Microsoft Hits at iPad & Siri with New Surface Ad

Microsoft Hits at iPad & Siri with New Surface Ad(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Microsoft’s Surface tablet has been in the news a lot lately following the company’s price cut on RT versions.

Now the company is trying to make headway in the tablet market, on Friday releasing a new video showing the device doing battle with the iPad.

“I’m sorry, I don’t have a USB port,” says the iPad with Siri voice as a hand is shown plugging in a USB storage device into Surface. The Microsoft video also emphasizes Surface’s kickstand, keyboard and $349 price tag for the 32GB version.

And while Microsoft in the video clearly gives itself an unfair advantage, it is entertaining nonetheless. It kind of makes us yearn for the “Hi, I’m a Mac” ads from back in the day. Watch the video below:
