Microsoft wants you to know that Google reads your love letters

Microsoft has been releasing a series of “Scroogled” videos that bemoan Google’s services and how they invade your privacy. Not to miss out on the Valentine’s day holiday, Microsoft has released another video in the series.

This latest video attacks Google for reading your love letters as they are delivered to the recipients. This is an obvious attack at how Google skims your email to serve up advertisements based on the context of the email.

Microsoft wants you to know that Outlook.com does not do such things and lets your private messages be, well, private.

While we do not know how effective these advertisements are at getting users to leave Google services for Microsoft, the campaign is more about showing Google’s true intentions when they offer up their free services.
