wikid-systems-in-trouble-again-for-bribing

Today it was revealed that selected bloggers that include positive mentions of WiKID Systems' two-factor authentication system were promised that could potentially receive a new-to-them laptop for their efforts. The laptops were described as Dell Latitude CPx with a screaming fast in-its-day P11600mhxz chip that are currently stacked unused in the closet and a dual-boot Thinkpad T23 with a persnickity display and built-in Snarkiness (TM) for the best blogging experience.

Many bloggers were understandable confused:

  • "Those are worse than the laptop I use as a doorstop." - Adam Shostack Emergent Chaos
  • "Well, it is more than I was offered by Microsoft." Dana Epp Dana Epp's Weblog
  • "What kind of cheap $#%^%^ do they take me for? I can't stay mad at them, though: they do have the best two-factor authentication system ever!" Daniel Davenport Think D2C
  • The company said that the winners will be announced once all the Ferrari Acer laptops are returned to Microsoft.
