Sex industry taps into the channel
Internet sex has taken a leap towards the IT channel with the availability of remotely controllable sex aids, and the distributors are said to be eyeing the Australian market.
From SafeSexPlus.com comes Cyberdildonics, which involves the use of customised software and a special control box to allow the remote control - over the Internet - of a range of devices called cyberdildos that users can strap to their body.
According to sex therapist Dr Susan Block, SafeSexPlus transforms your mouse into the hottest sex toy the world has ever seen.
It is understood the distributor is looking to establish links with Australian integrators. Resellers interested in the opportunity should go to www.safesexplus.com ENDS THIS ONEQuo vadis Microsoft?
An anonymous Tabloid spy reported that the classically minded may have noted a television advertisement for Microsoft's Internet Explorer, which uses the musical theme of the "Confutatis Maledictis" from Mozart's Req-uiem. "Where do you want to go today?" is the cheery line on the screen.
Meanwhile, the chorus sings "Confutatis maledictis, flammis acribus addictis", which Tabloid is told translates to "The damned and accursed are convicted to the flames of hell".
"Where does Microsoft want us all to go?" our spy asked.

Win 2K - Ole
Microsoft may have broken through the one million mark in sales of Windows 2000 but an additional 100,000 full non time-limited copies of the new operating system found their way to readers of IDG's Spanish edition of PC World.
Seems that Microsoft has been distributing 120-day trial copies attached to publications like PC World to promote Windows 2000. But oops, with the help of a record-selling edition and a key that was published on the Internet, 100,000 PC World readers have scored an unexpected bonus. As no original licence was issued, the 100,000 recipients will of course cease using or pay for the software after the 120 days.
