The flag of the United Kingdom, the Union Jack, is a superposition of the flags of Saint George (for England), Saint Andrew (for Scotland) and Saint Patrick (for Ireland). This superposition is quite intricate, and often drawn incorrectly. So how do you draw the Union Jack correctly?
As much as I like to poke fun at Apple, even I feel sorry for them sometimes. I wonder how many times they get sued each year?
According to the suit, filed in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California in San Jose, Apple is deceiving consumers by concealing that the new 20-inch iMac monitors are inferior to the previous generation's and those of the new 24-inch iMac. In addition, the monitors are incapable of displaying "millions of colors," despite Apple's marketing claims.
Dell announced today that it will close its desktop manufacturing facility in Austin, Texas as part of an overall plan to save three billion dollars over the next three years. All total, the company will cut almost nine thousand jobs.
Dell Inc. is also reaffirming its plan -- announced last year -- to cut at least 8,800 jobs, or about 10 percent of its work force. In the last nine months of fiscal 2008, the Round Rock, Texas-based company cut 3,200 jobs. The company plans a broad range of cost cuts in design, manufacturing and logistics, materials and operating expenses to stay competitive.
Eying a cool new MacBook for college (or for your kid at college)? According to a survey cited by Morgan Stanley, roughly 40% or college students say that their next computer purchase will be a Mac. This will result in a higher market share for Apple in the future.
The basic argument here is that students who are used to Apple products grow up, get jobs, and make money. They will then buy more Macs, and will also make Apple products more "mainstream" and become more common in the workforce. Huberty offers Linux as an analog, suggesting that as Linux-savvy students got jobs and then Linux saw large market share gains.
What does Microsoft and Hello Kitty have in common? They both have products packaged in hot pink. As a special promotion for the Japanese market, an upgrade version of Windows Vista Home Premium is bundled with a year’s subscription of Windows Live OneCare and a copy of a Vista tips and tricks book. If that deal isn’t sweet enough, then you better know it comes in a pink box with little flower petals plastered all over. Imagine checking out of the electronic store with a copy of Crysis in one hand, and this in the other.
The Associate Press is reporting on Adobe’s announcement of a new version of Photoshop that is available for free online. Photoshop Express will be completely web based so you should be able to use it on any computer, on any operating system and browser.
Adobe Systems Inc. says it hopes to boost its name recognition among a new generation of consumers who edit, store and share photos online. While Photoshop is designed for trained professionals, Adobe says Photoshop Express, which it launched in a "beta" test version, is easier to learn. User comments will be taken into account for future upgrades.
Wired has a list of their top 10 April Fool’s Day pranks submitted by readers. Good stuff here.
People are too reliant on some common programs that help them cheat, such as the Autocorrect feature in MS Office. Capitalize on their laziness by adding a few of your favorite "alternative" spellings. Common words like "about" or "together" work well. Even better, try subtly adjusting the spelling of your victim's name. It's so hard-wired into most people's fingers, they hardly look at it.
Holy cow, a hacker took total control of a MacBook Air in two minutes flat and earned a buttload of cash for doing so. Apple fans need not worry, the company is coming together to make a new “I’m a Mac” ad to remedy the situation.
Of note, contestants could only use software that came pre-loaded on the OS, so obviously it was Safari that fell victim here. Nevertheless, he was forced to sign a nondisclosure agreement that'll keep him quiet until "TippingPoint can notify the vendor," but at least he'll have $10,000 and a new laptop to cuddle with during his silent spell.

