I suppose Microsoft has finally accepted the fact that they can’t create great software and it’s costing them a lot of money. I guess the only logical solution is that Microsoft come out with another product that we pay for to help manage the problems that they created in the first place.

This, my good friends, is a total conflict of interest. I suppose it’s in tandem with our leaders in Washington drafting bills to to fight corruption. The absolute concern here is that Microsoft could really profit by leaving security loops and problems in its own software that would take other Antivirus and Security developers time to find. That puts Microsoft at the top of the heap for this service. It could smite the competition and be another lucrative move for Microsoft.

Wow. Is ANYONE watching this unfold? Anyone?

    This reminds me of the travelling vacuum salesmen that dumps a bag of gunk on your carpet, so you’re obligated to see a demo.

    Way to go Micro$oft! You now rank among the leagues of ’30s Chicago gansters fleecing the public for “protection money” – or else, they might get broken Windows.
