Microsoft responds to Apple’s "Laptop Hunter" whining

July 24th, 2009 | Tags:

An updated version of Microsoft Laptop Hunters advert entitled “Lauren & Sue” has been made and the original silently replaced. It is believed that this follows complaints made by Apple’s lawyers.

Taken from Advertising Age:

Just last week Microsoft Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner was ecstatic about a phone call from Apple lawyers, who demanded that Microsoft stop showing the ads because it had lowered its prices. Mr. Turner went on to say the call from Apple’s legal department was the “greatest single phone call” he’s ever taken and that Microsoft plans to “keep running them and running them and running them.”