As with any publicly accessible network, it was just a matter of time before the PlayStation Network was hacked. It happens to banks all the time, Sony shouldn’t feel too bad.
Sony said the security breach occurred at the PlayStation Store, a content download service of the network. "Although unlikely, it is possible that the passwords of a small percentage of PlayStation Network users may have been changed through unauthorized access," the company said.
A new version of OpenOffice is available. There are a handful of updates and performance improvements in this update along with a few bug fixes. OpenOffice is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
Nordic Hardware has pictures of the ASUS EAH3850 Trinity triple GPU video card. The card uses a cool heat pipe / water cooling combo and, as you can imagine, is pretty damn beefy. Here are a few pics from thier website:
Winner of the Popular Science Best of What's New award, this is the device that stores up to 160 electronic books and displays them on a patented screen that replicates the contrast of black ink on light-gray paper, resulting in high-contrast and a reading experience that is similar to a page in an actual book.
The 6" screen uses E-Ink® technology, an award-winning electronic paper that reflects light like ordinary loose-leaf and is capable of maintaining displayed text without drawing electricity. Unlike typical backlit LCDs, the screen will not cause eye fatigue and it is visible in direct sunlight, allowing for convenient use outdoors.
About the size of a paperback, but less than 1/2" thick, the unit only draws power when you press the page turn buttons, ensuring up to 7,500 page turns on a single charge, enough to read The Da Vinci Code 16 times before recharging is required. The device connects to a PC for purchasing and downloading electronic books from an online store with 20,000 titles, or digital texts can be uploaded using a memory card.
The unit has an integrated music player that is compatible with unencrypted MP3 and AAC formats, and it supports Word documents, Adobe PDFs, and JPEGs.
This 3/4-scale six-string electric guitar connects to your iPod® or other MP3 player and can play your music from its built-in battery-powered 4" speaker, allowing you to play along untethered to an amplifier.
The 21-fret guitar has a solid basswood body, maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard for optimal tone generation; a truss rod allows you to adjust string action for easier chording.
It employs precision machine heads and a single-coil pickup, has a volume control knob, and a standard 1/4" output that allows it to be plugged into a standard amplifier, if desired. Includes guitar strap, digital tuner, cables, plectrum, and carrying case.
This is the portable DVD player that integrates with 5th Generation video iPod®s, allowing you to watch iPod® videos on a 8 1/2", 16:9 widescreen LCD that is 2 3/4 times larger than the iPod®s screen. Using active matrix technology, the LCD can redraw images faster than typical LCD monitors, resulting in a sharper, more detailed resolution.
An iPod® slides into the front of the video player and is protected by a clear plastic cover, and the dual headphone jacks allow two people to use the video player without disturbing fellow travelers. The device has an AV port for output to a television, charges an iPod® while in use, and has an on-screen menu display for quick set up. Rechargeable battery allows three hours of continuous DVD playback on a five-hour charge; four hours of iPod® video playback.
This cordless insect vacuum quickly captures bugs from up to 2' away. Flies, bees spiders and other insects are suctioned by a 22,400 rpm motor, sending the insect through a one-way valve in the extension tube to an electric grid in the handle that instantly kills the pest.
The extension tube removes to place dead bugs in the garbage, shutting off the electric grid in the process to protect curious fingers from electrical shocks or burns.
Without the use of toxic chemicals or vacuum bags that can serve as breeding grounds, this handheld device has an extendable nozzle to reach insects in high ceilings, while the flexible rubber suction cup compresses to fit in tight corners, and the lightweight plastic design allows complete control while c hasing flying insects.
This device converts old 35mm slides and film negatives into digital images, allowing you to easily preserve your memories without having to rely on a conversion service. Slides and negatives are placed into a tray that aligns each properly; the touch of a button scans the image instantly.
It has a 5MP CMOS sensor that provides 10 bits per color channel for data conversion and uses fixed focus and automatic exposure control and color balance, resulting in clear digital images without loss of quality. It can scan images up to 1,800 dpi and uses three white LEDs as a back light source.
For photo transfers and power, it has a USB cable (requires USB 2.0) that plugs into a PC running Windows XP and includes software that allows you to edit, crop, and resize your slides as well as convert your negatives into positives.
It's not the natural habitat of the millionaire. But if you visit a particular McDonald's store in Cardiff, you've every chance of being served by one. Luke Pittard, 25, won £1.3million on the National Lottery 18 months ago. He celebrated in the usual way; buying a new home and splashing out on a lavish wedding and holiday in the Canary Islands.
Then he realized that he really missed his job. So he asked to go back and couldn't be happier, getting up at the crack of dawn to flip burgers for £5.85 an hour. "They all think I'm a bit mad but I tell them there's more to life than money," he said.
A new study finds that the more educated you are, the more likely you are to use Google. Oh yeah, and rich people are better at spotting suspect information while poor people believe just about anything they read on the intarweb.
The study, published in the March/April issue of the Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology, finds that wealthy, educated Americans are more capable of identifying untrustworthy information about child-rearing on the Internet than poor, uneducated Americans.

The concept of center of gravity was first introduced by the ancient Greek mathematician, physicist, and engineer Archimedes of Syracuse. Archimedes showed that the torque exerted on a lever by weights resting at various points along the lever is the same as what it would be if all of the weights were moved to a single point — their center of gravity.

