Microsoft’s New Internet Explorer Ad Has No Right To Be This Catchy

I’m a sucker for a catchy song even when the subject matter is a little morose. It explains why I still can’t get Dumb Ways To Die out of my head, and it will probably explain why I’ll start humming the song in this Internet Explorer ad three weeks from now. The song in the video was written and performed …

Microsoft’s Latest Internet Explorer 10 Ads Drop The Humor

In the past, Microsoft has been rather witty with its Internet Explorer 10 ads as it continued its self-deprecating “The Browser You Loved To Hate” ad campaign.

Windows 8 launched at midnight and is now making its way into the hands of early adopters everywhere. Those early adopters, if they’re using Windows RT, are also being exposed to Internet Explorer 10. They don’t have a choice as it’s the only browser available on Windows RT. Even if you’re forced into using it, Microsoft thinks you’re going to …

Online Advertisers Are Just Going To Ignore Microsoft’s ‘Do Not Track’ Signal

Microsoft became one of the good guys earlier this year when they said that Internet Explorer 10 would have the “Do Not Track” option set to on by default. In a perfect world, it would tell online advertisers that a user doesn’t want their browsing activity monitored for advertising purposes. It probably won’t work, but it’s the thought that counts. …
