The Only “Urge” Microsoft Inspires…

Is vomitorial in nature:

Bill Gates aims to take over your living room and late Wednesday he unveiled a new music service and new software to do it.
Using an appearance with Justin Timberlake, the Microsoft chairman debuted a new music service, Urge, to directly compete with the iTunes music store and interface. Urge launches with over 2 million tracks for purchase or as part of an all-you-can eat subscription, an option the iTunes music store doesn’t have. The offering will include exclusive material from MTV, though it will not be compatible with iPods, which are currently the most popular MP3 player.

I mean, what an unappealing name. This is what happens when corporate duffi try to get hip.

  1. …corporate duffi try to get hip.
    Justin TIMBERLAKE? Failed miserably on that one, too.

    Microsoft stock up. Apple stock down.

  3. Ken Summers says:

    First of all, it’s spelled “doofi”, and second of all, what do you have against the Reverend Justin Timberlake?

  4. Mr. Bingley says:

    Ah, you are correct. It’s ‘doofus’, not ‘duffis’; I must have been thinking of Homer’s beer.

  5. John says:

    Yes, duffis would be the Lithuanian masculine, not Latin. Although the plural is still”i”.

  6. Nightfly says:

    You always think of Homer’s beer. In fact…
    D’oh! A beer! I need a beer!
    Re – the guy who gives me beer…
    Mi – the guy who wants the beer,
    Fa – where I’d go to get the beer.
    So – what’s wrong with drinking beer?
    La – la la la la la la…
    Ti – I’d rather have a beer…

    Never underestimate microsloth’s ability to dominate with non-existent or inferior products.

    I think I’ll hang onto my iPod for now, thanks. I use Microsoft, but that doesn’t mean I’m in love with it.

  9. Ken Summers says:

    But the question remains, what do you have against the Right Reverend Justin Timberlake? Don’t you think he adds some seriously-needed seriousness to Mr. Gates?