An Oregon man said hoax ads on the Web site Craigslist.org cost him nearly everything he owned.
Robert Salisbury, who lives in the southern Oregon town of Jacksonville, said someone posted an ad on the Web site that offered up all of Salisbury’s belongings for free. He wasn’t home when people showed up to his house and loaded items into their cars.
The trespassers, armed with printouts of the ad, tried to brush him off. "They honestly thought that because it appeared on the Internet it was true," Salisbury said. "It boggles the mind."
Blu-Ray’s copy-protection was cracked with SlySoft’s help. Looks like the fruit of their labor is going on sale. SlySoft is releasing an update to their AnyDVD HD software that will crack the copy-protection used in Blu-Ray discs. The software already cracked HD-DVD’s copy-protection last year.
SlySoft's claims about its software appear to be accurate. The company has a track record for its ability to hack CD and DVD copy protection and let consumers clone the files. But Richard Doherty, an analyst at Envisioneering Group, said the program may not work with all Blu-ray discs.
Gibson is on a lawsuit rampage! Earlier this month the guitar company sued Activision claiming patent violations. This week they are taking on Wal-Mart and five other retailers including Kmart, Target and GameStop.
Santa Monica, Calif.,-based Activision contends Gibson’s patent assertions have no merit. Gibson has said it wants Activision to stop selling “Guitar Hero” until it gets a license under the patent.

Stealing $15 of Del Taco food for you and your buddies can land you a maximum of seven years in prison. That's what two accomplices are up against in a case where three men filmed themselves tricking Del Taco employees over the phone to give them a free meal and then posting it on YouTube.
So the “big deal” lately is how the new ASUS Nova Lite Mini 2L PC is a full featured PC that looks like a Nintendo Wii. Personally, I don’t see what the big deal is. The Nova Lite mini PC looks as much like a Wii as the Wii looks like a plain old external CD/DVD drive. What do you think?
Perfectly-sized and styled to fit into the home or office's chic décor, the NOVA LITE 2L PC is well-equipped for daily computing needs and also provides innovative features when it comes to audio and energy-saving. Catering to the design and budget conscious, this mini PC gives out more than its size reveals – a remarkable compact box with just about everything you need in it.
So Microsoft, for no real discernable reason, slipped from number eleven to number fifty nine on some brand recognition list and now people are trying to say the “I’m a Mac” ads are responsible.
"The effect of Apple's 'Hi, I'm a Mac' advertising campaign may have taken its toll on Microsoft," CoreBrand CEO James Gregory said in a statement. "The launch of a series of new products, following a long, relatively dormant period, will be closely watched to see if it will have a positive impact on the Microsoft brand."
Ummm, what? If that were true, wouldn’t you think those very same ads that supposedly dropped MS almost 50 spots would have helped Apple in some way? The company didn’t even make the list. Why does Microsoft come in second only to Coca Cola when BusinessWeek conducted the same survey? Are we to believe that this company believes Americans are so stupid that Mac ads could sway their opinion? What do you think?

So China has blocked YouTube again, this time it is over the protests in Tibet and people are what….shocked? Amazed that China has blocked something on the internet again? You’d think by now people would realize that China isn’t a big fan of the intarwebs.
But access has been blocked after videos on the site showed foreign news reports about protests that erupted Friday in capital of Tibet. Montages of photos were also blocked, as well as scenes from Tibet-related protests abroad.
An co-worker got a pen stuck inside our printer. He started to try and remove the pen, but I told him we don’t have time for that now, just put a note on the printer telling folks not to use it and then report it to the Help Desk.
So he grabbed a piece of paper and scrawled on it. I left before he finished the note. About 20 minutes later, one of my techs comes in laughing and says he was just in the lobby, saw a piece of paper on a printer and went to investigate.
Below is what he found. Sometimes things don’t always come out the way you want them to……
Technology is a wonderful thing. On one hand, technology allows us to do wildly amazing things like building space robots shaped like huge spiders. On the other end of the spectrum, technology allows us to make robotic tennis ball launchers to keep our pets and small children entertained.
Taking a good picture is hard enough with a single lens, imagine using a camera that has over 12,600 lenses. Imagine the depth that this could give to por…umm, I mean...artistic photography of the female anatomy.
However, the digital camera being worked on at Stanford will contain thousands of tiny lenses, each a miniature camera unto itself. The aim is to produce an electronic "depth map" containing the distance from the camera to every object in the picture, a kind of super 3D, according to the researchers.
The sunset is often more brightly colored than the sunrise, with the shades of red and orange being more vibrant. The atmosphere responds in a number of ways to exposure to the sun during daylight hours.
In particular, there tends to be more dust in the lower atmosphere at the end of the day than at the beginning. During the day, the sun heats the surface of the Earth, lowering the relative humidity and increasing wind speed and turbulence, which serves to lift dust into the air.
However, differences between sunrise and sunset may in some cases depend more on the geographical particulars of the location from which they are viewed. For example, on a west-facing coastline, sunset occurs over water while sunrise occurs over land.

