BWAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAAAA

OK, screw Apple.

You’ve got to love Microsoft for this strange promo for Songsmith.

The tone is so earnest yet the content so achingly bad that it out-Onions Mac Wheel. I just hope this isn’t a fake. Who said the US didn’t understand irony?

    I dont think its real.. http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/projects/songsmith/ thats the page, but if you klick on the trademark link in the footer which takes you to the microsoft trademarks page (http://www.microsoft.com/library/toolbar/3.0/trademarks/en-us.mspx) there is no songsmith on the list..

    It’s too strange to seem true but it looks like you can buy it from their store

    But following the Mac v PC creative it would be funny if it was done to promote Apple’s Garageband (which Songsmith is being compared to in nearly every blog I’ve read).

    How weird..

    Maybe the can do a “Hi, I’m a Songbird. And I am a Garageband”…

    This is REALLY weird. The girls computer appear to be a a 15″ Apple Powerbook, but appearently the software is only for Windows.

  5. Denise Neves Santos Says:

    That’s ok, you can run windows on a mac 15″.

    On the other site I write for we’re trying to convince someone to sing popular but dark songs into Songsmith and see what Songsmith comes up with.

    I really want to hear anything by Cradle Of Filth, Nick Cave or Aphex Twin.

    Microsoft huh, so it’s pretty easy to use then…
