Nowadays I tend to rely on Google for 99% of my website finding, rather than manually typing stuff into the address bar. Especially as in Vista I can just highlight a bit of text or a website name or whatever and up pops a little Arrow box and I right click and "Search with Google". Whatever I'm looking for pops up in another Tab and that's that.
Because it's all been made so quick and easy I now realise I've become almost entirely dependant on Google for my online navigation. I probably use it a hundred times a day. I've even been known to tell novice PC users that Google is the main thing that's made the Internet into a really useful tool (well that and my huge Favorites folder which has been growing and migrating from one PC to the next one for over 12 years now. I lost it once in system crash and still have nightmares about that LOL)
Convenience and laziness has put me almost entirely in their 'capable' hands. I'm now beginning to wonder if that's wise. It's a heck of a tool for controlling where people go and what they can, or can't see.

Interesting. It's coming up the same for me now. I do have a Mac, so if there was the threat of malware, I wouldn't get hit by it.
I don't know if I fully buy into the Cass Sunstein story or not, but it seems to me many of our "conspiracy brothers" out there are being hit hard. I think this is the second or third time I've heard of an attack mentioned on conspiracy sites. We know that they were going after Pirate Bay and Demonoid too, but for different reasons. They can tear down websites, but what these idiots can't do is stop the free flow of information. I only wish we could get some concrete evidence on these guys. Maybe it's time to start calling in favors from all of my old hacker buddies.
Peace be with you.
