Yesterday Microsoft launched a new series of ads in their ongoing Windows Brand Campaign; Laptop Hunters. In this first ad and supposedly in the follow ups they are following real people on their quest to find a new laptop.

I thought this first video was just great. It certainly hints at the so-called Apple Tax or Premium, and shows how much more choice there is in the Windows world. To be clear; I think that Apple makes great hardware products, but at the same time find them too expensive and limiting (think upgrades). Anyway; Here is the first ad. What do you think?

My Troubles With Live Mesh

Live Mesh touts a simple, yet brilliant idea; being able to access my files and folders from anywhere. Whether it is done with syncing the contents between 2 or more computers utilizing peer-to-peer (P2P) technology or via the Live Desktop.

I decided that I should try to sync my music-collection between my laptop and desktop. Given the 5 GB limitation on what goes to the Live Desktop, I had to choose the P2P solution for my approx 120 GB music collection.

Brandon LeBlanc has written a post on the Windows 7 Team Blog where he goes into the different SKUs of Windows 7.

Bloggers and pundits have been all over Microsoft for not making things easier for the consumers by having too many SKUs. I totally disagree and think that things are actually much easier this time around. Yes, there are 6 different SKUs mentioned;

  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Windows 7 Professional
  • Windows 7 Starter (OEM only)

Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce
a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
