Microsoft says:

If you are a Safari user, Google may have recently tracked you even though it promised it would not. Want to do something about it? Stop searching with Google and start searching with Bing. Better yet, make Bing your homepage and start every search with Bing.

I am not sure how Microsoft is or will target Apple Safari users with this campaign? But it is a pretty serious ad campaign that might concern many Apple and even non Apple users.
