    One would think that a multi-billion dollar company would have the intelligence and know how on pushing out clever and insightful ads showcasing the companies talents and achievements. At the very least, if hiring an ad company, one could be led to believe that the ad company would at least dot it's eyes and cross it's t's. In the case of the latest secret agent-esque Microsoft Office commercials, someone missed a couple of i's and t's. While Office is the main deal behind the ad below, hav...

    You know, after all the flack that AT&T; has gotten for boasting of a POS network and Apple for stubbornly sticking with them for the last 2-1/2 years, you have to admire AT&T;'s determination. Almost. AT&T;'s Luke Wilson ads that have making been getting some pretty frequent air time on TV go to prove how terrible is at making commercials in their defense. They're pretty much just as terrible as the Microsoft/Seinfeld duo. However, when AT&T; simply can't go on to put together a decent commerci...

    It can be recorded that Windows 7 does actually have me liking the whole Windows ecosystem again. Albeit not as much as I like Snow Leopard, still, Microsoft finally made right in the OS department with their upcoming release. However, just because I like their product doesn't mean I want to hear about it or get constant reminders that it exists. Case in point: A new, Microsoft sponsored, Windows 7 horn tooting Family guy dubbed "Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex’s Almost Live Comedy Show"...

    While I use an iPhone, the honeymoon phase is long gone. While the OS is still my favorite in terms of speed, ease of use, and eye candy, the hardware, BS policies of both Apple and AT&T;, and god awful coverage where I live mean I'm looking elsewhere. Still, I more or less like the little guy. Some of you however are sick and tired of hearing about Apple this and iPhone that. You wish they'd both drop of the face of the planet in a fiery ball of death. The day you can wake up, go through...
