Nature has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
Fox News is my favorite! Whenever I want to be told what to think anyways. Biass is different from stating the obvious, and Symantec is saying the given: that this new microsoft is just as insecure as the previous versions. With time anything is vunerable and can be minipulated. Rupert Murdok and co. are biass, ignorant conjurers of truth that feed simple minds feelings of understanding and patriotism...

never liked Symantec anyway and on Vista - don't really care for all it's fluffy Aero stuff, as long as it doesn't have any network issues/bugs

i agree somewhat that dog food should be their next line of work, after all they've made a dogs dinner of reporting a flaw in some Beta software

I agree, tatics like this Shouldn't be part of a company's strategy, but this is the 21st century and they're here to stay. As someone over in the discussion on AMD=ATI said, "Companies go broke by working hard". Anymore working hard and making good products is not a winning strategy. Companies succeed by convincing increasingly uncomprehending consumers that their product is better regardless of the facts. In this market an ounce of hype is better than a pound of good technology and, sadly, I don't see it changing anytime soon

It is sad, that businesses will prey on the many ignorant people out there who have more money than sense.

Makes you wonder how it will end if it ever will.

I dont think it ever will, like Cthippo says, these are the tactics of the 21st century. And to many corporations ingorant people = $$$ and are fair game! I must admit in the last few days i've lost an enormous amount of respect for symantec.

Symantec are the new microsoft though tbh, buying up everything that looks decent, getting the utter noobs to buy crappy bloated software that doesn't work well just beause of comparatively heavy marketing. It does't surprise me at all that they're playing dirty. Only real thing I'm sad about is that they make just about the best virus definitions in existance, but I'm happy to miss a few percent more viruses in exchange for giving my money to a less bad company.

How about not giving any money to any company and go for a free antivirus alternative ?

shame. maybe microsoft should start telling people about the flaws found in syamantec software. Really a lot of people dont like their software but they do really do the best virus def`s shame their software is so much more resource hungry. Corp version is much better as well

I hate all symantec/Norton software with a passion.
The very definition of bloatware IMO.

And that's the kind of blinkered thinking that allows this sort of thing (and Fox) to exist. "A" can't be slightly better than "B", "A" must be the best thing since sliced bread and "B" absolute scum.

It's only frigging software; what do you think causes most road accidents, car faults or motorist faults?
