Um, actually, most people are that stupid. Sorry, I'm just not that comfortable with allowing companies to portray inaccurate information in their advertising.
Also, some of the claims made by Apple aren't inaccuracies - they are outright lies. Honestly, how much do you think Microsoft has to spend annually? You think $300 million is the majority of their budget, or are they spending much more developing Vista SP2 and Windows 7 than $300 million? Inaccuracies become distortions, distortions become lies - I don't think we should it slide.
I am not really a big fan of apple or their shots at Microsoft, however, I think these are funny. Its so clear these days that Microsoft is being run by business and marketing people rather than engineers. The whole windows XPerience and Vista names, stupid if you ask me, i would be just as happy with windows 6.0 or windows 6.1. Xbox 360 is the same way, sacrifice functionality and quality in order to deliver a product faster, then spend more time in marketing to hide any bad things that may arise.
I was just thinking the same thing. Why is this news. It sounded more like someone venting then news. It is called advertising you cannot take it seriously. It is up to the consumer to look up figures and make comparisons on a product they are interested in. So to be upset because company X,Y, and Z have stupid or immature commercials and base a decision on that or even argue it is very stupid.
I use a Mac from day to day, but to be honest I am shopping for a Vista based laptop, and maybe also will build a powerhouse desktop for around $1000 with a quad core processor, 16GB ram, and an ATI 4870 video card. Sounds like more bang for the buck when editing, than spending twice that for 1/8 of the hardware power.
