Microsoft Guns Against Apple In New PC Marketing Push

In its many years of marketing Windows, Microsoft has never really taken direct pot shots against its #1 competitor Apple, but that's changing in a new ad campaign designed to make users realize the shortcomings of the Mac platform.
Microsoft's Windows 7 website now has a section entitled "PC vs. Mac," a clever spin on the name that Apple used for it's long-running "I'm a Mac, and I'm a PC" commercials, which were dubbed the "Mac vs. PC" ads.

In the new Windows site, Microsoft takes jabs at Apple over the fact that Macs can't play Blu-ray movies, there's no support for 3G connectivity, and of course there is substantially less choice when it comes to software.

It's a pretty interactive site that actually does a pretty decent job of telling consumers why choosing a Mac is the wrong decision. Again, that's a message Microsoft has opted not to take before, which was probably a mistake.

It's a great time right now for Microsoft to reclaim ownership of the computer market. Apple is too focused on its iPhone and iPad right now to really come after Windows with full force, so I'd expect this online campaign to transition over to TV ads in the not too distant future.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
