Right around the time Windows Vista came out, Microsoft was engaged in a PR campaign where they would give a blogger an Acer laptop loaded with Vista (see above picture) and not ask for it back. Free laptops mean good reviews, right? The whole thing blew up in Microsoft’s face, so in mid-2009, you’d think it’d learn its lesson, right?
Nope. Microsoft is out attacking Apple again with this whole “real life stories” bullshit campaign (they use actors). This time around, Microsoft will send you a laptop for six months plus a copy of Office 2010. Of course, you’ll be “reviewing” it, but what teenager wouldn’t feel great about getting a laptop for six months? More deception and bullshit from the best of the best, folks: Microsoft.
