An advertising war between Microsoft and Google is brewing
Microsoft doesn’t want anyone to get Scroogled and is continuing its anti-Google campaign by recruiting the Pawn Stars to take a few swipes at Google’s Chromebook. The ad masquerading as a scene from the reality TV show boils down to a few cheap insults and the claim that the Chromebook isn’t a real laptop.
Microsoft has a bug in its shorts over Google's dominance in the search space and figured the way to stomp it out is by attacking its rival in a snarky campaign called "Scroogled." The Redmond software giant is going all out here by not only dedicating a website to calling Google out for various privacy shenanigans, but also selling a line of Scroogled products, including coffee mugs, hoodies, hats, and t-shirts.
