    I find it really fun how Microsoft is bashing Google. It’s just really childish and I feel like they are hypocritical because I am pretty sure that Microsoft does most of the thing that they claim Google does too. Also Scroogle seems like something a 10 year old would do. When you see the contents in the site, it not very straight forward and at times just say that they are better.

      When you can’t beat’em, “Scroogle” them. I agree with you 100 %. The website is confusing and slightly misleading.

    I like the subjects covered in this review , but i would have added the patent that Google got for pay-for-gaze on Glass. Google says they aren’t committed to making a product of it, but its still very interesting.
