Nothing would have saved it. It was completely stupid. This is the beginning of their "edgy" ad campaign? I know we all like to mock M$ for trying to rip off Apple (poorly) at every turn, but they really do just that. Remember the multi touch table computer? Their "Luna" interface vs. Apple's Aqua? The Zune? Windows flip? I mean...it's like they are announcing
