Scroogled? Microsoft Attack Ad Coins New Diction

Steve Ballmer and Microsoft are on a roll these days. It appears they are puffing their chest out a little at Google. Microsoft has created a political campaign style attack ad targeted at Google Shopping. Microsoft is say Google is Scroogling you because shopping results are ranked based on payments from advertisers. The funny part about these videos is they are on the Google owned YouTube.

First Video of the Microsoft Surface in Action

What do you think of the Microsoft Surface after watching this video? I for one am a huge believer in what the Surface is promissing.

Price of the Surface:

– 32 GB model will start at $499

– 32 GB with Black Touch Cover $599

–  64 GB with Black Touch Cover $699

Thoughts:

The pricing is right in line with the Apple iPad. Some people say that the Microsoft Surface is too expensive, but I feel to build hype price = scarcity. Scarcity like in the fashion world makes the product more unique and special. I just finished an article about J. Crew CEO and former Gap chief Mickey Drexler speaking at a Makers of American Fashion event stating that the world has become ‘Homogenized.’

Drexler goes on to say that, “The same goods and the same brands are all over the place — nothing’s all that special anymore.”

“Today, there’s no aspiration because every high school kid has it.”

Unlike the Amazing Kindle Fire $199 or the rumored $99 Android Tablet there is something about a sought after item with a high price tag that carries mystique. Mostly because only a few can afford it and those that can are envied.
