And You Though Listening to Your iTunes Was Harmless


I read this new article today and the firs thought that entered into my mind was very vivid.

Imagine yourself at work. You are working on a project, so you have your headphones on. You don’t have an iPod or a CD player, so you have your music playing though your computer. You pump up the volume to drown out the noise around you.

Suddenly alarms start to sound, lights go off, and the PA systems says that a missile attack has commenced on the government building you work in.

And all because you accidentally moved the wrong slider bar on your screen! I wonder in the person that did this is still employed?

But seriously, there has to be either a large amount of incompetence, or just a really bad design flaw, in order to “accidentally” broadcast a missile attack warning to 20 different government buildings.
