guess I'll just quote what Poof said from neowin.

Yay! So now instead of sending my packets through my ISP I can use a third-party service who can sniff my packets.

Finally, my privacy issues are resolved!

All VPNs based in the US seem sort of pointless to me. I have no desire to be persecuted for the things i download. If a US-based company *cough* MPAA *cough* asks for my IP address, Spotflux would comply, as stated in their privacy policy. My only wish is a free VPN located outside of US jurisdiction that doesn't log any of my activities that additionally provides some quality (1mb/s download?) =[

Tools like this one may have some use to those in countries

that practice severe censorship.

However, I do object when they advertise as "Protect your privacy".

The object of this type of software is to mask your physical location,

not protect your privacy.

Unless you own your own servers and Internet backbone your footprint

is stored somewhere. This software just makes it more confusing for you

to be located....more confusing not impossible. Seems to me that if I saw

weird addresses all of a sudden popping up on backbones I monitor, I

would probably look into it. Everyone has a job to do, and bots and crawlers make that job

so much easier when weird gets involved. ;)
