Microsoft's Latest Dumb Ad: iPods Cost $30,000 to Fill Up
May 12, 2009 15:30
The Laptop Hunters price assault on Macs has shifted to iPod and iTunes: It'd cost $30,000 to fill an iPod, but Zunepass fills up a Zune for cheap. This is a retarded ad.
Why? Because it ultimately cheapens what it's promoting as a consequence. Zune 3.0 is fantastic in its own right—better than iTunes in many ways for music lovers—and Zunepass's 10 free songs a month is a legitimately brilliant stroke. This throws away everything that's great about Zune for some stupid price argument that's going to sway precisely nobody, since everybody downloads music illegally anyway.
How about just telling people what's great about Zune? That's what Apple does, and it seems to be working pretty well. [YouTube via Ars via Engadget]]
