In fact, don’t expect Microsoft to develop a competitor to either Google Now or Apple’s Siri, Microsoft’s director of Bing search, Stefan Weitz, told PCWorld in an interview. Instead, individual products within Microsoft will be able to tap into the vast collection of data that Microsoft has amassed through its partnerships with Facebook, Foursquare, LinkedIn, Yahoo, and many more—far, far beyond what Google, which has favored an independent approach, can achieve, Weitz said.
According to MS when Google collects your data you've been Scroogled. When Microsoft collects your data its a momentous marketing move that makes them great. This type of PR is one of many reasons why people dislike Microsoft as a company, a very arrogant company these days.

ehhhh, not really related at all. One scans your email and targets you with unwanted ads, the other one taps into a vast array of public data to answer you queries.
