Microsoft got to be talked about due to the fact that it posted a Tweet in which there was a Mac M1 device, not compatible with Windows.
Getting confused between one or more devices made by Apple is certainly not difficult, given that – between designs that are always rather attributable to others, and names that are not always very clear – it happens to think of one device rather than another. The problem is aggravated, however, when a mistake of this type is made by the figure who manages the social networks of Microsoft , a “competitor” of Apple that has recently removed a rather embarrassing Tweet .
As reported on the pages of 9to5Mac , we are talking about a text that concerned spring cleaning, with advice on how to manage the devices in a simple way and avoiding damage. However, along with the text there was an image with a girl using a Mac from the Cupertino colossus. Nothing strange if you imagine one of the Intel models , but unfortunately, as users have noticed in a short time, this was not the case.
The device in question was in fact one of the many Mac M1s in circulation, the new standard of the company that has now started a transition to its Silicon that now seems irreversible. The problem with the computers in question is that they cannot run Windows natively, and as a result Microsoft’s Tweet was advertising a device that didn’t have much to do with their company, perhaps because the wrong image had been chosen. .
Nothing serious in short, if not a small funny mistake that made the thousands of fans smile who immediately realized what happened. As mentioned, the content was quickly removed, and what is certain is that next time the company will pay more attention to the choice of its images when it comes to devices from other companies.
