    I’m not a huge fan of Bill Gates or his products (or his tricks for that matter), but I can’t say I’m any more of a Steve Jobs fan either. They’re peas in the same pod, if you ask me. They both manipulate the market any way they can to be the top dog, no matter that they’re both stinking rich and really don’t need the money. It’s pride, and you know what they say about that, right? Well, do you?

Irony at its finest: Get $105 off an iPhone via Microsoft

BING!

Microsoft can do it all, from crushing Sony in a console battle, waging a successful ad campaign against Mac computers, and even generating some interest in its attempt at redemption with Windows 7 after Vista flopped tremendously and sank CompUSA with it. Microsoft’s new attempt at owning the world through stealing Google’s share of the wealth has brought back a thing that was thought to be dead.

Welcome the Microsoft’s Cash Back Incentives.

Ironically, through this program, Microsoft will pay you 35 percent to buy an iPhone by using the AT&T premier shop through Bing.

Taken from Modmyi.com:

As per this new incentive program, buyers get a 35 percent cash back guarantee if they buy from AT&T using Bing, though you have to go through some additional steps to save the bucks.

Quote: HOW TO GET PREMIER + CashBack (New Contracts Only):
Visit the AT&T Wireless Web site and validate your e-mail address with Premier.
Check your e-mail and click the link to your AT&T Premier Store.
Open a new tab with the same browser that your AT&T Premier Store is open in.
Go to Bing.com in the new tab and search “att wireless.”
Click the 35 percent CashBack Sponsored Link.
Sign into your CashBack account and get redirected to the main AT&T Wireless page.
In the top right, enter the term “Premier” into the search bar.
Click the first link that reads “at&t premier login.”
You will get directed to the same Premier store you have open in the original tab.
Congratulations, you are in the Premier store under the CashBack AT&T Site

So, buying from the Premier Store gets you an iPhone plus a rebate (takes a few weeks to get it back), courtesy of Microsoft.

When Apple has a product that Microsoft simply can’t compete with, Microsoft is smart enough to take advantage of the situation and spin it toward bringing interest in Bing, simultaneously stabbing into Google’s support base.

Microsoft is simply doing what it does best: taking other people’s ideas, making them better, throwing in some spice, and riding on the back of that other idea and deploying a diabolical plan so intricate and wise, Bill Gates can giggle a maniacal laugh all the way to the bank.
