Spot The Difference

Microsoft has apologised for editing a photo to change a black man's head to that of a white man.

The picture, showing employees sitting around a desk, appeared unaltered on the firm's US website. But on the website of its Polish business unit the black man's head was replaced with a white face, although the colour of his hands was unchanged.

Microsoft had altered the image to reflect the ethnic make-up of the Polish population, which is predominantly white. However, one wag has commented, "Clearly Microsoft was attempting to please all markets by having a man with both a white face and a black hand to sybolise interracial harmony."
