Net Detective Can't Find It's Own Happy Customers
from the sounds-useless dept
Assuming you spend enough time on the internet, you've probably come across (and ignored) hundreds, if not thousands, of ads for Net Detective. The software is often advertised via spam and pop-ups as a way to track down information "on anyone!!!". Tech columnist Mike Wendland decided to give the product a shot, and discovered what you probably already knew: it's a complete waste of money. In fact, the software can't even find any information on the people they quote as its "happy customers." About the only info it could find on anyone was the exact same info that's available for free in various online phone directories. For more detailed info, it just points people to the websites of free databases.
