There's another wave coming

Microsoft also tend to be a little backward in coming forward sometimes. I've mentioned the brilliant deal on Office 2007 available to many and time is running out for the most quietly announced Windows 7 cut-price offer too. Now I discover they have a Wave of their own, obviously hoping that this will prevent Google claiming the word as their own!

An attractive site (Google still have a bit to learn there) sets out in reasonably plain English what they're up to and links to various betas, trials etc. Worth dropping in from time to time.

Google goodies: Spy Doctor

Many of Google's goodies are well-hidden. Just found this good spyware and nasty things identification tool amongst their Google Pack offering. The pack includes a bundle of other stuff that you will either have or maybe not need but it is simple just to tick those that you want.

Interestingly, their SpyDoctor found a couple of items that Avast and CCleaner had missed. Hmm.
