Gator IS Spyware

Hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend, I know mine felt fairly productive and I even got to sleep some. Caught Kill Bill (but y’all know that) also managed to see the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (which I’ll review here later). As this is another brief lunchtime update I wanted to point out a few items that you should checkout around the `net:

Da Goddess gives us a closeup view of what the California forest fires are like. Her pictures are as amazing as they are serious in topic and while I envy her camera prowess, I don’t know if I’d want to live that close to all the action. I’m sending prayers & happy thoughts her way and hope that the disaster can be contained.

Jason has a new layout & review up. I’m happy that it was a rap band he eviscerated and not me as I don’t ever want to hear my name and the word “flaccid” used again in the same sentence. *chuckle*

Mr. Perry’s new website No Blood, No Foul is set to launch this evening. Be sure to show up for the premiere as I’m betting it will be a must-see Net event.

Ryan (The Ward) pointed out this story I somehow missed recently. In fact, he had to post it in invisible ink because Gator lawyers think they can strong arm anyone. It seems Gator Corporation doesn’t like their SPYWARE being called spyware. Apparently, they’re taking advantage of the fact that our judicial system is clueless when it comes to technology and suing anyone who dares to refuse the term “adware” when talking about their products. Well guess what?

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Gator is spyware, Gator IS spyware, Gator is SPYWARE, Gator manufactures nothing but spyware products.

Google that ya dumb bastards. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to remove Gator software in the corporate environment AND from personal computers of friends & family. You can make claims about user acknowledgement all you want, but the bottom line is Gator develops, sells and regurgitates spyware. It’s a shitty product built by a shitty company with unethical business practices. Same goes for WhenU.com the pricks.

Alrighty, lunchtime is over.