Getting hacked is embarrassing for any website. Getting hacked when you sell security software has to be humiliating.
A Trend Micro spokesman confirmed that the company's site had been hacked Thursday, saying that the attack took place earlier in the week. "A portion of our site -- some pages were attacked," said Mike Sweeny, a Trend Micro spokesman. "We took the pages down overnight Tuesday night -- and took corrective action."
Trent Reznor, front man for Nine Inch Nails, is reporting $1.6 million in sales and almost 800,000 transactions after just one week of online sales. Hopefully this will encourage other bands to follow their lead and cut out the middleman.
On Wednesday, he reported 781,917 transactions, including free and paid downloads and orders of physical product. A $300 box set sold out of 2,500 copies within a day. Nine of the 36 songs were made available as a free download. The complete set also was available as a $5 download, a $10 double-CD and a $75 set with bonus visual content.
Aaron Greenberg, group product manager for the Xbox 360, said today that Microsoft is not in talks with Sony to make a Blu-ray add-on drive. Not really a surprise but it does end weeks of speculation that there would be a Xbox 360 Blu-ray drive.
Microsoft, which has stopped making an HD-DVD add-on for the Xbox 360, would continue to invest in its Xbox Live online service that already lets users rent hundreds of movies, including ones in high-definition. "We're the only console offering digital distribution of entertainment content," Greenberg said.

Check out this concept desk with a built in laptop docking station. The two fit together seamlessly and seems like it would be as functional as it beautiful. Whether or not this ever goes into production is anyone’s guess but a skilled modder / craftsman could turn this into a hell of a DIY project.
DesCom was coined by combining the words “Desk” and “Computer”. This design was created with “one-room people” who value future entertainment in mind. When connected to a basic home theater, it functions as a main computer and, when the main body is separated, it can be installed in the living room.
It seems the authorities in Rockwall County Texas are pretty serious about what they consider a backup server. The county threw the book at one of its own, the county’s District Attorney, for building a gaming rig instead of a “backup” server.
The computer – equipped with two hard drives, seven fans, high-end video and audio cards, a wireless Internet connection and cables that glow under ultraviolet light – is designed for playing video games, prosecutors say.
“Pick up milk.” “Feed dog.” “Finish homemade nuclear sub.” Like many people, I can’t function without writing little reminders to myself. But using one paper sticky note after another causes a lot of clutter and can be pretty wasteful. Instead, assemble a bunch of surplus parts into a digital note system for your kitchen or office. Just write out your message with your fingertip on a computer trackpad, and it appears on an LCD screen.
When you’re done, press a button and the screen is erased. Add a rechargeable battery and an enclosure, and you have unlimited (and eco-friendly) note-making capability. The project does require some computer code to drive the LCD; you can copy it here. If you can just remember that, you’ll be good to go.
Get a load of this, scientists say they have designed a machine just a few molecules in size that actually mimics how the brain works. Researchers believe this can be used as the foundation for a super powerful computer or used to power a complex microscopic machine.
The idea is to hook this new gadget up with other molecules — either copies of itself or different compounds other scientists have invented. For instance, researchers have created a host of machines just a molecule or so large over the last decade or two — motors, propellers, switches, elevators, sensors and so on. The new invention might offer a way to control all those other compounds to work as a whole.
An airline is under fire for flying an aircraft across the Atlantic with only five passengers. The Boeing 777 used 22,000 gallons of fuel to take the five from Chicago to London.
It led to American Airlines being accused of reckless behaviour by green lobby groups, reports the Daily Telegraph. Friends of the Earth said it was 'obscene' to waste so much fuel flying an almost empty plane
It's estimated each passenger was responsible for 43 tons of CO2 - enough to carry a Ford Mondeo around the world five times.
Toshiba's decision to pull the plug on HD DVDs will entail production line changes and other charges that would double the 50 billion yen loss the electronics group had previously expected this business year on next-generation DVDs, the Nikkei said. "We did not announce this, and therefore we cannot comment," a Toshiba spokeswoman said.
Researchers at the University of South Florida College of Public Health say that red-light cameras significantly increase crashes and are a danger to the public. That's not to say that all traffic cameras are bad, some can actually be used to help motorist.
“The rigorous studies clearly show red-light cameras don’t work,” said lead author Barbara Langland-Orban, professor and chair of health policy and management at the USF College of Public Health.

