Microsoft Might Be Trying Too Hard to Make Apple Look Bad With Their Latest Videos
On Friday, Microsoft uploaded some new videos that directly attack Apple’s innovation skills regarding the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. The videos include some crude humor, but it's not really anywhere near as funny as the iPhone 5S parody from Conan.
The videos show two designers that have come up with multiple ideas for two new iPhones and must show their ideas to their boss. But of course, Microsoft does their part by making the ideas sound insufficient. You can watch the videos below:

Apple probably could have done better with the iPhone 5C in terms of build quality and cases, but so far we’re pretty excited to see the impacts of the iPhone 5S' 64-bit A7 chip that Apple claims is twice as fast as the A6 chip, the usefulness of the new camera features, and the security of the Touch ID fingerprint scanner.
UPDATE: Microsoft appears to have made their parody videos private. We're unsure why, but will update the thread if they go back online to the public. It may have been a premature launch for the videos involved, or the company may have made the decision that they shouldn't publish the videos.

Looks like they pulled the video. It's not playing for me. Says it's private.

Seriously Microsoft made that video. Looks like an amateur made video. Nobody would take it seriously.

It's not like any company is coming out with anything innovative. This is turning into the computer race. It's all just becoming who can stuff the biggest camera, processor, and ram into the phones. In my opinion Samsung, Apple, and Microsoft have all flatlined on innovation.

Wow that is just awful. Not surprised they pulled it. What gets me is why they uploaded it in the first place...

I always love a bit of comedy, but this is a joke... and not in a funny way. Seriously?

That was supposed to be funny?

I don't care. Microsoft is getting pathetic. This the reason my windows 8 PC might soon become an ubuntu PC.

I think they do have a point but it still is unprofessional made

Wow, that was just terrible, and reeks of desperation. Funny how in that wedding commercial they were trying to act like they are above the fray of fighting with their competitors, but between this and their tweet right after the 5S announcement they proved that they really are no better.
Kinda like Samsung pretending that people lining up outside stores to buy the iPhone is something to be mocked, yet you know that their execs would LOVE to see people lined up like that for their phones.

No one was saying "that is terrible and pathetic" when Apple was doing commercials with the Bill Gates look alike. Remember that. Same game.
