"take the focus off of Windows slowing dying."

Fact. All of this 'Google is looking at your data... ooooh' stuff was created as a Microsoft FUD campaign in the Ballmer years. They were selling 'Scroogled' apparel at the Microsoft store in Redmond. It was sad. Microsoft couldn't produce a Google quality product at any cost so they tried to scare people. Check it out if you think I'm making this up. Microsoft paid millions in PR to try to convince people that Google was doing some nefarious with their data... even though MSFT knew full well that Google was just using abstracted user data to serve relevant ads, and was busy trying to copy Google's ad tech.
