Microsoft Finally Gets Something Right

Just yesterday Microsoft released an anti spyware program dubbed “AntiSpyware”… yeah. Anyhow after aquiring Giant Company Software Inc. Microsoft quickly went into action to get this program in beta. Microsoft is also going to release a free virus scan program next Tuesday. The anti spyware program is great in my tests, but even more so, if Microsoft releases a FREE virus scan program, there should be no unprotected computer. I do trust that Microsoft’s anti virus software, and spyware removal tools will be up to par if not better. They are under a close watch and will be criticized even more if these tools don’t do the trick.

If you are without a virus scan program, and a spyware removal program, you are basically an idiot that doesn’t deserve to live in this authors opinion. This is Microsoft’s way of saying, “yeah, Windows is prone to problems, but I think we’re going to start helping with that”… or something.

You can download the anti spyware program here. http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx

Also, it has an active dectection unlike Ad-Aware, so it should remove spyware immediately. Yeah, I know… Microsoft’s evil, but this lessens their evilness… just a little bit.

Flickr

I’ve known about this site for a while, but I recently looked in depth at the photo hosting site Flickr.com . The site features several different functions. An organizer, a labeling and comment system and much much more. If you are all about showing your digital photos online, I seriously recommend you give these guys the look over. They offer free accounts with 10 MB of upload storage a month. I’m thinking about investing in a paid account. They offer several features to blog your pictures as well including Livejournal, Blogger, and others. Check out my journal and you’ll see a display of 10 random photos. The also have cool widgets like this:

And for anyone who uses Blogger, you can use Picasa’s Hello Bloggerbot to upload an unlimited amount of photos to your blog. 2004 has been quite a year in the development of the coolness of the Internet. If you have any questions let me know. It would be nice to see other peoples photos.
