Microsoft ads

Don’t you just hate those Microsoft ads? They are all over the Nature website, train stations, etc, and drive me to distraction.

To anyone on this planet who hasn’t seen them, they consist of people with dinosaurs’ heads going round making "IT 101" errors, the tagline telling us that with the new MS Office, this wouldn’t happen. Well, I should think not! The level I am talking about is an outbox facility for sending email, or an office intranet so you can find documents "for that vital meeting"….I ask you. The ads will be meaningless to anyone who doesn’t know enough IT to have heard of the features being advertised, most of which came in 10 years ago, or hilarious to everyone else who has long since moved on.

The dinosaur "joke" is on MS, methinks.
