Microsoft anti-Mac work was made on Mac


Just as Microsoft and Crispin Porter + Bogusky tried to play
down the
wreck of the HMS Conquistador
by quickly launching their new “I’m a PC” spots, another
PR snafu has swept the blogosphere. Looking at data embedded in Microsoft’s
online photos from the campaign, a savvy Flickr user found that the images were
created using Adobe software on
a Macintosh
(versus, say, Microsoft Expression Studio on a PC). The incriminating data
was removed the next day, but the damage was done. Maybe there’s a new adage to
be learned here: You can take the Mac out of the ad, but you can’t take the ad
out of the Mac. Via Blake
