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 really think that, in part, one of the problems with Microsoft is that there is a generation inside it that was trained as a salesman/evangelist with the "Art of War" by Sun Tzu.

If they were, they certainly aren't showing their supposed training...

Otherwise, they'd stop trying to fight battles that others have already won and focus on winning battles that others don't even know need to be fought.
