It's quite obvious if you read the entire topic. You know what happens when you assume...


This site has quote functionality, you're using it now, if you don't quote a specific post or posts in a topic then everyone assumes that you're responding to the opening post unless it only makes sense if in reply to one immediately above, especially if it's someone's first post in that topic.


There's multiple people mentioning it, I'm not going to quote all of them. And again, it's obvious who that was directed to, unless you lack common sense.

It really isn't obvious at all. You didn't have to quote everyone mentioning it, just one, or at the very least say that's what you're comparing it to, otherwise everyone will assume that the comparison is directed at the opening post.

Honestly, you don't need to get so defensive just because you weren't clear.

It's really kinda funny.

If you read the entire topic until you arrived at my post it's wouldn't be hard to deduce who it's directed at. If every post that wasn't quoting anything is automatically directed at the opening post, then this post wouldn't make any sense.

Microsoft are genius they let Sony pay them huge amounts of $ for a few meaningless ads.
This.


And yet, with everyone X-one sold, Sony makes more money due to the blu-ray drive. The cycle of business is a strange one.


you do know Microsoft owns the codec that blu-ray movies use.

And Every Sony Vaio sold is pushing Windows. Last I check, that's money in MS' pocket.

There are MANY codecs that blu rays can use. The VC 1 is but one. It is up to the individual studios which codec is used. Also, Microsoft is but one of 18 owners of the patent. Furthermore, licensing fees for use of the codec are minimal.

"Blu Ray" is also "owned" by several companies. However, Sony and Panasonic own the majority percentages IIRC, with Phillips in a distant third. The licensing fees are also much more substantial than that of the VC 1 codec.

This is a horrible misuse (in every sense) of a great song. I now hate Sony.


They are saying that all Sony users are heroin addicts.


Based on that commercial, I would say it's more than just Sony's users. I can't believe how rustled my jimmies are over this, I'm not even kidding. I guess I should consider myself lucky this is the first time a song I love is being s*** on to sell something, but it really pisses me off.


It's been used in lot's of things, the movie trainspotting, the trailer for the movie this year called "you're next" been used in lots of adverts such as an At&T advert for the 2010 Olympics, an ad for Downton Abbey. The BBC done a charity version of it a few years ago too, featuring a lot of famous singers singing on it.

These are just the ones I can remember.


I bet it would be a different story if it was MS releasing a commercial with the song...

Wrong, Blu-Ray is owned by several companies working together. Which is why MS can use it in the first place because the league of companies want the proliferation of blu ray drives in everything.

You obviously have no idea what you are talking about because you couldn't be more wrong.
