Microsoft Lied About Browser Downloads

from the proud-of-their-dishonesty dept

Microsoft admitted today that they lied about download figures for IE 4.0 when it came out. Well, okay, they didn’t lie, but they certainly stretched the truth more than just a little bit. This is fairly typical Microsoft, and then they wonder why everyone mistrusts them.

Hi Mike,

I’m not sure if you are still around, or how old this site is for that matter but I wanted to ask you is it still feasible to hack someone’s hotmail password? I just read some article, very old however, that it used to be possible to find someone’s email password through using javascript. What is your take on this? I would really like to know if it is at all possible.
