Microsoft Ad Spoofs Google Chrome Now Everywhere Ad

It’s hard to argue that Chrome isn’t getting a prominent rise on both desktop and mobile. To that ends, Google launched a TV ad addressing the ubiquitous state of their browser, dubbed Now Everywhere, the ad highlights that “one browser for your laptop, phone and tablet. When you use Chrome across all of your devices, your web gets better, everywhere.” However, after the new ad came out, Microsoft manged to spoof that emphasizing Google’s main revenue source: Ads and related privacy concerns. The ad is said to be internal but leaked eventually.

Watch the original Google Ad below, followed by the Microsoft spoof. What do you think?

Microsoft Unveils a New Logo Since 1987

After 25 years, Microsoft has unveiled a new look and feel to its corporate logo. The new logo, which incorporates a multicolored Windows symbol in addition to the “Microsoft” name in straightforward, lighter type, is intended to “signal the heritage but also signal the future — a newness and freshness,” said Jeff Hansen, Microsoft’s general manager of brand strategy.

The new logo features the name “Microsoft” in the Segoe font — a font Microsoft owns and has used in its products and marketing for several years. The font also figures prominently in the new Windows 8 user interface.

Its not surprising that Microsoft got inspired by Apple in this time around, the new logo font Segoe is a clone of Apple’s Myriad Pro font which is used in Apple’s various products as the one typeface.
