    Funny, and somewhat true.

    Pretty funny. Except... GMail collects data "anonymously."

    I also don't like smear campaigns of any kind. Especially when the Bing bar does the same thing (for google searches) and then uses those search results in Bing.

    This is Apple-level crap campaigning.

    Big bucks are at stake. We need to tune out the hard-sell, the FUD, the spinning of numbers, the "independent" surveys and focus on our genuine needs. The suborning of research by vested interests is nothing new.

    Sometimes we only need to tune into the humor and ignore the advertising!

    If possible, the humour should be classy and subtle, not scatological.
