By Constantine von HoffmanOK, so tomorrow is the day the Kama Sutra virus is supposed to start overwriting several popular file formats. Despite this, Microsoft \u2013in what is either an overwhelming dedication to irony and\/or romance \u2013 has announced it won\u2019t update the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool until its regularly scheduled release on \u2026 VALENTINE\u2019S DAY. (All you Linux\/Mac acolytes, this is where you put the joke about how if the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool really worked it would just remove Windows.) \n\nFurther proof that any birdbrain can write a blogA flock of pigeons is going to be blogging about air pollution in California. The birds, equipped with a GPS satellite tracking receiver, air pollution sensors and a basic mobile phone, will be released in the skies over San Jose, CA, in August. Quoth Reuters:\n\nText messages on air quality will be beamed back in real time to a special pigeon \u201cblog.\u201d The birds will also be posting pictures of their flights. I am soooooo out of a job.Going to China: Companies cry,\u00a0"Stop me before I earn again."Unable to resist the lure of potential profits Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo are asking the US government to do something they would not and take a stand against censorship in foreign countries. Quoth InformationWeek:\n\nIn a statement prepared for a meeting held Wednesday by the Congressional Human Rights Caucus, Andrew McLaughlin, Google\u2019s senior policy counsel, asked the U.S to go to bat for American values overseas by extending the definition of free trade to include the free flow of information.Microsoft and Yahoo! chimed in with a letter of their own that urged \u201cthe United States government to take a leadership role in this regard.\u201d Subtext: You better do it because you know we\u2019re not going to. Isn\u2019t this like sports team owners calling for a salary cap because they can\u2019t control their own spending?And all you cynics out there who are adding, \u201cYou expect THIS administration to oppose censorship?\u201d Well, your names have been forwarded to the Justice Department, FYI (patent pending). Not to give them credit or anything, but Google may have come up with an actual way to flout its agreement with the Chinese government: Bad programming. Turns out that a small misspelling at Google.cn will get you the results you really wanted. Quoth Business 2.0:\n\nIf you search for \u201cTiananmen,\u201d you get peaceful photos of the Beijing square -- but if you search for common misspellings like "Tienanmen," "Tianenmen," or "Tiananman," you get photos of tanks.\u201dNow if they would just set that little \u201cDid you mean\u201d feature to suggest other ways not to correctly spell what you are looking for.
