microsoft spins android malware into windows phone giveaway

from computerworld: Microsoft is using the latest malware campaign aimed at rival Android to give away new Windows 7 Phones to the five Android users who tell the best tales of woe. “More malware on Android! Been hit? Share yr #droidrage story to win a #windowsphone upgrade. 5 best (worst?) win!” said Ben Rudolph, Microsoft’s Windows Phone evangelist on Twitter late Monday. In his tweet, Rudolph linked to a Monday Computerworld story about Google scrubbing 22 malicious apps from its Android Market. The offer appeared legitimate: An hour after Rudolph tweeted, Microsoft’s official Twitter feed noted the deal.
