Off by half a continent
That (Microsoft ad running on front page, see attachment) is not where Switzerland is. They're only off by half a continent.
Call me a nitpicker, but this is just plain stupid. They're running an add featuring the Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland (presumably a big client), but they don't have the courtesy of spending half a minute to at least get the country right. You even could argue they got the wrong continent (the dot points to some location in either Belarus or Russia). Come on multi-billion company, get your basic facts straight.
I wish to express my gratitude to the people of Italy. Thank you for inventing pizza.

Heh heh heh, it makes you wonder where the other dots are suppose to represent.
