    Hot on the heels of another fan-based website (albeit design for the purpose) buying controlling interest in a soccer/football team, where should we spend our money?

    I think the most interesting thing about this is that, unlike the "buy me a <blank>" sites where the recipient makes all decisions, the contributors will have the power to all vote on the decisions and actions of the team.

    I hope it works out, as this seems more involved than the GB Packers ownership system. I for one, will be rooting for Ebbsfleet United.

    We should buy a controlling interest in Norton now. When the crap hits the fan and some evildoer eventually releases something that kills all our Macs, millions of inexperienced users will go to Norton first.

    By then we'll have turned it into something that's actually useful. ;)

    Remember when I had that charity idea, where we could make some sort of contribution to a cause that's worth caring about?


    Soooooooo.........lets give our money to Norton......for an OS that still doesn't have a virus problem.

    That's an awfully bold statement to make... perhaps this event will occur right after we successfully complete the MacRumors Perpetual Motion Machine... :cool:

    Perpetual motion is more likely than Norton not sucking anymore. :p

    But, see, if we buy controlling interest, we can either a) fix it, or b) make it disappear. Both are worthy solutions.

    Just as a heads up, we need a little over 313.5m contributors. I don't know how close we are, but I think we can do it!

    A perpetual motion machine which gets faster is more likely than Norton not sucking anymore. :cool:

    I think Doctor Q should make note of this and include it as a headline for the next April Fool's Day MacRumors page. ;)

    Actually I quite like Norton, especially Norton System Works on Windows. I wish more people would use it.












    You see, I get paid $89 per machine to clean it off after the owner installs it and everything stops working correctly. :D My method for cleaning it? Wipe and reinstall the OS. Easy money!

    Option B doesn't seem like it has a good ROI....

    I would think it a small sacrifice to end the bane that is Norton.

    I suppose we could save some cash and form a new company that would buy NAV from SYMN. That'd be much more affordable.
