Are Apple & Cnet In Cahoots?

Thu Nov 22, 2007 12:05 am

So I was kicking around on CNET, and ended up at their Vista page. This is either CNET being cahoots with Apple, or just good marketing by Apple, but I laughed incredibly hard at the ad that plays on the left and top of the page. Click on the option on the left that says 'play with sound'...

Marketing, of course - any publication is in cahoots with their paying ad customers. And this particular one is not just on the Vista page. It's just the most ironic there.
