Google already knows you want this mug

In a bit of tongue-in-cheek jesting, Microsoft is selling a coffee mug that takes a jab at Google's propensity for "data aggregation," AKA, "Do no evil.*"

I think it's a jab at Gmail, since I know that's one of their selling points for their email products.

I was going to buy one, had it in my cart and hit "submit," but apparently between first seeing the mug and trying to check out, it sold out. Either that or their ecommerce system is a piece of junk. But I would never accu$e M$ of using broken $oftware, so it mu$t have been $old out.

 

 

* Googlespeak for "collect all your data and sell it to the highest bidder."
