    Those gentlemen will do just about anything for extra money. :D As a fan of the show I think the commercial is very amusing. The Scroogled campaign doesn't mean too much to me. By now most should understand the motives of Google and what they do. But Microsoft needs to take care that they don't end up being the pot that calls the kettle black.

    That was rather pathetic and inaccurate. Offline apps, terminal, dual booting, etc. At least I learned a new word.

    @Dave0291: They already are a pot. Just look into it and virtually all major American companies are.

    Yes, that's how you pronounce it I think. At first I've mistaken the meaning of Scroogled, until I learned it's a Microsoft campaign unrelated to Scroogle.

    Message was: If you own a Chromebook, you can't even pawn it?
