    How about changing out Ballmer? That would be a pretty good place to start getting things back together.

    I don't know about Ballmer, it's only in recent years that Microsoft has got the ball together and starting pumping out great products, but I don't know if that's attributed to Ballmer or other people.

    On topic, this is great. Hopefully now the ads on TV will suck less. Their marketing department is utterly terrible.

    Slightly off topic, for all the talk about it, I've never, in the years Chrome has existed, ever seen one of these "Chrome commercials". But yeah, MS ads just make me roll my eyes.

    I meant on tv, as there supposedly were. But now that I've seen the Lady Gaga one, I need to go take a Phenergan pill so i don't puke, lol. Also, that was far less about Chrome than Lady Gaga and Youtube..marketing fail :D

    From what I understand, those are the TV ads, dw.
    Like in this article, Google's Great TV Ad, click the first link, where it says,
    Here's a NYTimes article on Google TV ads... it links the two I posted.

    Hmm, yeah, then I've never seen a single one on TV. And yeah, Google needs more stuff, less fluff when it comes to selling Chrome. That Gaga commercial, I seriously thought it was the wrong link until I waited until the end.
