    Question Which Internet are they reffering to?
    Zango now bills itself as an online media company whose products are critical to the Internet.

    I was at a marketing get together here in Seattle for a group of tech companies. Some poor schlep from Zango was there. I had to resist kicking him haphazardly. Zango has always been good at spin and unfortunately people's memories are very short.

    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    Either satire or ignorance. Microsoft does not own Zango.

    It was meant facetiously. I know MS didn't buy them. Sigh.

    Sigh again.

    Zango getting denied in court is always a good thing.

    Same story, just grabbed some of it from it's link:
    http://www.sourcewire.com/releases/r...=31803&hilite=

    PC Tools wins fight against Zango
    Hurray!!!!

    “This result represents success for anti-spyware vendors and, most importantly a win for the public’s right to choose what software is allowed to be installed on their computers,” said Simon Clausen, Chief Executive of PC Tools. “We see this ruling as sending a strong message to other adware companies who may be tempted to bully anti-spyware makers into re-rating or removing their products from their database of malicious programs,” says Clausen.
    I love it!!!

    In denying Zango’s application US District Judge John C. Coughenour in Washington, Seattle held that on the issue of alleged unfair or deceptive conduct by PC Tools: “The Court finds it unlikely that Plaintiff (Zango) will be able to prove that Defendant’s software was unfair or deceptive given that users knowingly download its (PC Tools') software to avoid potential malware”.
    I'll take 3 scoops of that, in a sugar cone please.

    His Honour also added that in relation to Zango’s allegations of tortious interference, trade libel or violations of the Washington Consumers Protection Act that: “The court finds that Plaintiff (Zango) is unlikely to prevail on the merits of any of these three claims.” In delivering his views on PC Tools’ methods of classifying Zango products for its popular Spyware Doctor program His Honour added that: “Its (PC Tools’) classification is not unreasonable given Zango’s past conduct and in light of other companies’ similar classification of the plaintiff’s software”.
    Dig that stuff I bolded. We got a judge that has had a computer get all f'd up with Zango. Yeah!!!
