Its of no surprise to me (certainly of the represented average) that so few seem to grasp the concept of this ad.

Its just a continuation on MS piss poor messaging thus far, I suppose.

Advice to MS: Do you ever read the the internet, Microsoft? Observe the way they think and act? You have to speak to them as if they were 5 year old children


It's not that people on the internet don't understand it. It's that it can easily be twisted into a negative, which is what we saw here. As well as the fact that "beta tested in the future" means nothing to the average consumer.

photoshoped?

if not someone is sabotaging inside Microsoft, someone with power. I've been suspecting this for months.


It's not photoshopped, I saw one when I was out yesterday


its photoshop...sorry but beta tested in the future...whats the point with that...

and if you saw it...post your picture...


Clearly it's photoshopped. It's not like two more adds were posted in this topic or anything.

It's a completely legitimate ad, demonstrating once again how terrible their marketing team is.

I don't even know what this is supposed to say!

Even if you don't know what beta testing is this is confusing.

''beta tested in the future.''

There's no way I can pay you back, but my plan is to show you that i understand.
You are appreciated.

for what they were trying to say they should have changed ''in'' to ''for.'' But even that leads to the implication that it hasn't been beta tested for the present

But people do know what it means.

It's extremely illogical to think they were trying to say something negative about themselves with an advertisement.
