Microsoft Office Ad Makes Forbes' Magazine A Wi-Fi Router
Microsoft has advertised some of its products by offering free Wi-Fi in public places. Now they're doing something a tad bit different by offering free Wi-Fi inside a magazine.
Redmond is advertising its Office 365 by installing a T-Mobile router into the latest issue of Forbes magazine, and it turns the print publication into a Wi-Fi hotspot for two weeks. The promotion was first reported by Engadget who noted that it was only to included in a "limited number" of the magazines.
"The custom 4-page insert with WiFi Hotspot capabilities ran in the May 6, 2013 issue of Forbes and was sent to a limited number of technology and business professionals."
