Advertising Money: Microsoft spends twice as much as Apple

Interesting chart of the day from SAI today.  With all of those iPhone and iPad ads everywhere, you’d think Apple would be outspending  everyone in the tech space.  However, it appears that Microsoft has spent more than double Apple’s budget in 2009 ” across print, online, radio, tv, and outdoor.”


It is also interesting to note that Google is spending almost nothing ($11 mil?!) in advertising. Perhaps it gives itself good rates on Adsense.
