Microsoft makes fun of Apple same as Apple used to do with their MAC / PC guys!
But it's a lot different than Google, Motorola, Samsung and a few others simply copying Apple and then bash Apple!
Google ads are well known for being classy, tasteful, playful. I challenge you to find a single Google commercial that bashes Apple. Really, I'd be interested if you can dig up an actual TV, radio, or print ad that does this (Google I/O keynote isn't a commercial) Apple is the company that directly attacks others ("I'm a Mac, you're a PC", "1984")
In contrast, Microsoft runs campaigns like "Scroogled" and attacks on cheesy Google Docs.
I find it amazing that when the iPhone is rated #1 camera, ya'll are lording it over everyone, but when they get beat, all of a sudden, no one cares about buying phones for camera quality. Wahmbulance, call it.
