Microsoft has a Huge Set to Air the Latest Surface RT Ad

I get that Microsoft has to advertise their products. I also get that the iPad is the 800 LB gorilla. They would be crazy not to take a cheap shot at it. But this is outrageous, even as an act of desperation. They are actually pushing this hard for a product that just cost the company a $900m write-down. They have also had to severely slash the price to clear out remaining inventory. Yet they are promoting this against the iPad as if the Surface RT should be taken seriously. Two months ago, this ad might not have been so bad. Today, it is comedy gold.
