I guess Microsoft loves the Powerbook enough to use it in their advertising. Sure, there’s Office for Mac OS X, but using a Powerbook to promote Microsoft security doesn’t exactly give me the warm fuzzies. I guess Microsoft just really wants to be like Apple.
I’m sure they had a good reason for the faux pas. A lazy art directory who grabbed the first cool photo they could find from a stock photo house, perhaps? Who knows. It is amusing, although not as funny as the Gateway 2000 ad that featured the Powerbook!
