Battle of the Computer Chicks

Did anyone else notice the similarities between the New York Times' profile of Google's Marissa Mayer and her efforts to control and update Google's look and feel and today's Associated Press profile of Microsoft's Julie Larson-Green, who has been playing a key role in the development of the look and feel of the new Windows 7 operating system?

It looks like that while Google and Microsoft continue to battle it out in the realm of computer applications and cyberspace, their PR firms seem to be waging a similar battle with similar weapons and similar aim -- move the computer news beyond the stereotypical geek engineers and the applications themselves and put a more human and dare I say more attractive face on each of them.
