    Good work! But was that necessary?

    Hello Mike,

    What about the 32bit only for now message on the website? Many more people are making use of 64bit now. Especially with Win7....

    Take ya pick; :p

    monster
    1. An imaginary creature usually having various human and animal parts
    2. Someone or something that is abnormally large and powerful
    3. A person or animal that is markedly unusual or deformed
    4. A cruel wicked and inhuman person


    If you've ever used norton, perhaps all apply in some way. :cool:

    Glad to see V4 is out, I like the new price, Mike, it's much more in line with what I like to pay for a firewall.

    Hi Edwin,

    Long time no type. I will be going to Win7 during the next few weeks, and as soon as we get our x64 version in Beta (early 2010) I'll be going over to 64bit myself.

    Cheers

    Mike

    Thanks Cruxx.

    Some people are telling us we should charge a premium price, others are telling us we were too expensive. Pricing is really hard :(

    Eventually, we decided to give the new lower pricing a try and we'll see what happens, and who is right :)


    Mike

    I was one of those who were considering the previous price a bit high. I'm glad there is a change to this. I feel now much more comfortable to buy some more licenses.

    I wish you better financial results with the new price sceme.

    Great company + great product. A combination that is rare these last years. My congratulations.

    It was a good step to lower the prices! :thumb:
    As soon as you release a stable 64-bit version and actual prices i will go for a family licence!

    Hello MikeNash,
    that sounds promising because I'm sure you won't use a too crippled HIPS.
    But you can't hook all functions in kernel mode like on x32 without patchguard. How good you think your HIPS will be on x64? :)

    I think the new pricing is much more fair. And I like the new website! It looks a lot better and is easier to navigate.

    All in all, great work, and congratulations on Win7 support. You run a great company with great support, and an excellent product :thumb: :) .

    OA is a good product with excellent HIPS. What stops it from being great is its firewall component, the implementation and features of which lag significantly behind OP and CIS. That's what Tall Emu ought to focus their efforts on IMO.

    Well ... why does Online Armor lag behind CIS and OP? You can't leave it hanging with that teaser.

    I do use Online Armor, but I am not being a jackass. Just wondered why you think Online Armor is lagging?

    I have one question: What does the transparent blocking feature in the paid version do?

    How do you know about the "firewall component"? Any proof?
    Nobody know's this fact, only can go by what is advertised.

    I have been a beta tester of OA since its early versions. The several recent v4 beta releases are running smoothly on my Vista and Win7 PCs. OA requires a lot less user-intervention and tuning in normal usage when compared with my other HIPS like MD or RTD. IMHO, I think it is a great product for the average Joe user.

    Cheers.

    That doesn't sound detailed but great too :)
    I hope you will try to exhaust all possibilities and I'm sure there's possible a lot.
    I can't hear that lies anymore that patchguard would prevent really powerful proactive defense. If you summarized all strengths of the x64 HIPSes of Kaspersky, Outpost and Comodo you would have a very great HIPS on x64 (My personal opinion based on leaktest results like of SSTS).
    I hope OA will be that HIPS, on x32 you already proved that you can provide ~the best HIPS protection by also trying to pass as many leaktests as possible.

    If the x64 will be good I'll buy a licence for sure.
