Google rolled out an update to Gmail last month to split the emails into categories and then display them in different tabs. One of the tabs was called Promotions, which would group together all the promotional offers you sign up to receive.

 

Some users have started to receive new emails in the Promotions tab which are actually Google adverts packaged as emails. :mellow:

Scroogled again! Thank God I switched to Live Mail. I've had it with Google and their advertising nonsense.

Yeah! Microsoft never sends you advertisements (about the new surface pro or windows phone or xbox or some useless feature they have added), EVER!

I don't think they do at all, unless you have subscribed to their newsletters.

Damn you Google. You were supposed not to give Microsoft any reason for starting the next Scroogled campaign.
