Have you been Scroogled? If you use Gmail or if you’ve ever sent an email message to someone on Gmail or if you’ve ever even said the word or thought about possibly using Gmail, you’ve been Scroogled. Doesn’t feel so good, does it?
Microsoft just launched an aggressive anti-campaign designed to get people to switch from Gmail to Outlook.com. The basis for the mud slinging is the fact that Google scans all Gmail messages in order to serve up targeted advertising. Outlook.com doesn’t.
And as if that wasn’t enough, they hang Google with its own words, like this quote from Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt:
“There is what I call the creepy line. The Google policy on a lot of things is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”
