2 Replies to “Ads in TSA Bins”

  1. I had the misfortune of having to travel for work and the TSA bins at the Nashville airport had McAfee antivirus ads in them. Haven’t seen them in any other airports but I’ll be looking for them next time I’m required to travel simply so that I can keep myself fed, clothed, and sheltered.

    Antivirus software has some of the most obnoxious advertising I’ve seen, it’s a combination of making your feel fearful and yet safe and secure at the same time if you just buy their product. My personal experience has been that I don’t use any and never had a problem but when I’ve tried using A/V software my computer was noticeably slower. I wonder how many resources are wasted every year on AV software.

  2. (It does seem to be mostly focused around the ignorant downloading “free porn” or pirated music. I’ve regularly used maybe 17 computers in different states in the past 5 years, and never had a virus problem, but I worked with a fool man whose porn habits managed to give him regular viruses on some of those same computers, and prompted the “need” for security software.)

    Great, perfect observation Mr. Dawson.
