Microsoft pokes fun at Google again, this time with Googlighting video

With the recent changes in privacy policies that Google has implemented across its line of products, Microsoft has been jumping on top of the search engine giant with repeated attacks. This time, we get to see a new video poking fun at Google Apps.

“What happens when the world’s largest advertising business tries to sell productivity software on the side? Beware the Googlighting Stranger,” the video description from Microsoft reads. Microsoft claims that Google’s cloud solution (Google Apps) fails to meet a wide range of business needs. Take a look at the video below:

Just recently, Microsoft claimed that Google has been tracking users of Apple’s Safari browser while they surf the web via an iPhone, iPad, or Macs. From what Microsoft says, these attacks are not new and Google has circumvented the privacy protections built into Apple’s Safari browser in a “deliberate, and ultimately, successful fashion.”

Microsoft even claimed that Google is circumventing the default privacy settings in Internet Explorer. Microsoft continues to brag about how Internet Explorer 9 is the “browser of choice” as it was designed to give the fastest, safest, and most private browsing experience.

Microsoft has also previously released a video poking fun at Google’s Gmail service that points out just how much Google cares more about advertising revenue than privacy.
