Now this takes balls: Network Associates has a gag order built into their license agreement. If you use their software, you can’t tell anyone what you think about their product without asking them first. Keep in mind Network Associates makes security software, which is precisely the type of software you want tested and peer reviewed up the wazoo. Are they so worried about the quality of their software that it cannot stand scrutiny?

And speaking of having balls, there’s a company claiming to have a patent on the invention of hyperlinks, and they are going to court to get what’s coming to them. Yet more evidence of the U.S. Patent Office being totally and completely out of control, handing out patents for things which are neither novel or worthy of patenting.
