Microsoft COO Abruptly Ceases Cartwheeling

Video: Laptop Hunters $1700 – Lauren and Sue get a Dell XPS 13

Just over a week after Microsoft COO Kevin Turner regaled attendees of the company’s Worldwide Partner Conference with an anecdote about the “single greatest phone call” from Apple’s legal team, the Redmond, WA giant has yanked the original version of a recent “Laptop Hunter” ad.

Dubbed “Lauren and Sue,” the new version (above) no longer claims that Macs are twice the price of PCs like the Dell they end up buying. My my, how quickly a cartwheel can turn into a crawl.
