Dear Microsoft: this is NOT how to sell Cortana

From time to time, Microsoft is able to come up with video ads that don't manage to embarrass itself while waging its marketing war against Apple. Remember the Cortana versus Siri ad about speakers? Now that one was done in good taste and has a pretty amusing punchline.

Gmail out in China: How much do you rely on one company?

This week Gmail is out in China. Most Google services have been disrupted in China since June.

Even a disruption of an hour in the USA results in a news blast and a Twitter explosion - imagine if not only Gmail was out, but all Google services at once.
