Friday Video and Apps-Driven: Microsoft uses app to resurrect Clippy! What’s next, cats and dogs raining from the sky?

Sorry, this Friday couldn’t end without this unbelievable news. CNN reports that Microsoft has developed an app that helps to train you in the use of various Microsoft Office applications. The app takes the form of a game and it’s named: “Ribbon Hero 2: Clippy’s Second Chance.” That ought to be enough to make your chocolate milk shoot out of your nose if you remember that incredibly unhelpful piece of Microsoft Office esoterica.

But wait there’s more. There’s a video that almost looks like a “Mac versus PC” advertisement. Is it a “wink, wink, nudge, nudge” joke or is it for real?

Coincidence? You decide.
