Microsoft ads not quite as diverse in Poland


Don't really want that black guy in the overseas version of your ad? Just Photoshop him out! Compare the English-language version of the company's business productivity infrastructure site with the Polish-language version. The Asian guy miraculously survived, but only a small portion of the black guy remains. They forgot to Photoshop out his hand. Via Engadget. UPDATE: In a Twitter post, Microsoft has apologized for its "mistake" and says it's going to take the photo off the Polish site. UPDATE 2: The same photo, with the black guy, now appears on both sites.
