I know what your thinking, so what? Microsoft already has one, its not the best but not the worst.
This one is different:
Micro$oft is gearing up to offer Windows users a free real-time antivirus protection. Code name Morro, the antivirus product will be a hosted
service. Morro works by routing all users Internet traffic to a Micro$oft datacenter, where the application will process the traffic and identify and
block malware in real-time, by examining all of the rerouted traffic.
(please forgive me, as while I've been a member since around launch on different screen names, Ive never really posted so, if I am doing it in
correctly, I apologize.)
So, basically, what I'm getting out of this article, is that Micro$oft (I'm an apple zealot, so it HAS to be done) is creating a way to monitor your
internet usage, and along the way they can use the data they collect to sell to other corporations, and give it to governmental departments that would
find it very useful for their "list" basically, the end of privacy on the internet.
I am aware that technically, the internet is NOT anonymous, its just logistically un-feasable to trace every persons IP adress.
