Microsoft ad poignantly reminds about the value of technologyBy Ryan Noik 4 February 2014 | Categories: news
Quite possibly the best reminder of what technology is really all about, and why it is so valuable to our world, came from Microsoft. At the recent Super Bowl, not only did the Seattle based tech giant celebrate Seattle’s own Seahawks emerge victorious over Denver’s Broncos, it released the ad below. Suffice to say, it serves as a beautiful reminder of how technology is about far more than just pursuing the latest, fastest, greatest device, but rather can have a profound and measurable impact on people’s lives.
Whatever you do that, watch to the end (it’s only a minute) to see why Microsoft scored a touchdown with this ad and why it was particularly appropriate that it aired at the Super Bowl.
That gem above was not the only ad that tugged at the heartstrings. The below, from Budweiser, incidentally has nothing to do with beer or technology, but it heartwarming and well worth a look or two or ten.
