When Microsoft Makes Fun of Itself, It’s Not Funny



Remember that Microsoft i-Pod parody? The one that imagined how clunky, wordy and dull the packaging for the MP3 player would be if the PC giant created it? I’m sure you assumed, like the rest of us, that the film was devised by some inflamed Apple revolutionary in an underground lair filled with other like-minded, Mac-obsessed hipsters with creative haircuts intent on overthrowing the Bill Gates empire.
