mr/ms UK: "i thought u guys had invented 'tongue in cheek." those ads, IMHO, r saying "u suggested, wii listened & u got what u wanted."
back in the GOD when i was a "typist," i always had ideas 2 make things easier & better but had no place 2 submit them. Thanks 2 20th century technology, we have so many forums, we dont no where 2 go first.
I live in the UK, so I cannot vouch for US Advertising but isn't saying "windows 7 was my Idea" in their adverts both a contradiction in terms and in licensing. If Windows 7 was someone elses idea haven't MS shot themselves in the court when it comes to the next antitrust trial. If it was the users ideas aren't MS 'PIRATES' under EULA law. They don't have the right to publish and license other peoples ideas but their own. Otherwise their advertising comes under a different law and that mainly begins under the label "Bull****".
Like most advertising it is misleading and if Windows 7 was my idea, why should I pay for it?
