something's funny about this news story

Postby TerraFrost » Fri May 11, 2007 4:26 pm ... rld/131722

The story is talking about how people are having problems getting a Windows Vista upgrade. The video ad ends by saying "No upgrade nightmares. See all the reasons why you'll love a Mac."

Also, the story was published on May 10th yet the article says "it's been five months since Vista went on sale January 30." Five months after January 30th is June 30th - not May 10th.

Of course, news sources getting it wrong isn't exactly rare. Some of the more notable examples in recent memory include the Killian documents and most stories by Jayson Blair.

... vista doesn't upgrade... It just installs and saves all the old files in a different directory (windows.old)
