Format C:, ok, ok, ok!

Well, amusingly enough my old not-very-funny joke about WAV file viruses has finally come to pass, thanks to Vista's voice control. Here is the link to a slashdot article about it. Seems that people using voice control who navigate to a website with audio can get "hijacked". Even a bear of very little brain like me forsaw that decades ago.

It's sad when the truth is just as dumb as some CS dork's jokes.

(The thing is, Mac has had voice control for a very long time. I wonder if it's succeptible to the same effect, or if they do something cute like subtract the sound being played from the mic signal, or suppress voice control while audio is playing. I guess I should try it out when I get home.)
