+ - Escort agency launches virgin service for geeks

Submitted by 6Yankee
6Yankee writes: A Dutch escort agency is offering a "virgin service" — and most of the customers work in IT. Says boss Zoe Vialet: "They are very sweet but are afraid of seeking contact with other people. They mean it very well but are very scared."

+ - British supermarket to offer own-brand software

Submitted by 6Yankee
6Yankee writes: BBC News is reporting that supermarket giant Tesco is to start selling own-brand PC software. From the article:

"Tesco said it would offer six packages, including office software, security systems and a photo editing tool. Britain's biggest retailer said each title would cost less than £20, challenging what it described as the current 'high' price of software."

No word as to whether the Tesco office products are compatible with the Microsoft ones. But when people discover that they don't need to break the law to the Microsoft tax, will they opt for a legal, far cheaper, alternative? What does this mean for projects like OpenOffice — a harder sell, or increased interest?
