Microsoft Fumbles for Cachet Among Yuppies, Hipsters

microsoft_viral.jpg

We need a term for yuppie hipsters. Yipsters? Hipstuppies? Yupsters? Be-suited Self-Entitled Echo Boomers?

Whoever they are, Microsoft is groping desperately for their attention in this virally-intended video for Office 2007. It does a good job of demonstrating '07's various functions for the "technical types" of the world but doesn't change the fact that they're still the stodgy awkward behemoths just left of savvy. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

I thought it was kind of funny. The voice over maybe could have been a bit different...
