Microsoft Doesn't Get the Chromebook.

November 30, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: GOOGL , MSFT

Software giant Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) is launching another assault on Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) in the Redmond, Washington based company's "Scroogled" campaign, this time deriding the Google Chrombook platform. I think that Adrian Kingsley-Hughes at ZDNet and Harry McCracken over at TIME both summarize my position very well: Rather than causing consumers to shift to Microsoft platforms, the Scroogled campaign is essentially "free advertising" Microsoft is giving to other companies. Microsoft's strategy is unintentionally backfiring on them and producing the opposite effect of what Microsoft wants.
