Microsoft's Laptop Hunter range of advertisements are quite popular; their goal is to show consumers how much money can be saved if you choose to purchase a computer packing the Windows operating system over an Apple branded one. Recently though, Apple made some price drops, and it seems it wasn't just to please consumers... they wanted those advertisements gone. Whilst that hasn't exactly been achieved, Electronista is reporting that they may have gotten the next best thing.
After making said price drops, it was reported that Apple's PR contacted Microsoft's COO Kevin Turner directly and told him that the advertisements need to be removed. This apparently made him quite pleased, as it showed they were working, though nobody said whether or not the request would be fulfilled; as you can see, it hasn't.
