Microsoft's latest ad: iTunes and the iPod are crazy expensive


"We've been wondering when we'd see the next Laptop Hunters ad from Microsoft, but it looks like the company's throwing a change-up: its latest 30-second spot features Wes Moss, Certified Financial Planner, explaining that iTunes "costs a lot" while Zune Pass "costs a little." The argument, of course, is that at a buck a song (or more), filling up your iPod costs way more than the $15 / month cost of the Zune subscription service, but we've got a feeling that Wes just won't convince as many people as Lauren and Giampaulo -- while we certainly think Zune Pass is a great deal, especially with the 10 free tracks a month now included, most people have plenty of music from all kinds of sources already, and an additional monthly bill in the current economy doesn't seem all too appealing. Plus, well, this argument has never really worked for services like Yahoo and Rhapsody in the past, so we're not sure it's going to work now. But that's just us -- we're sure you've got your own opinions, so check out the vid after the break and sound off."

i actually dont find the APPLE commercials funny, or informative.

the pc commercials, are more straight to the point and provide several benefits of owning a pc.

the ironic part is that a Mac is a "PC". People just seem to generalize like saying all facial tissue is considered "kleenex" when that is a brand not a type. Mac is a brand of PC like HP.
