In an act that seemingly defies the spirit of the season, Microsoft has launched a line of “Scroogled” products just in time for the holidays. Some of the brilliant and catchy stocking stuffers include a mug that says “Keep Calm While We Steal Your Data,” and a t-shirt that says “Don’t Get Scroogled.” There are other clever designs, such as a spider with a Chrome icon on its abdomen and a word cloud with a bunch of phrases that are supposedly synonyms for Scroogled, which is still not a word.

There’s a hat with the word “Scroogled” embedded across the top as well, in the classic Google font and color scheme, and each product has a cute item description: “Hate being Scroogled by Google? Hate the sun in your eyes? Then you’re in luck. This 100% cotton, one-size-fits all hat is a perfect way to avoid both.”

If you have a friend or family member that just utterly despises Google, it might be worth taking a look at the Microsoft Store. On the other hand, Microsoft might have a wee bit more credibility with its anti-Google message if it weren’t Scroogling its own users with Windows 8.1.
