Microsoft and their allies, Nokia, have not been shy at taking pot shots at their competitors, and in the latest Windows 8 ad, Microsoft seems to have taken Siri and turned it against Apple’s very own iPad! Basically the idea behind the ad was to show off what Windows 8 tablets can do, versus the iPad where we can hear Siri protest at how it can only do one thing at a time, a not-so-subtle jab at iOS’ inability to perform true multitasking. The video also seems to bring back some memories from 2012 when Apple first introduced the iPad mini and compared it against the regular iPad, both of which were used to play a rendition of Heart and Soul, versus the new Microsoft ad which basically has the user playing a rather simple song of Chopsticks. In any case if you’ve got a minute to spare, check it out in the video above.
