The Christmas season is all about forgiving, living with each others differences, overlooking the bad and finding the good in each other. So in the spirt of the season Microsoft offers peace to Apple in a pretty amazing video that hit YouTube yesterday. Check it out for for yourself.
To celebrate the holidays, Microsoft employees, who were selected from across the country, gathered together, meeting each other for the first time, at the new Microsoft 5th Ave Store to spread some holiday wishes. Joined by a local NYC children’s youth choir, they share a message of peace and harmony with their neighbor down the street.
OK, so let’s admit that some of this is a PR grab from Microsoft but one can’t help but get the warm fuzzies from this. My one question is — who was watching all the Apple merchandise when the Apple employees came out of the Apple Store? No response from Apple as of yet, but maybe they’ll reach out in similar fashion. One never knows.
What do you think of Microsoft reaching out with an olive branch to Apple in the spirit of the season? Was this just a huge PR grab? Or a genuine gesture to an old competitor? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below or on Google+, Facebook and Twitter.
