Microsoft: Google Docs the equivalent of a frostingless cupcake

Today in the latest installment of Microsoft vs. Google, there’s an appropriately timed Valentine’s Day-themed video.

In the video, posted on the official Why Microsoft blog, the software giant slams Google Docs for not keeping the formatting and style of one’s Office documents — unlike Office Web Apps, at least according to Microsoft.

And, as a kicker, Microsoft’s even emphasizing the point with the hashtag #stylematters. (Hmm – hasn’t it usually been Microsoft, over the years, who’s gotten slammed for a lack of style?)

Microsoft and Google have been going at it recently, battling it out in ads and the courts.

Here’s the Valetine’s Day vid:
