Microsoft made a terrible parody of 'Sexy and I Know It' to promote Surface Pro 3 and OneNote

Despite being a major institution of the tech industry, Microsoft has always been willing to be fairly lighthearted and get a little goofy. That's for better or for worse, depending on how you take it. Microsoft has a long history of making silly videos that often fall on the more embarrassing side of goofy, and little to its concern. Microsoft may well know this, but its videos don't necessarily present the perfect image for the company or its products.

Xbox One sales doubled in June, but PS4 takes the top spot

The PlayStation 4 remained the best-selling console in the United States last month, according to NPD figures cited by Sony, despite Microsoft's attempts to drive sales of its Xbox One console by introducing a cheaper model. Microsoft was able to double its sales of its Xbox One console in June with the release of a $399 model that didn't include motion-sensing camera Kinect, but it apparently still wasn't enough to knock Sony off the top...
