Google's taking the high road with this one.

A day after Microsoft released t-shirts, hoodies and mugs with anti-Google disses aimed at the company, the Android-maker came back with a one-liner that knocks Microsoft back into reality. The "Scroogled" campaign is Microsoft's marketing ploy to advertise Google's privacy problems, and their attempt to put fear in the hearts of Gmail users and the like. Now, whether that's true or not (you should be careful what you send digitally, wherever it's through) Microsoft walked into a Google comeback pretty easily, and they deserved it: "Microsoft's latest venture comes at no surprise," a Google spokesperson said. "Competition in the wearables space really is heating up."

Boom. Right in the kisser. That might seem like a pretty normal response at first, but after you break it down, considering that Microsoft has no wearable technology out, or even announced, while Google has the anticipated Glass coming out in a matter of months, making t-shirts to diss other companies isn't even on Google's to-do list. It's meaningless to even do that when, at least in the wearable technologies department, Microsoft isn't even competition for Google. And in the phone department? It's a two-man game against Android and Apple—Windows Phone still has a lot of catching up to do. Now Bing that.
