Recently Microsoft took their ‘You’ve been “Scroogled”‘ smear campaign against Google a step further. For those who don’t know MS has been running ads for well over a year now pointing the finger at Google and Gmail for “stealing” customer information. In reality, both companies are guilty of this as Microsoft’s Skype and Xbox ONE products are known to cooperate with PRISM, the National Security Agency (NSA) project.
Microsoft put some ‘You’ve been Scroogled'” T-Shirts and Coffee mugs on sale (complete with Google Chrome logos) and it turns out Google employees are purchasing these as a joke and also make the argument that in order to buy them you need a Microsoft Account with full identity information. Who’s really stealing more customer data? We at RealGamerNewz aren’t really sure, but take a look at these ridiculous ‘back-and-forth’s between the two less-than-professional companies’ representatives and their so-called crimes against privacy.
***Editor’s Note: It’s important that we make readers aware that Google has said its users “can’t expect privacy” (word for word quotation that their own search engine can give you plenty of sources on) and Microsoft, Google, Apple, alongside many other software giants have admitted publicly that they are working with the United States spy program for the NSA. There’s nowhere to turn though, this is truly a global thing and it is here to stay protesting be damned. These faux-battles between MS and Google are likely a trick to get people out of the loop thinking that only one company is responsible for spying. Here’s some more information as well as the back and forth bullying between Google and Microsoft in the form of memes created by them and their supporters.

Nintendo has revealed that this November 2013 Japan will see two new 3DS XL models release at 19,900 Yen (roughly just over $200 American USD).

The Orange X Black and Turquoise X Black 3DS XL bundles pictured above and below come on the heels of Nintendo’s Pokemon X & Y Limited Edition 3DS XL bundles in the United States as well as the future-looking announcement of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Limited Edition 3DS XL and Luigi Special Edition bundles.
