Gmail Has Its Nose in Your Colon
Once again, a video meant for internal use only has been leaked to the web. This time, it's from Microsoft which is hyping Office 365 and it's called Gmail Man. With a catchy tune and the questionably suitable lyrics "Probing every sentence and all your punctuation. Got his nose in every colon and every situation," the video attempts to portray Gmail as abusing one's privacy.
The video was played in front of an audience of 15,000 at Microsoft's annual Global Exchange sales conference held July 20.
While the video is somewhat humorous even if it stoops to silly fifth grade boys bathroom humor, it shoots itself in the foot. The video argues Microsoft 365 is a business application that, unlike Gmail, carries no ads. Perhaps the creators of the video should have realized Google has a business solution as well and one of the features of that solution is the ability to disable ads.
