Poor, poor Outlook...

Lets not get into the details of just how horribly broke you guys are, but for Christ's sake, when you do a bloody technology and gadget special please check, double-check and triple check that an image of a gadget you use actually exits. Like the gadget you claim is a PSP. It has iPhone logos, a sliding QWERTY keyboard and a Cybershot logo. I've never been a major fan of the PSP, but something like this pssing under the radar. I mean Apple and Sony working together. Of course, Outlook also had a piece on internet hoaxes in the same issue. Makes perfect sense now. But guys you just lost all your gadget cred if you got undone by a photoshopped gadget. It had clues giving it away. For the record, the 'PSP-iPhone-Sidekick' is pictured below and originally came from here.

Quite wierdly, these well coordinated attacks coincide with the 'Heroes day' of the Tamil Tigers, the LTTE.

The LTTe was creatd by India, then let down by Rajiv Gandhi government, faught and kileld many thousands of Indian troops and then also Gandhi himself.

In the present on going conflict with the Sri Lankan state, the LTTE expected Tamilnadu help, which the Central government denied.

The Tamil Tigers are also being beaten so severely by the Sri Lankan Forces, and theri leader has not been able to even deliver his customary November 27th policy statement.

A spectacular attack which badly cripples the Indian government which not only stiffled Tamilnadu's efforts to help the Tigers , but also promoted international efforts against the Tigers' fund raising efforts overseas, would be a great birthday gift for the LTTE's chief Velupillai Pirapaharan.

One never knows who his true enemy is, until he is bitten.
