Poking fun at vaporware hype and the outlandish claims of some software developers, Parallels’ latest video promoting the announcement of Parallels Desktop 4.0 went live of YouTube on Friday under the title Man’s Greatest Achievement.
While the new edition of Parallels Desktop still allows users to run Microsoft Windows on thier Macs and sports faster performance while using fewer resources, the video jokingly claims it will “stop and reverse the affects of global warming, it will eliminate our need for fossil fuel.”
Parallels Desktop 4.0 for Mac is available for USD$79.99. New users can test a free, fully-functional copy for 15 days. Current Parallels Desktop users can upgrade their existing software for only USD$39.99 — a 50% off promotional price available until November 30, 2008. Users that purchased version 3.0 on or after September 1, 2008, qualify for a free upgrade to version 4.0.
