Flashback FridayMicrosoft’s new advertisement for Internet Explorer is a salute to every fad you can think of from the 1990s.

What executive at Microsoft thought it was a good idea to compare one of their premiere products no fads that no one wants to remember?

Technology is about innovation and moving forward, but yet Microsoft somehow has come under the impression that saying, “Hey, you should use something from the 1990s to do all your work of today!” Yes, there is a little thing at the end about how it has grown up, but comparing yourself to pogs? Not the best idea I think.

Enjoy your trip down memory lane, it is rather amusing, but as a way to advertise your cutting edge software? I don’t think so.
