Hot on the heels of a wildly popular advertising campaign featuring Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld, as well as the overall unprecedented success of their Vista operating system, Microsoft rocked the Northwest Friday with their latest unexpected bombshell:
Effective September 22nd, Sierra Mist will be available in all break rooms.
Sierra Mist will compliment the already stunning selection of free beverages available to Microsoft employees and visitors to their various campuses.
Local news outlets were abuzz following the announcement late today. The Seattle Times jumped on the story, immediately posting it to the front page of their website. Radio news broadcasts included the news as part of their 15-minute briefs, and talk show hosts planned discussion points for the morning’s broadcast.
“We try to keep on top of every little inane thing that goes on at Microsoft,” explained Seattle Times business editor Maria Bixby. “We call it the ‘Microsoft first’ policy.”
It is unknown whether the change will have any long-term effects on various Microsoft product release schedules.
