What happened right now? Microsoft and Apple have a feud that dates back to the mid-1980s and continues to this day. Microsoft also released a new ad calling the Surface Pro 7 superior to the iPad, continuing the practise of tossing shade at each other in their advertisements.
Microsoft’s commercial starts by stressing the benefits of the Surface Pro 7’s built-in kickstand. The iPad lacks one, so you can simply purchase a third-party cover with a similar feature, or you can buy one of Apple’s iPad keyboards, which is the next feature under review.
The commercial praises the Surface Pro Style Cover keyboard and how it “clicks and sticks” to the computer, ignoring the fact that the iPad edition does the same thing. The weight difference between the two accessories is highlighted—Folio Apple’s is 0.2 pounds heavier than the Surface Pro 7’s keyboard. It overlooks the fact that Microsoft’s tablet weighs 0.33 pounds more than Apple’s.
According to a recent Nature.com survey, up to 75% of Bitcoin mining takes place in China, which would have stung the ears of Shark Tank and Dragon’s Den investor Kevin O’Leary, who recently branded all Bitcoin mined through the use of fossil fuels as “blood coin.”
The trader went so far as to claim that from now on, the only Bitcoin he would buy and sell would be “clean coin,” or Bitcoin sourced from miners who use green or renewable resources.
The iPad Pro 11-inch (2020) is the best overall tablet in our soon-to-be-updated Best Tablets feature, thanks to its excellent screen, iPadOS, and battery life, but we also like its rival; the use of Windows makes the Surface Pro 7 win our Best Productivity tablet category.
Intel stepped up its fight against Apple and its M1-powered Macs last month, bringing back actor Justin Long—the “I’m a Mac” guy from Apple’s “Get a Mac” advertisements—to parody Cupertino’s computers in a series of commercials.
