New Windows 8 ad takes a dig at iPad using Siri
| by Shunal Doke |
Microsoft has released a new ad for its operating system – Windows 8 – and this new one goes directly for Apple’s throat. The ad shows an Asus VivoTab doing some things that an iPad supposedly can’t do, and this is reiterated by Siri herself. “I can only do one thing at a time,” says Siri as the VivoTab uses Windows 8’s multitasking capabilities to watch a video and check email at the same time. “I guess PowerPoint isn’t one of those things,” she continues as the Windows 8 tablet views a PowerPoint Presentation. Check out the ad:
The ad is very reminiscent of Microsoft and Apple’s older ad campaigns where they would fight one another through the “I’m a PC” and “Get a Mac” ads. This ad conveniently fails to mention any of the iPad’s strengths. To compare the two tablets, the ad shows a 64GB iPad costing $699 (roughly Rs 39,025) and a 64GB Asus VivoTab Smart costing $449 (roughly Rs 24,964).
The new ad uses Siri's voice to insult the iPad
