Microsoft’s Sour Grapes Store
by Mark Wilson
The outright tackiness of Microsoft’s “Scroogled” store is matched only by the hypocrisy of the item descriptions. Regarding the “Scroogled” T-shirt: “A classic that shows the world that you’re tired of having your digital life monetized by Google.” That’s goddamn right! I want my digital life to be monetized by Microsoft!
As Jon Gruber pointed out, “Who would actually buy any of this stuff?” (Though it turns out Google employees are loving it.)
