Go Back to School with $10,000!

Symantec is sponsoring a sweepstakes contest with One (1) Grand Prize of $10,000. If you win the contest just think of all of the money you will have for Spring Break.

Symantec wants students to go back to school smarter about online safety issues such as phishing, spyware and viruses. Students can play the Norton Cyber Smackdown game to find out their cybersmarts or go head-to-head with friends to test their cybersavvy IQ - and register to win a $10,000 scholarship.

The sweepstakes winner will be selected randomly by a panel of Symantec and affiliated judges at the end of the contest.

The contest runs June 22, 2008 through September 30, 2008. Residents of the United States and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are 14 years of age and older are eligible to participate. No purchase required to participate, and the contest is subject to Official Rules.

This contest is being run in conjunction with a back to school promotion for Norton's N360v2 computer software package. They are offering a rebate program. If you purchase N360v2 you can get $30 off via a mail-in rebate.

 

 

The "State of SPAM" Report

We all hate SPAM and wish it would go away, but how bad is it? Each month, Symantec publishes its "State of Spam" report, highlighting major spam events or trends observed during the previous month.

According to Symantec more than 80 percent of all email today is spam. The report covers broad events that impact everyone, as well as those that impact a particular region of the world.

Our Youtube video for this page is the Monty Python Spam skit that some peole think started the use of "SPAM" as the term for unwanted e-mail marketing messages. Since we had this article about the SPAM report we thought we would include it .... enjoy!!
