If you buy a car from a car dealer, do they pay for you to pass your driving test?
If you buy a cooker from a showroom, do they make sure you can cook?
You're right of course. People "should" be educated about internet viruses. But who does it? The computer manufacturer? The Internet Service Provider? Or you?
Why I support: Yahoo.com and not FreeWare Everywhere!
We all need to do one thing; e-mail your favorite web service, like Yahoo, MSN, AOL or Google and tell them what you want in a webbrowser. Yahoo did it first, but AOL subscribers also get FREE virus scan! Help me tell these folks the truth about the web. If I pay for a DSL connection from lets say, Acme Cable company, said company should provide me with EVERYTHING I need to be secure and for ONE PRICE PLEEEEEAAASSSSEEEEE!!!!!!!
My service provider said, Quote "We are not a utility, but a convienience." They are correct! they are a convienient way to enjoy media! An altrenative to books or television. Well, guess what; If I buy a book or a television, I pay once or I pay one monthly fee for the WHOLE convienience.
THe great Web should be the same! We need to yell this out to everyone involved, because we the consumer, are being duped and robbed! I should not have to pay a second time for Anti-virus software! A third time for a movie player or any other junk it should come with my media connection! How would everyone feel about paying an extra dollar on your cable bill, just so you could watch Bloomberg TV or the news?
