Microsoft fires an iPhone barb and guess what? This one's actually funny

Get the current on iPhone/iPad technology: Ipads Advisor

UPDATED: Microsoft has actually released a statement stating it pulled the advertisement because it was ‘broad of the mark’

It reviews: ‘The video was intended to be a light-hearted poke at our friends from Cupertino. But it was off the mark, and we have decided to pull it down.’

Original tale continues below …

Making enjoyable of Apple is approaching shooting-fish-in-a-barrel area for the business’s rivals, however in a break from the standard, Microsoft’s most current effort is in fact kind of funny. Who ‘d have thunk it?

The smart, two-minute apology video does a pretty good task of taking the mickey out of Apple’s newly-launched iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S smartphones, in a fly-on-the-wall style video.

The clip features a ‘discussion’ from artificial Apple staff, pitching the merits (or don’t have thereof) of the brand-new phones, mocking the color design, ‘unashamedly’ plastic materials and Touch ID finger print sensor.

The awesome line? ‘And you know what the appeal part is? We can charge whatever we desire, bro!’

Time to switch?

The video, which has actually been taken down by Microsoft, most likely by design, continues to exist on YouTube and ends with the hastag # timetoswitch.

It’s by no implies the first time Microsoft has assumed the position as chief Apple agitator, it’s recent Windows 8 vs iPad commercials have had their minutes too.

Will it motivate people to switch over to Windows Phone in the exact same way Samsung’s Next Big Thing commercials assisted the company change more Galaxy mobiles? Most likely not.
