Microsoft Office Ads (where is Dave?)

So I got my Wired magazine in the mail yesterday and I am flipping through it and I see this ad for MS Office with a bunch of I guess lizards/dinosaurs. So what are they trying to say with this ad? You all are a bunch of reptiles and you need Office to make you able to function at work. What do these creatures have to do with computers, If they sold Office to kids I would maybe understand since some kids might think they look cute. I saw the ad for the new Apple phone on TV and what a difference between these 2 ads the Apple ad is fun, original and intriguing. The microsoft ad is boring, stupid and doesn't make any sense

JetBlue Flight 292

There was no doubt in my mind that the plane would crash when that tire blew into pieces.

Why the Battle for AOL between Microsoft and Google?

Why does Microsoft want to buy AOL?

That is the big question isn’t it?
Well here is what I heard and I think it makes sense. Right now Google gets about 25% off their searches (and possible revenue) from AOL. If Microsoft is going to buy AOL they would change the search to use MSN search instead and this would be a huge blow to Google in terms of earnings. There it is in a nutshell at least that is my opinion
