Scroogled? The Big Boys Get Ready to Rumble

I just caught my first view of what is probably a Declaration of War.  It’s the new Microsoft commercial on television in  metropolitan Seattle area —- a broadside fired at archrival search engine giant, Google.  

Google-Microsoft Map

While Google’s world headquarters is in California, a few years ago they built a new Google Campus in Kirkland, WA, less than 8 miles away from Microsoft’s headquarters and main campus.

I found the video on Google-owned Youtube.  The map is courtesy of Google, too.  LOL!

  1. Better then either, try DuckDuckGo…

  2. Funny. That made me think of 3 things:

    1. Might they have meant “Are you getting Screwgled?” :-/

    2. There used to be a search site called Scroogle that did not record your searches. I still have the link in my folder:

    http://www.scroogle.org/cgi-bin/scraper.htm

    …but it now connects to some other site. So Scroogle must have been Scrapped.

    3. There are 3-4 volcanos in WA. If another 1-2 “tech giants” move to WA (Yahoo, Apple?), one for each volcano, things can really begin to rumble & blow each other into orbit & we can all go back to slower times of pen, paper, ink, & stamps. :)
