Is it a Bing commercial or a Windows Phone 7 preemptive commercial? Interesting but this YouTube upload clearly shows a Bing commercial featuring a WP7 device using the Bing app. Is this the start of their WP7 ad campaign?


  1. Sporting the Samsung Taylor and the Rachel Zoe Project is all about what is fashion and cool. Now only if Microsoft can keep up the product placement like they were doing with the KIN.

  2. @Ruben:

    Do you know math… like, at all?

    300000000 / 7000000000 = .0428 Which is 4.28%

    And those numbers are rough estimates of the populations of the US and Earth, respectively.

  3. @norcal colby:

    Yeah, I noticed that. It’s not so much that I have a problem with *him*, just a problem with the things he says.

    Sorry Ruben. It’s nothing personal.

  4. We must remember that the KIN died DESPITE the product placement…
    I really would like to see a quality mobile OS from MS, so I hope it doesn’t die.
    I think the ad is not particularly cool. I am actually wondering if Google ever did a TV ad for its web service. To me it sounds like a little mistargeted, although I can see that MS wants to make Bing a household brand.
    If so, though, they should probably focus on the non-US customer as well. You know, the Americans only comprise .5% of the people in the world. Imagine the purchasing power.

    @norcal colby:
    I think that Max can only have a problem with what I say, since that’s all he knows about me.
    Anyway, I’d doubt that there are 7bn peeps in the world already, plus I bet there are at least 330m of US citizens and US citizenship aspirants, which kind of speaks in my favor, I would say. If you wanted to have an argument with me, you should’ve attacked the fact that .5% of the population does not equal .5% of the world’s purchasing power, which would be a valid argument (not that I wasn’t aware of that before). Pity I have to help you with that… Nothing personal ;)
    And even if my service wasn’t covering 10% of the purchasing power, I would be pretty greedy to penetrate the markets if the returns on investment were attractive at all.
    So again, I think the ad sucks, I think MS can do better and I think they should do better because their products actually don’t suck as much for the most part. OK, so much for spending my free time commenting, now I’m going to work so I can actually buy one of those badly advertised marvels.

  6. @Max: OK Max, I see. You’re right, I missed the point, literally. My apologies to you for that – if we ever meet, I owe you a coffee.

  7. @Ruben:
    No worries. I shouldn’t have been as snarky as I was. Your point is still legitimate. Even if everyone in the US saw that ad, I don’t see it making a huge impact.

  8. 复制一位网友的原话:chrome 的实现实在太渣了 – 底层处理各种不一致性,插件内脚本的行为跟网页脚本的行为有很多莫名其妙的差别,比如插件打开的外部 widonw 里面用 widonw.close() 无法正常关闭啦,background.html 里面修改 localStorage 不会触发 storage 事件等等……等到什么时候 chrome 的界面可以用 webkit 完全画出来的,我就考虑完全换到 chrome 去……你们可以看看 firefox 的 chrome://browser/content/browser.xul 就知道什么是浏览器档次上级别上的差异 -另外说一个不相关的,mozilla 的开发文档写的比 chrome 和apple 的好不知道多少倍…… 5 2
