MS Passport

Microsoft settled a dispute with the government over its Passport identification service today. Read about it.

Chief among the issues the software giant was chastised for were deceptive claims about the security offered by Passport and tracking of user’s navigation of the web.

It’s unfortunate that Microsoft must be spanked every time it does something inappropriate. Why don’t they simply offer a secure, private service?
