Every once in a while you come across a story that you just make you smile, it only takes a second, check out the side by side of Apple’s website and Microsoft’s new site below.
Tobias over at MobileGeeks.de surfs both sites regularly so when the Microsoft Surface tablet updated their site he immediately saw the similarities. Thankfully they haven’t used the same girl and their hair is parted on the other side, but you have to admit the way that they’ve been styled they look extremely similar.
Both are wearing a solid colored shirt and a dog tag style name tag with similar length hair and of course they are both Asian. Had they picked a women of a different ethnicity and styled them the same, the story wouldn’t be as funny, but we’d be able to draw similar comparison.
There are differences and there isn’t anything wrong with what Microsoft has done, both companies likely got the same marketing study that Asian women offering help tested best. But still I can’t help but smile at the photo.
