Anti-virus forgetfulness fubars Fox forecast


@ Michael C

Not only does that look like the retail version of Norton, it looks to be either NAV 2001 to 2005.

Mine's the one with the NOD32 box in it.

@That popping sound you hear

Mine's the expensive bottle of witch's brew nicked from her office. I can go back to being an American Anglophile now

Twitter worm author gets security job


Good news for Whacky Jacqui!

If this joker can get a security job for writing a worm, I reckon it'd be a cakewalk for her to become Prime Minister and also get a Dame Grand Cross too!

Silicon Valley's biggest winners and losers in 2008

See what happened

When you dropped Norton Utilities off your main product line to force people to use Norton ShitstormWorks 2003, Symantec?

Mine's the one with the yellow and white box with the Swiss Army knife on the front.

Symantec plans layoffs as sales fall short

Thumb Down

We want the OLD Norton back!

I ditched NAV and Norton Internet (In)Security about a couple years or so and stuck to only using Norton Utilities (version 2002 mind you). Last decent Norton around till someone got the idea to bugger NU by putting it so that the only way you can use it anymore is through Norton SystemWorks (aka Norton Clusterf**k). Since then, I've been a happy happy avast! user and I've been taking a lot of complaints from friends about the new Norton line.

So with no further ado, up yours Symantec!

Ambulance Service not patient enough for Vista


Why bother?

[quote]It makes sense. Why bother upgrading to Vista if XP does what you want it to do? Espeially if Vista causes compatibility issues.[/quote]

I believe I said something to this effect when XP came around and I was (and still am on all machines) running Windows 98 SE.

UK asks to buy next-gen spy planes from US


Just get some damn UAVs

Next-gen spy planes? Predator series and its variants. Enough said. Or maybe the MoD can stop whining and use their spy sats for something useful for a change, instead of the office flyover boob-pool.

Relax. When C&C Red Alert 3 comes out, SKYNET'll be having fun hijacking the nuclear weapon subroutines or playing endless games of DEFCON.
