Looks like Microsoft is having a little taste of irony. Images from its ad campaign, were made with a Mac.
Four of the images that Microsoft made available on its PressPass site
today display the designation "Adobe Photoshop C3 Macintosh" when their
file properties are examined. The images appear to be frames from the
television ads that Microsoft will launch later today.
One of the images is of a real Microsoft engineer, identified
only as "Sean," who resembles John Hodgman, the actor who plays the PC
character in Apple Inc.'s iconic ads.
Microsoft hired ad agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky to create the
commercials, it's not surprising that they were using Macs since there
wasn't a "no Macs" clause in the agreement.
