Microsoft says get 'em off

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

In yet another bizarre attempt to make the Internet fab, groovy and interesting, Microsoft's fast-shrinking MSN has located four losers who are to spend 100 hours locked in a room with no human contact and no food. Oh, and they have to be naked too. While this might make some kind of publicity sense for nubile 20-year-old actresses, it is perhaps less appetising when one of the participants is a 67-year-old retired man. The experiment is aimed at seeing if the naked surfers can survive by ordering take out pizzas and Jolt Cola via the Web, while perhaps trying to find more lucrative employment at the same time (as Pizza delivery persons?) Of course the whole scam could backfire badly if MSN's tragic reliability rate comes into play -- what price four naked skeletons, starved to death while trying to connect to The Microsoft Network? ®