Even Roger Waters closed his mouth over his famous song "Watching TV" when he held a concert in Shanghai last year. But the famous alternative Icelandic singer Bjork's concert finale on Sunday night has provoked her live audience and later countless Chinese netizens when informed that she was declaring "Tibet! Tibet!" during her encore song: "Declare Independence".
A man surnamed Wei who was present told the Global Times, the subsidiary international paper of the People's Daily, what the scene was like while the audience chanted the lyrics "raise your flag!" with the singer in the song "Declare Independence", and then Bjork suddenly shouted "Tibet! Tibet!"
Odds are, you take your iPod or Zune for granted. You probably don't think about the crazy technological advancements we've made, but take a ten-year look back at the world's first MP3 player -- the MPMan F10 -- and you'll get a sense of just how far we've come. Manufactured by Korea's Saehan Information Systems, the device was launched in March of 1998 at CeBIT, and went on sale in the Summer through Eiger Labs for $250.
The player featured 32MB of flash memory (which could be upgraded to 64MB via mail-in scheme), connected to PCs via parallel port, and had a miniscule LCD for playback info -- but it laid the groundwork for the tech we have today. Following the MPMan's release, Rio unleashed its PMP300, which received a warmer reception and all-but eclipsed the F10's status as "first" amongst players, likely due to the company's well-known (and groundbreaking) legal battle against the RIAA.
The days of worrying about the National Security Agency eavesdropping on your phone conversation are long gone. That’s the good news. The bad news is that we still have to worry about the NSA going through our e-mail and watching us surf the net.
Today those massive installations, which listened in on phone conversations beamed over microwave links, are becoming something akin to relics of the Cold War. As more communications traffic travels through fiber links, and as e-mail and text messaging supplant phone calls, the spy agency that once intercepted telegrams is adapting yet again
The M4125 Maid PC Case does just that by incorporating a Mini-ITX compatible case within the hips and legs, and covered by a choice of one of two maid skirts.

A British company called ThruVision has created a camera that can detect weapons, drugs, or explosives hidden under clothes from up to 25 meters away. They will unveil it at an exhibition on March 12-13.
The ability to see both metallic and non-metallic items on people out to 25 meters is certainly a key capability that will enhance any comprehensive security system.
I wonder at what resolution these “non-metallic items” will be shown by this camera. If the Paparazzi can buy these, the celebrity image market will never be the same.
A study shows that if you are an idiot, you likely don't know it, and never will unless you get smart all of a sudden!
It seems that the reason for this phenomenon is obvious: The more incompetent someone is in a particular area, the less qualified that person is to assess anyone's skill in that space, including their own. When one fails to recognize that he or she has performed poorly, the individual is left assuming that they have performed well. As a result, the incompetent will tend to grossly overestimate their skills and abilities.
The article is over a year old, and the study a few years old, but it likely still holds its water.

When he entered the pornography industry, he changed his name at the request of his father. Jeremy is referred to as “the clown prince of porn” and “The Hedgehog”. He has gained some notoriety for his long penis, reported to be 9.75 inches (24.76 cm) and for being capable of autofellatio (which contributed towards the “Hedgehog” moniker)….
…His venture into pornographic movies occurred during the “golden era” of 1975 marked by high production values and good quality scripts, with the movies intended for cinematic release rather than video. However, during this era the production of adult movies was still illegal. Jeremy left New York for California but he was arrested on two occasions and faced a lengthy jail sentence before being reprieved as a result of the Hal Freeman precedent in the United States Supreme Court of 1988.
Despite his appearance, he has featured in over 2,000 films to date and has directed a further 100. He claims he gets more work when he is a bit on the heavy side, and this is the reason why he does not try to lose weight. He also claims to have had sex with over 4,000 women. He has said that he finds every woman beautiful, and this is what makes him a very versatile porn actor….
You are about to leave this place of safety, and venture into the world that lies beyond this door. You are going into a world of liars, hypocrites, murderes and thieves; of people who don’t care who you are, what you think or why you’re here. You are going to fight for your life when you open this door; with morons and sycophants, tin dictators, and heels, political vampires and religious fanatics. Beyond this oasis of dignity and strength lies the insanity of the uncaring, the foolish arrogance of youth and the dreadful waste of the aged. Ninety nine percent of the people you meet out there will act like fools and morons in your presence; like mindless, heartless hulks of animated protoplam whose only concern and singular goal is to destroy you. Once Outside, they will wrest your self respect from you, rip out your soul and tear your dreams to shreads. They will laugh at your opinions, gloat over your shortcomings, and delight in your destruction. Out there is misery, sorrow and sickness to awesome and frightening to be understood, too horrible to be imagined.

