    I was flipping through this week's Newsweek when I stumbled on a Microsoft .NET fold-out ad in the middle of the magazine. If you look at it closely the guy on the right is sitting at a desk with an Apple keyboard.

    I just thought it was kinda funny.

    I've seen countless adds for M$-only software or sevices in which the machine shown was a Mac.:p

    M$ seem to do this quite often, they are idiots for this kind of thing.

    I can remember an advert when they had what they called a state of the art PC in the picture closer inspection and it turned out to be a Quadra 800.

    I once saw an ad for Dell in the sunday newspaper. It was a full page deal with a giant picture of a dell tower with a flat panel screen next to it. Only thing was that the screen was showing OS X w/ IE at Dell's website.

    Re: Apple Keyboard in Microsoft Ad!

    Some one post the ad, I don't have a copy handy.

    This just adds more to the silliness surrounding the .NET fiasco, first the server issue, now a Mac reference. How is it possible that MS keeps messing this up?
