Edelman gets Windows Vista launch account

PR Week is reporting that Edelman is taking over the Microsoft Windows Vista account. That underscores that Edelman and Microsoft need even more transparency at this time into what they are going to do with bloggers.

This is a big deal and a big loss for Waggener Edstrom.

UPDATE: Mary Jo Foley wrote me and said that Edelman didn’t take the Windows Vista PR account from Waggener Edstrom, just the one-day launch in January. Sorry for the error.


Apple’s PR is “blame it on Microsoft”

Yeah, Paul, I was just reading through my feeds (I just shared a ton of items on my link blog) and noticed that Apple has been taking a lot of crap for blaming its shipping a virus on Microsoft. That WAS classless. Paul Mooney called it right.

By the way, I’m hearing about all sorts of problems with Apple’s MacBooks (and Maryam’s MacBookPro runs very hot). Maybe Apple should take the log out of its own eye?

Speaking of saying what I think, Doc Searls did that today on a post about PayPerPost.
