I just recommendated Idea to a friend of mine and he loves it. But then he told me that he noticed that Idea is sending something out through his firewall. - I don't think Idea is anything close to a spyware but it will be nice to know what is going on behind the scene with this "sending information out without explict acknowledgement".
Does anyone have the answer? BTW, it is not because of the "check for update" feature.
