Microsoft apologizes for changing race in photo to suit Clients

Barry Artiste Op/Ed and Satire

Its nice to see Microsoft designing IT for countries world wide and suiting the tastes of their Clients needs.   One wonders what other photoshop tricks they have designed to sate the unique needs of their Springeresque Clients, so I thought I would do it for them.

Software giant Microsoft Corp. is apologizing for altering a photo on its website to change the race of one of the people shown in the picture.

A photo on the Seattle-based company's U.S. website shows two men, one Asian and one black, and a white woman seated at a conference room table. But on the website of Microsoft's Polish business unit, the black man's head has been replaced with that of a white man. The colour of his hand remains unchanged.
