In many circles, a little bit of trash-talking with your opponents is harmless and humorous. In fact, one could say it's a "right of passage" in many ways; however, sometimes the context of this "ribbing" means everything and becomes purely mean-spirited. We have such a case-in-point today. Microsoft just last night sent a message out via Twitter calling on their "followers" to come up with Android malware horror stories, and asked them to include the hashtag #DroidRage to add extra impact.
They obviously want to dredge up more of the lame Android is full of malware tripe in order to make it look bad and market themselves as more secure. This is highly ironic considering Microsoft products on PCs are notorious for being malware magnets. What do you guys think? Is Microsoft just engaging in friendly competition, or are they pushing things too far?
If you think what Microsoft is doing is bogus, feel free to share your Microsoft horror stories, or perhaps your Android happy stories over on their Twitter thread. Maybe we can get enough of a backlash going they will realize their devious plan backfired.
