Microsoft is bailing on LiveSpaces and sending blogs to WordPress
"Over a six month period, beginning today, Windows Live Spaces users will have the option to move their blogs to WordPress.com."

Interesting indeed!

Maybe they are going to buy up Wordpress?

Today is “Ask a Stupid Question Day”

No, really, it is.  Ask a Stupid Question Day
http://www.gone-ta-pott.com/national_ask_a_stupid_question_day.html
Here are some examples of stupid questions:

    * Why does your gynecologist leave the room when you undress?
    * Why can’t woman put their mascara on with their mouth closed?
    * Why is it called alcoholics anonymous when the first thing you do is stand up and say
      “Hi, my name’s Bob. I’m an alcoholic”?
    * If you mated a Bulldog with a Shitsu would you get a Bullshit?
    * Why are they called stairs inside but steps outside?
    * Why is there a light in the fridge but not in the freezer?
    * Who was the first person to look at a cow and say “I think I’ll squeeze these dangly things here and drink what comes out”?
    * Why does Goofy stand on two legs when Pluto remains on four? They’re both dogs.
    * Why is a person who handles money called a broker?
    * If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?
    * If a man is walking in a forest and no women is there to hear him is he still wrong?
    * Why is it that when someone tells you that there’s billions of stars in the universe, you believe them. But if they tell you there’s wet paint somewhere you have to touch it?
    * Why do you call it an asteroid when its outside the hemisphere, yet call it hemorrhoid when its in your ass?
    * Who was the first person to go up to a chicken and say, “I’m going to eat the first thing this chicken poops?

Social networking protection? Did they find a way to prevent ID-10-T errors?  ;D
...on a more serious note, isn't this kind of thing illegal unless they have evidence to back it up?

No wonder it rhymes with trickery and mockery.

Why?
Because Avira performed bad in some of them? Or because the winner is you-know-who?
Do you suspect it is a paid test?

no, it's fair result about Avira, but about other vendors... I don't know! I'm not expert
