What would happen to the iPod box if Microsoft owned the iPod.

Well, that apocalyptic image is the central idea behind this video parody that makes for a funny comparison between Apple and Microsoft Design philosophies.

According to this article, Microsoft confirmed the video was produced by them! Supposedly to show the problems and challenges in Microsoft packaging, and see how they can keep stealing ideas from apple.
