New blog post: Leaked Microsoft video: Gmail Man

This video was leaked from a recent event called Microsoft Global Experience (MGX). MGX is an annual Microsoft marketing and advertising expo.

Didn’t we already had that conversation back in 2004 when Gmail was launched? The scanning of keywords for ads placement is done by machines and no human is reading your email in order to deliver targeted ads. So unless machines become self aware, there is nothing to worry about. And by the way, the administrator can disable ads on Google Apps for Business or Education account . Perhaps Microsoft might want to do some research on their competitor before making such videos. The joke is now on them.
