Ah hadn't seen this post (wasn't sure whether it should be mentioned), just emailed phillip about it :P

First noticed it earlier today but had so many tabs open, I just put it down to one of those annoying adverts.

Dosn't quite have the same effect when your not running windows :)

The referenced Washington Post, slashdot, and maximumpc articles were parodies.
