Windows 8 Prank

on November 9, 2012 by Mark Comments

One of the coolest things about Windows 8 are the Live Tiles. Microsoft thinks so too so they created a prank that involved a light up floor tile (think Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean) and a collapsing wall. Probably set-up but fun anyway by McCann Oslo and via Gizmodo

on March 20, 2012 by Mark Comments

I’m not sure this is entirely possible given the hate some people throw at the IE browser. In any case Microsoft have produced this graphical campaign to entice you back to ‘cool’. I dunno…!!! What do you think? Read more…

Office for Mac: Simplify your work

on January 30, 2008 by Martina Comments

I’m surprised Microsoft has worked on a new version of Office for Mac, and I’m even more surprised by the nice site they’ve launched to promote the new software. “Simplify your work” explains the product characteristics with lovely animations and a touch of sweetness I wouldn’t have expected from Microsoft.

The agencies behind the site are McCann SF & Firstborn.

Microsoft Live Derby 2007

on August 16, 2007 by Martina Comments

Microsoft has just launched an advergame to promote its Live Search Maps. Created by EVB, Microsoft Live Derby 2007 it’s a sort of revisited “driving” version of PacMan. You can select to run in five different cities and decide among four crazy drivers (I picked the Golden Oldies…) who will take you around the map collecting “pills”, avoiding other cars and reaching a series of key destinations. The game is fun to play, and it’s less easy as it might appear at first sight. I tried three times and I didn’t manage to pass the first level… but maybe this is because I’m not a very good virtual driver I’ll try again!
