Microsoft has attacked Google numerous times via its Scroogled campaign before. The company has now turned its sights to Android apps which people buy from Google Play store.


"When you buy an Android app from the Google app store, they give the app maker your full name, email address and the neighborhood where you live. This occurs without clear warning every single time you buy an app. If you can't trust Google's app store, how can you trust them for anything?"


Watch the video below:



Convinced enough? But in reality, when you buy something from the internet, the seller gets your information. That’s how things work. If you don't trust the seller, don't buy the app!

App store is just a marketplace. Anyone can sell his app there if he follows the guidelines.

Honest words if I have ever heard any.  It's like telling people to not to buy items from eBay or Amazon... because they get your information.

Microsoft - taking stupidity to a whole new level... I just can't believe a company like Microsoft can act so retarded?


This is the most desperate marketing campaign I've ever seen... their sh*tty products like Windows 8, Windows phone, Office 2013, Outlook and so on are so retarded, that I'm not surprised no one wants to use them! Since they have absolutely no advantages, compared to the rivals, Microsoft's only escape is to throw mud at others, just in order to push their own software garbage! http://www.techtree....t-campaign.html No, Microsoft, thanks, you suck, go away and die!
