Microsoft redesigns the iPod packaging (not really) ...

This spoof apparently orginates in Redmond ...

See http://youtube.com/watch?v=EUXnJraKM3k (video)

You may have seen this one before but it still creases me up ...

That's unbelievably true. That guy is a genious, microsoft product's boxes really look like that. I never thought there was a recipie for that! ;)
That transformation is incredibly true.
This just proves how much publicity can affect us. When one sees a microsoft product box, one recognizes it immediatelly.

i wouldn't call that a spoof i'd call it an extremely professional and illuminating look at advertising and the value of simplicity.  ties in well with this post: http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=2641.0

Pretty funny, the final box is very true.

Don't get me started on iPods though, they suck (except their storage space, which fails constantly).
