Microsoft has enlisted the reality-television series "Pawn Stars" in its ongoing campaign to bash rival Google.

An online video ad released Tuesday mimics the plot set up of "Pawn Stars," which features people toting precious or odd objects for appraisal at a Las Vegas pawn shop. In Microsoft's fictional telling, a woman is trying to trade in a Chromebook, a no-frills laptop powered by Google software.

"The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste, they have absolutely no taste."

I don't understand this argument really. If you don't have wifi, what is it you are doing on your computer? If I am not at home or at work, I'm not doing anything on my computer. Do you guys go out in the wilderness and need to do some spreadsheets or what?

I think for 90% of people, the only time they use their computer is when they would have internet. Still I think the models with 200MB free internet make a lot of sense, and in some cases don't cost much more.

Please stop this lame strawman argument.
