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."

'Hanging on is quiet desperation is the Microsoft way'

apologies to Pink Floyd and Dark Side fans myself included(I was at the 1st ever performance of it 20-Jan-1972)
but to 'dis' a competitors product like this is a sign of (IMHO) desperation in the redmond camp.
