All I Can Say About Jerry Seinfeld and Microsoft Is...
Nobody's asked for my comments on Jerry Seinfeld now shilling for Microsoft, but here they are anyway:
1. It's a better choice than Flooz.com made when it hired Whoopie Goldberg to represent it back in the 1990s.
2. It's a great short-term deal for Jerry, who's career has proven increasingly irrelevant in recent years, but it may wipe out whatever affection people still have for him.
3. It uncomfortably suggests that Vista -- despite the hundreds of millions of marketing dollars spent to promote it -- is "an operating system about nothing."
