Just ask him.

Microsoft's online support site features a new way to get help: Just "Ask Maxwell," the new, suspiciously gay search service with answers to your questions about Microsoft. According to his (fictional) online bio, 26-year-old Maxwell is a student of life who "is friendly, outgoing, helpful, diligent, and reliable. He loves computer technology and his dog." He also plays ultimate Frisbee and is teaching himself to cook. If this doesn't send your gay-dar into overdrive, maybe you should switch to a Mac.
