Microsoft’s choice – anti-phish, or just plain prejudice

Microsoft release their latest anti-phishing toolbar, but decided the trial would only be for the US. Now, even some prominent, smart folks are calling them to task.

Isn’t a beta supposed to be tested with a subset of potential users, so kinks can be worked out before release to the masses? Would it make more sense for Microsoft to release versions of the anti-phishing tool in every language under the sun, and struggle with multitudes of reworks? Maybe they should release a version of the software for every version of IE they ever created, since someone out there must be using Internet Explorer on a Win 95 machine someplace, somewhere?

But, since I don’t use IE and don’t use Windows, maybe I should just shut the hell up, eh?
