Submission + - I'm a PC Adds Feature Happy Mac Backdrop. (realtechnews.com)

twitter writes: "Flamebait in MeatSpace Dept.

Microsoft's marketing geniuses have set up an "I'm a PC" Kiosk directly in front of an Apple store.

"It's a friggin booth where you can record your own I'm a PC video," he said. "This is outside the Apple Store, Bullring, Birmingham, England." He added that a trio of Microsoft staffers will be on hand to turn patrons off from the Mac for the next three days.

I don't know what's more pathetic, that the average PC user has to drive someplace to make, edit and upload a video or that all of the videos produced will feature a background of happy Mac users. Oh yeah, you are a PC. Some people in the local Apple store thought my brief visit was obnoxious I was polite and filled with hardware praise. Leave it to M$ to teach them what harassment really is. How many switchers they will hire this time?"


Google Adopts, Forks OpenID 1.0 316

An anonymous reader writes "Right on the heels of Microsoft's adoption of the OpenID protocol by announcing their intention to enable OpenID authentication against all Live IDs, Google has announced their intention to join the growing list of OpenID authentication providers. Except it turns out they're using their own version of OpenID that is incompatible with everyone else. It seems that Google will be using their own 'improved' version of OpenID (based upon research and user feedback of the OpenID system) which isn't backwards compatible with OpenID 1.0/2.0, in hopes of improving end-user experience at the cost of protocol compatibility and complexity."
