MacJury #1018: The Verdict on Microsoft’s ‘PC versus Mac’ Site (Part 1)

Microsoft recently published a PC versus Mac section on their web site to tout the benefits of Windows 7. How did they do? The MacJury takes the case, dissecting each of the focused areas, including Having Fun, Simplicity, Working Hard, Sharing, Compatibility, and Choice, as well as the Top 10 Reasons and the many flavors of Windows. Legitimate points are recognized, false information called out, and the overall delivery and message of the site are considered in deliberations that become heated at times, laughable at others. The panel who question the photoshopping of the model on the site and the contrived Twitter feed include John F. Braun, Peter Cohen, Pat Fauquet, john C. Welch and Tim Robertson.
