Recently Microsoft has started airing commercials about connecting people and connections with people. I’ve only been able to find these on the Microsoft website. With all the talk lately about Lotus/IBM marketing, this is a prime example of where IBM dropped the ball. How is it that IBM/Lotus has a product named Connections and it’s Microsoft doing the connections commercials? Of course, there is no official response from IBM on this, at least that I know of. That’s not to say that something hasn’t been said, but surely I’m not the only person in the Lotus Blogosphere that’s seen these commercials and thought this?
