First Microsoft went after Apple with the laptop hunter ads that jabbed Apple for expensive laptops. Now it's going after iPod. In this latest ad, "The Apprentice" contestant and financial planner Wes Moss claims that it would cost $30,000 to fill an iPod with music, but only $14.99 a month for the Zune's subscription service.
More breakdown on the cost:
Zune, 120 GB = $249.99
iPod Classic, 120 GB = $249
Here's the ad below:
Update 5:28 p.m.: The ads are only running online.
Also, the $14.99 Zune Pass subscription includes 10 songs that can be added to the owner's permanent subscription each month.
