Desquamation: 5 Hour's agency made their ads look cheap and shiatty so everyone would talk about how cheap and shiatty they looked, in turn talking about 5 Hour Energy. It's actually not a bad idea...

Mikey1969: As for the ad campaign, I saw one of these "Scroogled" ads last night, and I kept expecting ti to be some low budget email plugin. I couldn't believe M$ would commission such a crappy commercial.


I had to youtube some of those ads... I almost, but not quite, expected someone to say, "SCROOGLED! APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE FOREHEAD!"

imgod2u: That's a feature of Chrome. You can sign in to your gmail account from any Chrome browser (it supports multiple users, so you can switch between) on any computer -- even your Android phone and everything is sync'ed across. This includes history, saved passwords, bookmarks, etc. You can, of course, select what to sync but I find it incredibly useful.


Yup. Firefox offers a similar thing ("Mozilla Sync"). It's also quite useful.

Because they do scan your emails to simply give you targeted advertising.  GMail isn't selling your mom's "hello, how are you doing" email to the FBI.
