Spoof ad mocks iPod
Microsoft has produced an internal video spoof of Apple's 'Get a Mac' ad campaign, according to one report. The ad, which was originally uploaded by ZuneBoards but was allegedly created by the Redmond-based software giant, praises Zune over Apple's iPod for its wireless song transfer capability and the iPod's perceived delicate nature. The advertisement also depicts the iPod as more difficult to load with music than the Zune, describing a lengthy process of looking up song lyrics on the internet before browsing to iTunes and finally entering credit card information to receive the purchased track. Finally, Microsoft touts the fact that its Zune player is available in a brown color.
