Microsoft to Buy Gator Maker? - The New York Times and other sources are reporting that Microsoft has been in talks to acquire Claria, the adware company that's probably best known for its Gator software, which gives you an electronic wallet but also displays ads based on your surfing habits. Claria is also behind DashBar, Precision Time, SearchScout, Date Manager, and other applications that display advertising on your system.

Microslut makes a spware removal tool that's supposed to be "a standard" part of windows. This was controversial enough. But let's see here. MS then buys one of the most well known companies for spy/adware. How do we keep this from being a conflict of interest? Not block MS Gator/etc because since MS makes your operating system, you can obviously trust them with your private information. Talk about a way to corner yet another part of the computer market.
