Microsoft's Anti-Google campaign is still alive. A new Scroogled video was uploaded on YouTube today. Microsoft talked with random people on the street to find out their opinion on the way Gmail serves ads to users reading their emails. All of them clearly don't understand that the emails are not read by anyone. It's algorithms that choose what ad is to serve by scanning the body part of the email by a bot.

So this is the only way Microsoft can advertise their own sh*tty mail service and "force" Gmail users to join the retarded Outlook? I'm 100% sure all of the "random" people on the street they asked are actually Microsoft workers and everything in that video is fake. So, stupid Microsoft, you get my -1 for your sh*tty Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, ugly and stupid Office 2013, your anti-Google campaign is retarded and plain stupid and I hope you die as soon as possible so the world is free from your stupid whining.

LMAO :lol:
I don't think people on Winmatrix hate Win8. I think they have an opinion that the Metro Start Screen is not as good as was promised. I hope this will change very soon.

Can't really generalize. I'm pretty sure there are people who are like what you said, but i'm also sure that there are people who are all-out-full-fledged-M$-haters.

Microsoft itself is giving us reasons to hate them. Scroogled is the perfect example!

Yeah, it is better to spread the shit on other companies instead of making your own software better.

IE is shit.

Outlook.com is shit.

Windows 8 is shit.

Office 2013 has completely broken spellchecker for Russian language. It is not bad - it is unusable.

And for irony, that spellchecker is provided as update for Office 2010 too. This is also shit! I have to stuck with Office 2007 for proper spell checking.

I saying this as user of Outlook and Windows 8.

It is worst MS software/service ever.

They just have no rights to make such videos.

Damn you Microsoft. GTFO.

Even though outlook is not nice (according to above comments), but Gmail and google really scares me ! I know every company shares our information, but atleast do not give us goose bumps showing it !

Nooo, I didn't want to hear this from you! :D

I hope you won't switch to Mac or Linux and leave us behind. I use at least 5 apps made by you. :P

I already have Linux and use it. And I like it, because LXDE provides me old school classic UX.

However, I can't leave MS, because my primary occupation is MS SQL.

Their marketing guys must be sleeping on this or just be dumb. This "scroogled" campaign is embarassing.

IE10 isn't shit.

Windows 8 - fair enough, I can understand.

Outlook.com is definitely not shit.

Office 2013 is excellent, sorry to hear that it has become unusable for you because they broke spellcheck in Russian.

 

I agree that Microsoft shouldn't be making such ads. It's embarrassing. But come on, that doesn't make everything they do "shit".
