Microsoft is no stranger to tossing in an Apple product to try to show how its own products shine. And, to show off a new (it’s actually old) accessory, it has done it again.
Microsoft is back with another new advert comparing the Surface Pro 3 to the MacBook Air. It was only earlier this month that Microsoft had released an ad comparing Lenovo’s Yoga Pro 3 to the MacBook Air.
Earlier this week, Microsoft rolled out a major update for its Office apps for the iPhone and iPad and made them completely free to use. If you were bummed out about the apps going free to use after you purchased an Office 365 subscription, worry not as Microsoft is giving pro-rated refunds.
Microsoft has been trying to push its Surface Pro line-up of tablet very hard recently. In September, Microsoft announced an exclusive $400 million deal with NFL to promote the Xbox One and its Surface tablets. However, its marketing push backfired when the announcers could not recall the tablet’s name and described it as “iPad-like tools.”
