Wayne Porter, blogging at ReveNews, is reporting on speculation that 180solutions, the infamous adware company that's been under fire by the CDT (Center for Democracy and Technololgy) and anti-spyware groups for at least 2 years, has been cleaning house, as in moving out of their offices in Bellevue, Washington.

I just received an e-mail heads up from Pesach Lattin that 180 Solutions, the company I always loved to report on, was "cleaning house". By cleaning house I do believe that Pesach meant shutting down- we will see if this is true.

The article at Adotas says:

ADOTAS has learned that adware company 180Solutions has cleaned out its Bellevue, MA headquarters and a source close to the company tells us its other offices are to follow. The company, which as of late has lost clients like AzoogleAds and has been under fire with a formal complaint by the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT), has, according to the source, left their offices completely empty save a maid service which the company apparently hired to “clean up their act”.

Before you get too excited, read on where an unnamed 180 executive says this might be “just a clever guerilla PR tactic”. 

April Fools? Darn!

Another ReveNews blogger, Jimmy Daniels, posted an interview with a former 180 employee. The ex-employee gives some fascinating insight into the company and what it was like to work there.
