Cow Utter HR Interview

Could you just imagine this..

 

Another Googler did, in fact, tell me once about answering interview questions as Sergey, attired in a full-size cow suit, absentmindedly stroked his rubber udder. In retrospect, a roller hockey getup seems fairly formal by Google standards.

F-Secure Warned Sony BMG of RootKit

Once again those awesome people at F-Secure are showing why they are gaining momentum in the AV industry.

It appears they warned Sony BMG of the rootkit their CD's were inflicting on people on October 4th.

"If [Sony] had woken up and smelled the coffee when we told them there was a problem, they could have avoided this trouble,"

Quote from Mikko H. Hypponen

One thing to note is that he loves video games. Long Live Mame.

Best Buy xbox 360 sales tactics

Yet another example of a company trying to soak a customer for more money.

I really feel sorry for the young kid who saved $400.00 and was told that Best Buy couldn't sell him one.

Their new motto "The price is the price" Boycott Best Buy
