Rant or Rave

Clever Microsoft
Just a small rant at Microsoft's inspired marketing, one heard many times before, I know.

Catching them early by offering a vastly reduced subscription (£10 per year) for students to have Office 365 Professional Plus, and of course we're subscribing, if only to stop the nagging that OpenOffice does not do what they want (it probably does but just not in the way expected).

I suppose that Microsoft's challenge is to stop as many people as they can from choosing Apple. Once you're committed it's a huge pain to migrate. I've often thought that I should move to Apple but it never seems a good time to go through the pain.

I've just gone back to Apple. Most of my apps are cloud-based so the pain was minimal. Office365 transferred simply to Apple versions (which are better).

Brilliant social media at work?
Spotted this being shared on Twitter and think it's brilliant. Surely a positive thing for the brands involved, too? What do you think?

Depending on their objectives, of course.

Of course, Jackie - I was not suggesting such activity for all, just as an example of getting it right.

I just found it a bit odd that everybody got so overexcited about the fact that social media managers are real people behind the brands, and that they had a pretend chat with each other like real people do.
