Submission + - Obama Fan Mashes Up Apple 1984 Ad Against Hillary

Anonymous Coward writes: "No matter who you support for president, the person or people who made this ad were very creative in this send up of the famous Apple 1984 ad. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6h3G-lMZxjo The images of the Orwellian figure are replaced with Hillary Clinton spewing platitudes about her campaign. Definitely a ground-breaking political ad for the season that will excite Obama fans and Apple lovers. It will probably send the Clinton camp into paroxysms of rage though as they are once again bested by the upstart Obama. It was originally posted on Talking Points Memo: http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/archives/012813.p hp"

Submission + - Vista Activation workarround - this time for real

An anonymous reader writes: According to article in APC Magazine pirate group Pantheon has released crack for Vista, which uses fact that big distributors (DELL, HP, IBM, etc...) have way to avoid the need for their customers to activate Vista. Using this crack you can pose to the MS as if you are one of the customers who have bought "preactivated" Vista. Real question is: a) Can MS revoke certificate used for this hack. b) Why hasn't this reached slashdot yet? :)

Submission + - FoxTrot comic jokes about RIAA

MX writes: The last Sunday drawing by Bill Amend, the creator and author of FoxTrot comics, pokes some fun at the RIAA. By teaching his Iguana how to use Bittorrent, he can one-up "Hollywood" because while they would go after "single moms, widows, grandmothers, dead people and children" they would have to insane to sue an Iguana.

The strip mentions bittorrent, hollywood, RIAA (picture), and Metallica. Quite a laugh.

Note the author does not have a link-to policy or any kind of "reuse" policy that I can find on his website. The direct link is http://images.ucomics.com/comics/ft/2007/ft070304. gif
