Can you believe it? Employees of rival technology companies Microsoft and Apple Inc. were out there in Manhattan shaking hands and embracing each other. Surprised? Everyone was. Especially, the bystanders who probably expected some sort of stand off, even a brawl, when Microsoft employees marched up to the Apple store. But, instead an NYC children's youth choir sang Let There Be Peace On Earth, while the workers from the two companies happily interacted with each other.
Well, in a bid to promote the spirit of goodwill this Christmas, Microsoft released an ad which presented the scene above. The video was released on YouTube on December 1. And, it has so far, garnered 1.5 million views.
Here's hoping that the goodwill between the two arch rivals extends beyond Christmas.
