Now That’s Drinking the Kool-Aid

Q&A: Microsoft’s Windows marketing chief says Apple’s ‘scared’ | Business Center | Macworld:

“I think [the way] they’re responding to our advertising is a reflection of what’s happening out in the market (both IDC and the NPD Group show Mac sales dropping in the U.S. in recent months).
They’re scared. The Ad Age survey shows how our brand is coming alive through three things: the ads, hitting our commitment to build a fantastic product with Windows 7, and around delivering the truth about the ‘Apple tax’ and the value you get when you go with Windows.”

It’s hard not to laugh at such delusions. Apple isn’t sleeping on Microsoft, but scared? Jokes. I love the misdirection on the sales figures. Every manufacturer saw their sales slump, except Apple saw it’s sales slump the least. Notice no mention in the interview of the Zune or Windows Mobile versus the iPod and iPhone respectively. Methinks somebody is projecting some fear.
