It wasn't a contest so much as a challenge for beard growth.

Inspired by the national Swedish hockey team tradition of not shaving during the playoffs leading up to the world championships, some of our guys decided a couple of weeks before launch to let the hair grow - and here are the results. They also added a 'funky' hair day the day after launch, and then a fully clean shaven day on Friday.

Another week -and another award for Ad-Aware!

We've just received word from the team at Forte that, following testing and a review of users ratings, Ad-Aware 2007 Free has received their highest award - 5 out of 5 stars!

The changes to the detection and removal engine will be noticeable to long-time Ad-Aware users, with Lavasoft touting faster scan times and better rootkit detection.

Ad-Aware 2008 looks a lot like the 2007 version of the program, but with a freshened-up interface and somewhat more intuitive controls in a few places. Most of the changes, however, are found under the hood, and they are significant.

Our CEO, Jason King, is currently at the exclusive Google Zeitgeist Europe '08 conference in London where "Europe's most forward-thinking innovators and visionaries congregate to share perspectives on trends shaping our world." As opportunity would have it, Jason also spoke briefly on behalf of the CSIA with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who arrived at the event this morning under a thick security blanket. If we can get ahold of that news clip, be sure that we'll be posting it here on the site.
