- Microsoft's Ad: After get mocked by Apple's ads for years, Microsoft hits back with a $300 million ad campaign: the first installment dubbed "Jerry and Bill". The YouTube link is here. Honestly I don't quite understand what message the ad wants to convey and thought it could be because my English is not good, after reading the reviews on the net (this one, for example), it seems most people don't either.
- Google Chrome: This browser really generates a lot of talks around the world. I have no intention to do any technical analysis here, but I just thought about what kind of strategies Google has by throwing resources behind this project. The most obvious motive will be trying to ease M$'s grip on web browser, and after that, my guess is Google wants to unify the user interfaces for both PC and portable devices (e.g. hand phones) like what Apple is doing, therefore building up a Google-centric kind of business model.
To me it all sound nice and warm as I choose to sit by the curb and see the war unfolds itself. It is always interesting to watch from afar.
