  • Thurrott: Fact-check: Microsoft’s Creators Update introduction video

    Posted on April 10th, 2017 at 12:06 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    A good one from Paul on Thurrott.com that I missed…

    Microsoft was somehow able to pack 12 peeks at new Creators Update features into just 20 seconds. And of those 12 items, 8 are completely fake. Two depict features that existed previous to the Creators Update. One is something very few people will ever use.

    Microsoft still pushes the video.

    In fact, if you look at the March 29 official announcement, a brief clip at the beginning includes all sorts of marketing doublespeak. Hard to imagine Microsoft can pack so much deceit into an 8 second clip.
