No MacBook!A few days ago I posted a story here congratulating and complimenting Microsoft on the interactive screens they installed in their brand new Entertainment and Devices division buildings. The post included a movie (worth checking out) that shows the screens and has the designer explaining everything.

I also noted, at the end of the post, that the video included a shot of someone working on a white MacBook, implying that the screens were ‘Made on a Mac’. Apparently the company that made the video didn’t appreciate that observation. They have cut the scene with the MacBook out of the movie and replaced the old movie.

If they would have let it out of the movie in the first place I wouldn’t have minded but now it looks kind of childish to do so. What do you think?
