Very clever advertising...

Postby heiowge » Sat Nov 17, 2012 6:45 pm

The back of this month's mag (Christmas 2012) has some very clever advertising.

A picture of 3 apple devices. Lots of logos on the screen for Word and Adobe. Support for ithis and ithat.

Oh and a single Linux sticker. Just in case you felt left out.

I don't know about you, but if I was looking for their services, I'd not bother going with their company if I was looking for Linux support. I'd feel like an afterthought... :roll:

At least (according to Netcraft) their web server is on Linux. I would aways check that an ISP or cloud provider was on Linux before I bought into them, for all sorts of reasons.

So is that big "W" is the icon for Word is it, perhaps in Windows 8? I wouldn't know. And you know those are Apple devices?
