Scroogled is not going away, despite almost universally negative reactions. Last week they opened up a brand new store full of Scroogled merchandise. Today they have released a new video to attack Google and Chromebooks. The video parodies the TV show Pawn Stars as we watch a lady try to pawn her Google Chromebook for some extra cash.
Rick says the Chromebook can’t do as much as a real PC. He tells the lady that it can’t run Windows or Office, and if you don’t have an internet connection it is pretty useless. He then proceeds to explain how Google uses the Chromebook to collect user information to sell to ad companies. You know, the typical Scroogled shtick.
Last week on the podcast we joked about the Scroogled team being locked away in a cave at Microsoft. No matter how much negative criticism the Scroogled campaign gets it’s like they don’t even notice. They just keep pumping out new videos. We think it’s time for Scroogled to end. What do you think?
