Microsoft hits Apple on their own turf

November 1st, 2008

The gauntlet has been thrown down and Microsoft is making it pretty clear that they’re not going to be bullied around by Apple’s advertising tactics. In England at least. Apparently, these booths aren’t just advertisements, but they’re also interactive booths. From AppleInsider: “It’s a friggin booth where you can record your own I’m a PC …
