Microsoft I'm sure most of you are aware of the advertisements going back and forth between Apple and Microsoft. Apple started out with the "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" campiagn, and Microsoft responded - after a long wait - with the "Laptop Hunters" ads. Recently, Apple made some price cuts, and according to Microsoft, the Cupertino company's lawyers contacted Microsoft, demanding they take down the ads.

This is not news, it is simply hearsay.

Would Apple's lawyers really phone Microsoft and say "Hey, you need to stop running those ads, we lowered our prices." Do you really think this is how lawyers do business?

And the Microsoft crowd applauded knowing Apple lowered their prices? Microsoft should be saying 'Oh shit!, what have we done?'
