When did TV ads get to be 1 minute long? That seems way too long.

They usually start with a long version and then edit it down to different spot lengths...

It's an amusing ad though. I like it. lol

It wasn't funny when Apple made fun of their competition, and it's not funny when Microsoft do it, either.

What it IS, is juvenile.

Let each product compete on its merits alone, and leave the childish attacks on the competition to the idiot fans.

Am I the only one who thinks the bearded iPhone user asking the Note user to get out of the way strongly resembles Joshua Topolsky of The Verge fame btw?

Awesome. I'm a Note 2 user myself and love it - but the Lumia 920 is a great phone too. Actually, so is the iPhone :)

Was it funny when Samsung did it?

I'm going to echo the guy above, you must be pretty dull.

It's not funny when ANY company has to resort to childish cheap shots. It DOES however, do a pretty good job of showing that their own product clearly can't compete so has to resort to such pathetic tactics.

As for your personal opinion of me, keep it to yourself.

Does Microsoft have a voice assist program like Siri? While funny, just seems they are picking on the features they do not have. In any case, will soon be forgotten like the Samsung commercials towards the iPhone

Yes and they have since Mango. With WP8, apps can tie into it, and with the apps I have installed it beats the crap out of Siri.

I liked when it panned back to the two guys NFC pairing "weee", teh funnies. :laugh:

Its not truly 'natural' language like Siri but it does the job, Bing clearly. Unlike Apple, MS has a search engine.

I'd say except Siri, WP has all other features in that ad. :/ but I think "features" was not the focus of the ad.

Siri is not truly natural language either :/ say anything outside of its set of commands and it spits out a search result.
