Microsoft selling anti-Google merch

“Are you living in an underground bunker out of fear of the National Security Agency? ” Alexis Kleinman asks for The Huffington Post. “Are you a Microsoft employee? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, you might be interested in the following product.”

 
“In a bid to drum up sentiment against the data-hungry search giant, Microsoft has begun selling a line of anti-Google merchandise at its online store,” Kleinman reports. “Whether you’re at home sipping your morning coffee or on the go, there’s gear for you.”

MacDailyNews Take: Perhaps crockery is a market in which Microsoft could actually make decent products. We bet that cup leaks, though.

    1. The mug and the T-shirts, already sold out — many of them to Google employees, it’s said!

      This is an interesting marketing ploy by Microsoft to promote its Bing search engine which they insist protects your privacy, compared to the reverse for Google’s.

      Apple is keeping calm, coolly watching Microsoft jab their mutual adversary Google.

    1. I completely disagree, this was awesome. Win 8 isn’t a complete disaster, it was just foolish to think they could marry a desktop legacy OS to a tablet, but I’m not sure it couldn’t have been done even if MS did not pull it off.

    2. “The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste. They have absolutely no taste. And I don’t mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they don’t think of original ideas, and they don’t bring much culture into their products.” Steve Jobs

  1. How bout Keep calm while we sabotage office365 for iPhones
    Or Keep calm while we office for Mac is still lagging behind the pc counterpart. Or Keep calm while we open copy cat apple stores, except we sell copy cat iPads. Or Keep calm while we talk about how you can’t manage iPads in a AD environment because we won’t build tools for it, heh, that’s my favorite. finally, Keep calm while we cry about others not building features for WinPhone8.
