Apple pleads with Microsoft to cease Laptop Hunter ads
It all starts out that Apple creates a series of ads bashing Microsoft, so after several Mac vs PC commercials, PC finally got smart. They release their laptop hunter ads. Apple’s response? Well to piss and moan of course. Honestly, I had no idea that the laptop hunter ads were such a success and apparently neither did Microsoft until they received a charming phone call from Apple’s legal department. They requested that the ads be stopped, because they had officially lowered their prices. Therefore the ads were clearly no long valid.
According to Microsoft COO Kevin Turner, Apple had lowered their prices by all of about $100. At first Turner’s response was to say “Is this a joke? Who are you?” Once he discovered they were actually serious, he was ecstatic. Turner’s response to the phone call? “We’re just going to keep running them and running them and running them.” Whether you’re an Apple or a PC fan, you have to admit the battle between Microsoft and Apple has gotten far more entertaining in recent years.
