New MSFT Ad: Filling An iPod Costs $30K, ZunePass Costs $14.95

Posted May 13, 2009

The advertising war between Microsoft and Apple is back on. Earlier today I wrote about the new Apple advertisement that parodies Microsoft’s Laptop Hunters. Recently Microsoft released an advertisement that focuses on the costs associated with buying music on iTunes versus the Zune Pass.

In the above ad, Microsoft uses famous financial planner Wes Moss to talk about the difference between filling an iPod versus filling the Zune. Interestingly Zune Marketplace is not mentioned in the commercial. The problem with the Zune Pass is that you can only keep 10 songs per month so if you wanted 30,000 songs, you’d have to wait 250 years as pointed out by Ars Technica.
