Article: Questions arise on PC World Security Suite Review

Interesting look at a questionable review..

Questions arise on PC World tests, By Brian Livingston
A sweeping review of 10 security suites published in a major computer magazine last month featured some very unlikely rankings for this crucial category of products. After examining the evidence, I've found that some material facts were omitted from the article, rendering its ratings useless.
The cover of the July 2006 PC World Magazine promised a review of security suites that would give readers "total protection against spyware, hackers & spam." Inside the magazine, a lengthy article summarized extensive test results by AV-Test.org, a respected antivirus research group based in Magdeburg, Germany. The magazine's product rankings, however, seemed inexplicable.

Wasn't PC World the same people that rated AOL the #1 worst technology product of all time? and wasn't zip drives on that list too? along with some other great things?

They totally lost their credibility with that ranking list, in my opinion.
