Microsoft Goes on the Offensive Against iPad in Videos

Microsoft's hoping to show users that they can do a lot more with a tablet running Windows 8 than they can with a competing product. Considering the iPad was the device that really launched the tablet form factor (this is despite not being the first tablet to market), Microsoft figures the iPad is the one to beat. As such, it's got a series of commercials that show the iPad failing while [insert tablet running Windows 8] triumphs. Check 'em out below.

    Rofl, I'm an iPad owner and even I laughed at Apple after watching these commercials.

    Why these ads were not shown when the Win8 tablet was first released is beyond me. Oh well, better late than never.

    They should have showed someone plugging an iPhone into the Win8 tablet to sync, with the iPad next to it getting punched or something.

    I wouldn't buy either, but i must say well done microsoft.

    I just have to say tho....TWO whole things? LIKE OMG, where back in the 90s instead of the 80s! Sure two apps at once is WAY better then just one, but its still a joke in this day and age.
