Re: Google is eventually going to take down Microsoft

"Yeah but they can play on the "big brother Google knows all about you, complete lack of respect for privacy" angle what with its relentless collection of information about browsing and emailing habits."

They not only will, but are using that line now. Google for Work removes all of the crawlers, bots, etc they use in their ad sponsored consumer services and, obviously, removes ads as well. Not applicable.... Plus, outside of the IT community blogosphere, I don't think people really care about how facebook, Google, etc operate. Anyone think Microsoft wouldn't do exactly the same thing if they had the tech prowess?