A new study suggests that seventy percent of the people that engage in illegal file sharing would stop if they were warned by their ISP. This makes you wonder if any “official” warning would work? And what of the 30 percent that will continue to download stuff regardless?
With the U.K. government considering whether or not to make Internet service providers cut off service to customers who repeatedly engage in illegal file-sharing, a new report issued in the country suggest that 70% of consumers there would stop such actions if they received a warning from their ISP.
According to a Circuit City employee in Chicago, the consumer electronics chain is trading in HD DVD players bought into their stores "within 3 months of the announcement," as opposed to their 30-day return policy.
What is the world coming to when a 15 year old kid shoots his father because he wouldn’t let him use the internet? Seriously, what the?!?! C’mon, there has to be more to the story than this. What do you guys think? Thanks to Terry Olaes, our new weekend news guy, for the link to this story.
Hughstan told detectives that he used the Internet to communicate with his friends and since his father took the Internet away, he was "just so depressed all the time," the report said.
CNet seems to think Microsoft might be switching its bid for Yahoo! to an all cash offer. It seems to me that it might be in Yahoo’s best interest to take the money while the negotiations are still somewhat civil. Don’t make Bill whip out his personal checkbook and buy the company.
The report, citing anonymous sources, says Microsoft is considering changing the way the deal is valued to 100 percent cash. Under its current offer, Microsoft is valuing the deal using a formula that is based on 50 percent cash and 50 percent Microsoft stock. As a result, the value of Microsoft's offer rises and falls based on the performance of its own stock price.

I am a huge fan of multi-monitor setups, I use a dual display setup every day, so it is no wonder that I found this multi-monitor stand impressive.

I saw this video the other day and I just had to share it with those of you that haven’t seen it. At first, it looks like a simple “playing with flammable materials” gag but, as you watch the video, this could actually be passed off for a decent science experiment.
The Washington Post says that travelers using Denver International Airport's free Wi-Fi service are blocked from viewing certain websites that the airport officials consider provocative. Makes you wonder what can be considered “provocative.”
Airport spokesman Chuck Cannon says officials decided to block access to potentially racy sites when the airport made its wireless internet service free in November. Cannon says the airport would rather deal with infrequent complaints about access than handle angry parents whose children might see pornography.
If you were planning on jumping on the Blu-ray bandwagon, you might want to wait. Sony says they might have $200 Blu-ray players coming out next year and $300 players “could” happen by the end of this year.
In comments made to reporters at a New York press gathering Wednesday morning, Sony Electronics President Stan Glasgow said, "I don't think $200 is going to happen this year. Next year $200 could happen. We'll be at a $300 rate this year; $299 will happen this year," according to Gizmodo.
The Software & Information Industry Association released its annual Anti-Piracy Year in Review this week. Among other things, the SIIA made a list of the titles most pirated by companies and titles pirated via the internet. For some reason I thought people would pirate cooler stuff than anti-virus protection.
Symantec Norton AntiVirus, Adobe Acrobat, Symantec pcAnywhere, Adobe Photoshop, Autodesk AutoCAD, Adobe Dreamweaver, Roxio Easy CD/DVD Creator, Roxio Toast Titanium, Ipswitch WS_FTP, and Nero Ultra Edition. The most frequently pirated software titles on the Internet last year were: McAfee VirusScan, Symantec Norton AntiVirus, McAfee Internet Security Suite, Intuit TurboTax, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Acrobat, Intuit Quicken Home and Business, Symantec Norton pcAnywhere, Symantec Norton Ghost, and Adobe Creative Suite.
