Microsoft Markets the iPod

No comment is really necessary here, other than that the Danny Elfman music is a nice touch.

This arrived in my inbox a day after another take on Microsoft appeared over at Daring Fireball, in which John Gruber dissects the following inane, meaningless ad copy:

In a people-ready business, people make it happen. People, ready with software. When you give your people tools that connect, inform, and empower them, they’re ready. Ready to collaborate with partners, suppliers, and customers. Ready to streamline the supply chain, beat impossible deadlines, and develop ideas that can sway the course of industry. Ready to build a successful business: a people-ready business. Microsoft. Software for the people-ready business.
