This final note today, in which Microsoft gets this close to the line with its anti-Google marketing campaign.

Google, of course, has Google for its search engine. Microsoft has Bing. It’s doing all it can to gain market share, including, in its latest ads, showing dissatisfied Google shopping searchers with the caption “Scroogled” in big multi-colored letters. Screwed and Google, right?
