What a time to be alive...via The Seattle Times:

A few days after Microsoft released Windows 10 to the public last year, Teri Goldstein’s computer started trying to download and install the new operating system.

The update, which she says she didn’t authorize, failed. Instead, the computer she uses to run her Sausalito, Calif., travel-agency business slowed to a crawl. It would crash, she says, and be unusable for days at a time.

“I had never heard of Windows 10,” Goldstein said. “Nobody ever asked me if I wanted to update.”

When outreach to Microsoft’s customer support didn’t fix the issue, Goldstein took the software giant to court, seeking compensation for lost wages and the cost of a new computer.

Since 1977, artist Christophe Szpajdel has designed over 7,000 logos for metal bands ranging from black metal to death metal to pure depressive black funeral doom metal. His latest release of artwork takes a more lighthearted turn, reimagining the logos of famous companies with a little bit of unholy, mutilated, gutgrinding, necrotic demonrage mixed in. Fun!

Yeah. Made to advertise the release of Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 8, the ad features a character named Inori Aizawa, a "personification of Internet Explorer," fighting off killer robots (presumably with exoskeletons made of chrome. Subtle.).

The official Inori Aizawa Facebook page describes the character as:

"When I was younger, I used to be a clumsy, slow and awkward girl.

However, just like the story of ugly duckling, people told me that I have really matured and changed over the years. I feel confident in my abilities now, and I'm eager to show you what I can do.

Why don't you get to know me a little better?"

This isn't the first ad that Microsoft has been using the styles of anime: in September, they released a three-minute short of Ghost in the Shell characters using Surfaces. Chances are that they'll be making more of these types of ads in the future.

I, for one, was disappointed that the character wasn't named Inora the Explorer, but hey, you can't win 'em all, I guess...

Ha! What a dumb title! There's no way that could be true.

But I want to watch just to see how dumb it is...

Hmm, okay, that's a decent point... but it's just one decent point!

Huh, well that's... wait, really?

Seriously? This is... What? You've got to be kidding me...

In an effort to highlight zero percent interest in India for an Xbox 360, Microsoft put its foot in its mouth. The copy reads like people have no interest in Xbox.

Microsoft Fail!
