Competitive Media Placement
Apple and Microsoft ("PC") have been at each others' throats for a while. Whenever I hear about their tiffs, though, it's usually through trade pubs
, and never through first-hand experience.
This morning, though, after browsing PCMag, I came across this homepage takeover
, and realized the extent to which this war raged on.
Kind of ironic for PCMag to accept this buy. I've heard of different sites accepting ads from supposedly credible sources that turned out to be malware
, but I'm pretty sure this was done on purpose.
Is losing credibility and selling out worth it?
