Microsoft was handing out copies of Mommy, Why is There a Server in the House? at this year's Consumer Electronics Show. Here's one review of the book from Amazon:
Only a collector of Microsoft memorabilia would want to buy this book. If this sells, it will signal to advertisers worldwide that if they disguise their sales literature cleverly enough, rubes will buy it.
That said, this book is part of a very clever $10 million ad campaign for the Windows Home Server made by HP. The book, by a fictitious psychologist, can be read in its entirely at stayathomeserver com. The site uses fake news clips and the book to promote the idea that servers aren't just office equipment, but make sense in a home that features multiple computers, XBOXes, and other networked technology.
The title is a great one, sure to be a classic along with my all time favorite kids book, Everyone Poops.
