New Microsoft Ad – #2

September 13, 2008

The 2nd new Microsoft ad featuring Bill Gates & Jerry Seinfeld is out now. I have to say the first one made me laugh a little even though it was bit odd….this one on the other hand was just plain weird.

If you haven’t seen it, you can watch the ad series at the Windows site:

Oh well, guess it shows there’s very short supply of marketing people that are good!


Not getting noticed is good in IT

I think this comical sign sums it up for the IT field:

If you do your job in the IT field, no one should notice any problems or drastic changes to the way they do business. Unless you are an IT shop, people just want technology to work and not have to spend time or money on it.

We’re just kicking off the first in a six phase upgrade for outdated computers. While this first phase will upgrade old Windows 2000 systems to Vista and improve the employees time use (by literally not having to wait for characters to appear onscreen several seconds after typing them) the only comment on the whole process has been about how much money the computers cost and why the $240 systems from Walmart wouldn’t work. So while the tech side gets that warm feeling that they’ve done a good job and made things better, no one seems to notice. But that’s usually a good thing in this business.

Traffic Stop

Since I never remember the good jokes I figured I would just post some here when I hear them so I can find them later. Here’s the first of the funnies:

One evening, a state trooper pulled a car over on the side of a highway. When the trooper asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver answered that he was a magician and a juggler and he was on his way to do a show that night and didn’t want to be late.

The trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling, and if the driver would do a little juggling for him, he wouldn’t give him a ticket.The driver told the trooper that he had sent all of his equipment on ahead and didn’t have anything to juggle.The trooper told him that he had some flares in the trunk of his patrol car and asked if he could juggle them.The juggler stated he could, so the trooper got three flares, lit them and handed them to the juggler.

While the man was doing his juggling act, another car pulled in behind the patrol car. A man with a little too much spirits in him, got out and watched the performance briefly. He then went over to the patrol car, opened the rear door and got in. The trooper saw him doing this and went over to the patrol car, opened the door and asked the drunk what he thought he was doing.

The drunk replied, “You might as well take me to jail, because there’s no way I can pass that test!”
