Microsoft Pulls Anti-Apple Ads

No one likes a bully. On Friday, just a few hours after posting, Microsoft pulled a series of online video advertisements mocking Apple's recently unveiled iPhone offerings. The videos showed an interpretation of "meetings" taking place at Apple's headquarters, including a person resembling the late Steve Jobs, but were shortly criticized and mocked on social media. The video was "intended to be a lighthearted poke at our friends from Cupertino. But it was off the mark, and we've decided to pull it down," a Microsoft representative told CNET.
