If All Else Fails, Smear

When you can't build a better mousetrap, you might as well smear people, right?

platformMicrosoft is back at it with its Google smear campaign. Google employees are reading individual emails to serve up better ads.

Or so Ballmer et. al would have you believe.


To my knowledge, Google employees don’t read any Gmail messages. Rather, algorithms serve up ads to support free products. This is the essence of the freemium model.

Do the math on the number of emails sent. Does Google employ a team of monkeys reading these emails?

Simon Says

Come on, Ballmer. Innovate more and complain less. You might be better off.

Most Google smears come from Microsoft these days. Most Microsoft smears seem to be coming from Microsoft customer and users.
