunately, it doesn’t work on Macs yet. If you go to their website and try to look at something while on Mac OS X, it will say: “We’re sorry, but Photosynth currently doesn’t run on your operating system. Please see our system requirements listed to the right.”
Apparently, it wasn’t always that boring message. According to TUAW it used to display a much more ironic explanation. I’ll just quote from their original post:

If you thought the new Get a Mac ads were spot-on or funny, then you will definitely get a kick out of this. On Microsoft’s Photosynth website, they admit something that we’ve known for years: They’re not cool enough to run on Macs.
