Microsoft clobbers Google over privacy at WPC 2013

Microsoft has been on an extended campaign to go after one of its biggest rivals, Google, over the past several months, especially over what Microsoft says are Google's poor privacy policies. Today, as part of Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference, the company's chief operating officer Kevin Turner took Google to task again for its privacy issues.

The day 3 keynote at WPC 2013 had Turner mention the large Android security flaw that was recently found by Bluebox Security. The flaw reportedly affects nearly all Android products and could potentially let hackers take over Android devices. Turner asked, "Is this what customers should be betting their business on?" Turner claims that Microsoft offers up the strongest platforms in terms of security for its customers and partners. 

Turner also talked during the keynote about how Microsoft products and services besides Windows are being used more extensively by businesses. 85 percent of the Fortune 500 companies now use both the SharePoint and Yammer social network feeds, according to Turner, and 90 of the Fortune 100 companies use the Lync messaging service.
