Google Bans Microsoft For Being Microsoft

All the noise around security concerns is just that. Noise. And if a company with the technology prowess of Google can’t get it’s security act together we all have something to be worried about – especially given the amount of our data they have.

While the rationale that Windows is much more broadly distributed than other operating systems, and therefore more susceptible and attractive to attack – holds true for the rest of us, that it holds true for Google is nuts. They are just a big, juicy target period.

But by framing it as a security driven decision, they contribute to the mythology (and some of the reality) surrounding Windows security. But come on, Google competes more with Microsoft every day.

Frank Shaw crafts a doozy of a response from his personal twitter account, pointing to some of the idiocy of the reporting.

bad headline, wrong premise here. Google going google, okay, but free pass from FT on reason = bad reporting. http://chilp.it/1e421d

News flash: Google bans Bing from its computers. Must credit FT. Picture on Bing home page is distracting to G engineers.

News flash: Google bans ford cars using Sync from its parking lot, citing security issues. Must credit FT.
