I Wonder if Microsoft really knows where NZ is?

Microsoft pays dear for insults through ignorance

"only 23 out of 56 young Americans knew the whereabouts of the Pacific Ocean."

"The company [Microsoft] has now launched geography classes for its staff to avoid further bloomers which have caused embarrassment and cost money on a grand scale"

· A game called Age of Empires 2 offended the Saudi Arabian authorities because it showed victorious Muslim armies turning churches into mosques. The game was withdrawn from sale in the kingdom

· The Korean government, objected because Microsoft software showed the national flag in reverse. The software had to be changed.
