Anti-virus forgetfulness fubars Fox forecast
Whither the weather?
Measured and non-partisan US TV channel Fox was left looking rather silly after it forgot to renew the anti-virus subscription on an on-air PC.
Attempts to switch to a weather forecast were interrupted after the PC concerned displayed a prominent warning that its Norton AntiVirus had expired. The presenter concerned didn't miss a beat in describing a weather front over New Jersey, and clicked on a dialogue box to remove the message.
Still, viewers couldn't have failed to notice the prominent red-bordered message.
A video clip of the amusing snafu can be found on the Fail Blog here. ®
