Microsoft Surface billboards...

There's a war going on out there at the moment. It's not loud and bloody and full of explosions, instead it's happening in the courtroom as technology companies battle it out over patents and intellectual property rights.

Meanwhile the online market is converging, companies are buying competitors and promising start-ups, computers are becoming tablets, tablets are becoming smartphones, phones are becoming computers. Everything is becoming smaller, slimmer, faster, more powerful, more mobile.

How is the everyday consumer supposed to know what the best option is when buying a new phone, laptop, tablet is these days? Better to have choice than none at all at the end of the day, at least it keeps everyone competitive.

Apple may have been first to market with its iPad, but that's not stopping other tech giants like Microsoft from trying to muscle in on this lucrative new territory with its new Surface tablet.

And with the Christmas gifting season fast approaching Microsoft has no qualms about spending big, quite literally, on billboards to make their new product as visible as possible around L.A.

They seem to be missing the energy and vibrancy of the accompanying TV commercials and it probably doesn't help that Apple are well known for their predominantly white backgrounds in their fun ad campaigns either.

The blue giant-sized Surface billboards were snapped along Sunset Boulevard on October 29, whilst the tall pink version was photographed at the top of La Cienega Boulevard along Sunset Strip on November 3.
