Is Steve Jobs Just a Giant Sissy?
Sounds like it to me:
Apple Inc. legal representatives asked Microsoft Corp. recently to "stop running" advertisements suggesting Apple's computers are expensive, Microsoft Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner said...
Mr. Turner said the call from Apple took place two weeks ago, and the attorneys asked that the company no longer run the ads because the company had "lowered our prices."
It's OK for Apple to run years worth of it's "I'm a PC, I'm a Mac" schtick, often promoting completely false information about windows (such as that UAC is a big deal... you see it only when you install software...) but if someone points out something everyone already knows: that Macs tend to be pricey...
That's unfair and warrants a whiny call from Apple's lawyers with a pathetic "please stop"?
Maybe the MSFT guys are just making this up?
