Just a few things I wanted to note from this past week. I haven’t spent much time at all keeping up with all the blogs or the news this week, so only a few links this time:
Can someone out there name another industry that has fraud rates anywhere near this level? Maybe loansharking? Drug dealing? I’m drawing a blank here..
The company that Microsoft has pursued is controversial: Claria, an adware marketer formerly called Gator, and best known for its pop-up ads and software that tracks people visiting Web sites. The Gator adware has frequently been denounced by privacy advocates for its intrusiveness.
Hmmm now I’m going to see if I can actually get any work done today! 😆
