    WhenU Receives $20M Investment
    http://www.marketwire.com/mw/release...lease_id=85306

    Investor Sees WhenU's Unique Privacy-Protecting Technology as Strong Differentiator in Exciting Contextual Advertising Market


    That's just the tag line. This article is just full of all kinds of spin gems. Not recommended reading for those with a weak stomach IMHO.

    PUKE! What a load of hog wash deserving of the liberal Awhore writer's of the year PR award. Hope the VC firm takes it in the shorts and some day both Bill Day and Ralph Terkowitz get to share a jail cell with pink curtains and satin sheets.

    I think what pisses me off the most is how stupid people can be.

    "WhenU's suite of innovative products includes adware, toolbars and deskbars and integrated contextual engines that power other software applications. WhenU's products are designed to deliver greater value and choice to consumers and enhance the online shopping experience."

    I guess those investors don't know how to read. A fool and his money..

    What is rather funny is that I read that venture capitalists were shying away from adware and to adware detection and removal firms. Now these clowns get $35 M in funding.

    An article on ZDnet states a CEO of an investment bank said "He declined to discuss WhenU's specific plans, saying the move aims to take advantage of rising interest in the desktop advertising software business." This article links "rising interest" to an article that states "Google's software principles come as interest is growing at the state and federal level in regulating and perhaps even banning adware and spyware." So investment bankers think the possibility of WhenU being outlawed makes a good investment? What am I missing? They plan to raise $50 M to buyout the owners. Hmm, sounds like a good investment to me. Wonder if any of these investment bankers were active in buying anything and everything with the word "Internet" before the dot com bust?

    I'll gladly buy some funeral wreaths from the Adwhore monitizer> 1-800-Flowers < to put on the graves of these brain dead VC idiots foolishly using other folks money. I hope the only Ad space WhenU gets is on those Balloons Terry Shivo watched endlessly for 3 years. The Adwhore PR group would spin that as effective advertising and are seeking funds to place branding sponsor Ads on body bags and grave head stones.
