I doubt it, Microsoft got rid of its kids page long ago... I think their new campaign is to make applications that people will use because it makes their life easier such as this one.

Oh, and can anyone verify whether the laptop in the video is a MacBook Pro with flowers all over or not?

Good spot, it does look like one - you can just see what looks like the top of the leaf of the Apple logo on the lid near the start, also compare this shot of it with the side of an Aluminium MacBook Pro (plus you can clearly see the single mouse button on the trackpad here):

All the ports are the same and not many laptops have two FireWire ports, not sure what the removable cover on the video is that isn't in the picture, maybe they changed the design of them slightly at some point.

His daughter has a $2,000 laptop? That's impressive.

So we pretty much disected the commercial.

I actually think someone cauliflowered (or boxed) the guys ear.

If you guys know boxing you will know the term.

So far the girl possibly has a 2000$ Macbook, the coffee cups say Microsoft on them

Is there anything else about the commercial ?

This software makes Microsoft Bob look practical. The biggest failure from Microsoft since Windows ME.

I've seen it on research. Looked great to me. I don't have tried it yet. Most because I can't sing :oops:. They have to make something to make that better :P

Microsoft has more of these stuff doesn't it? (with that MAC in windows commercials)
