Microsoft bought up CreativeBitsIvan | Fri, 2005-04-01 09:01
Yes, the rumors were true. Microsoft contacted us four weeks ago that they are interested in buying CreativeBits. At first we said no, but than they mentioned a 6 figure number we couldn't resist, so we gave in.
What does it meant to you? Nothing changes, we're still the same cool guys posting extremely useful tips and tricks. Oh, but from now on we are posting tips about Windows rather than OS X. Also, PS tips will be approached from a Windows user perspective. Sounds cool? We thought so!
Check out our new logo (you may need to refresh the page - CTRL-R) which is a tribute to our new God. We had to change the name of the site to MSCreativeBits as well, but it's not a big deal in exchange for the 50 feet boat and the fat boy Harley motorcycle we're getting with Jim. We're still thinking about a tagline to change our current "Your daily fix of graphic design and OS X". Got any suggestions? One suggestion was "Fix your Windows daily instead of doing graphic design", but was rejected by all members of the board.
Of course it was an April 1 joke. We would never sell CB to MS. There is no such money. Our principles are stronger than our greed. I hope at least some of you fell for it, at least for a minute. I've included the logo with the update for archival purposes. Love you all! Let's get back to work before we receive a letter from MS this time for real.
