OK, no more of The Bill and Jerry Show.
The latest Microsoft commercial campaign is entitled "I’m a PC". Although Bill Gates does appear briefly, Jerry Seinfeld is not. <insert sigh_of_relief here>
The commercial is a mix of celebrity and real people and FINALLY a direct response to the Mac vs. PC ads.
And best of all, I know what the commercial is advertising. (as opposed to four and a half minutes of Seinfeld’s "nothing" which was entertaining, but not advertising)
In this episode, Bill and Jerry decide to live with a "real" family. And this "commercial" makes we want to buy Vista, how?
It’s comical and geeky. Enjoy!
OK. Usually I am immune to viral videos, but the Jerry Seinfeld – Bill Gates commercial for Vista is so Geeky that I have not been able to stop watching it, yet. I have even seen it one time on television.
Go check it out (if you haven’t already!)
Sorry for the gap in posts. The gap got bigger when I took my vacation.
First of all, thank you to all who have purchased CBT Nuggets videos through my web site link. I appreciate your sales very much. I will try to demonstrate my appreciation in the future with regular and useful blog posts.
I have just received access to the CBT Nuggets videos for Windows Vista, tests 70-620 and 70-622. Both videos are taught by one of my favorite CBT Nuggets instructors, James Conrad. I will post a review of these videos hopefully within the next month.
I am also working on two software deployments: Microsoft Forefront Client Security and Microsoft Virtual Machine Manager Workgroup Edition. I am sure I will have some comments to share with you during and after these deployments.
On a personal note, I am starting my Master’s Degrees in Management Information Systems this fall at the University of Central Florida (where I am also employed). I am excited and fearful about this all at the same time. I have wanted to go back for a Master’s Degree for a long time. This degree will also give me academic credentials in the field that I have been working in for so long (my bachelor’s degree is in Industrial Engineering).
My mention of an academic degree may cause some readers to wonder which is more helpful to your career – degree or certification. My suggestion is that if you have the time and resources, go for the degree. My bachelor’s degree that I earned in 1991 still helps me find work 17 years later. I cannot say the same for my certification in Windows 3.1/MS DOS 6.x that I earned in 1995! However, my certifications do show an employer that I am continuing to learn and remaining current in my field (as opposed to just 1991 knowledge).
