Default Gator not SpyWare?

Oct. 22 — In an effort to improve its corporate reputation, adware company Gator has launched a legal offensive to divorce its name from the hated term “spyware”— and so far its strategy is paying off.

Yeah, I hate the pop-upos too. But I can deal with them more than I can Spyware.

If I want a better mortgage rate, ot to find out what my old classmates are up to or cheap plane tickets, I'll search for it myself!!
