The latest Microsoft video is a bit clearer than the first one, as it is apparently aiming to “get back in touch with real people.”

Truth be known, this one is actually pretty funny.  Not compelling me to do anything with my computing dollars based on the message expressed, but funny. I think it demonstrates that Bill Gates has a sense of humor and perhaps to a larger degree, so does Microsoft. I mean it was at Gnomedex 5.0 where IE 7 was released and its presenter showed the Microsoft Campus as the infamous Death Star – I appreciated this, it made me feel at ease with the presentation.

So what do you think – is Microsoft onto something here? Should it keep working to focus its message down to something you and I actually care about? Or instead, keep going with the video series as it has been?
