An anonymous reader writes: Ocean Marketing, in what may go down in history as the worst PR move ever, has botched a situation following the posting of an email thread between Paul Christoforo, head of the PR firm and a customer known only as Dave on Penny Arcade early this morning. The debacle, which has incensed a majority of internet outlets, has only been exacerbated by the increasing lack of support Christoforo claimed to have in the condescending emails exchanged between initially Dave, and later on Penny Arcade and PAX cofounder Mike Kraulik.

Submission + - Office Workers Clueless About IT in General (net-security.org)

Orome1 writes: Many office workers are not as tech or security aware as they could be, according to a new survey. When asked what cloud computing meant, a quarter thought it was a data centre in the sky. A fifth thought it was something that Microsoft advertises, 10% global warming caused by overheating computers and 10% guessed it was a trendy club. When asked what Android is, a third said a new science fiction movie, 10% a new robot invention and 17% said it was Darth Vader’s father! Only 4 out of 10 people correctly said it was an operating system for mobile phones.
