Notes from the field
by Robert X. Cringely®

Even the ads have bugs

In the new commercials for MSN 8, a guy dressed in a Microsoft Butterfly costume drops out of a "cocoon." I guess nobody at Microsoft, their ad agency, or any company involved in the production of the commercial knows that a butterfly doesn't emerge from a cocoon, but a chrysalis -- moths come from cocoons. But then, as the spy who picked up on this said, "this should not be all that surprising since Microsoft seems to have problems recognizing bugs when they see them."
