Microsoft does have an issue with geography

Here is a new Microsoft KB article about Services are not detected after you perform a DVB-T channel scan for services from Moscow or from Kiev in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 or in Windows Media Center in Windows Vista; however, if Moscow or Kiev is selected and Germany as Country, then services are detected:

When you scan for services in Moscow, and you select Russia as the country, no services are detected.
When you scan for services in Moscow, and you select Germany as the country, nine services are detected from Moscow.
When you scan for services in Kiev, and you select Ukraine as the country, no services are detected.
When you scan for services in Kiev, and you select Germany as the country, five services are detected from Kiev.
(emphasis added)

After the previous problem of placing the Swiss capital in Russia, this is far bolder.

Sony is evil

I just so agree with Todd:

Bad Company of the Year Award!:The company that I am putting at the top of my list is a 4 letter word so foul, that it has been banned from my home. I have asked my wife who is Japanese to refrain from buying any of their products for the next 5 years. The Bad company of the year is no other than SONY…
Sony is just a big no-buy company. My girlfriend knows why Sony is evil and we both will rather buy a more expensive or less appealing product from a competitor. "Sony is evil" has only 726 hits on Google, but this will increase.

Edit: More about the damage Sony does:

PowerPizza

LOL; that is a very nice idea; wouldn't it be great if the boxes were recycled ones? I don't really like my pizzas come in boxes, because they always taste like the box...
