More progress being made on the anti-spyware front: http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1788844,00.asp. Industry players are banding together to try and define this.
I'm not sure that this is a good idea -- while I agree that the term "spyware" has unfortunate connotations to anyone branded as such, creating a specific definition just seems to me to open the door to firms trying to work around the definition while achieving the same effect.
Although it had a terrible acronym, I really thought that "potentially unwanted software" captured the category in a nutshell.
Very nice blog!
