Nintendo has patented an "insanity" system for video games where characters are affected by the situation they are in there preparedness and general state of mind so as to affect the reaction on input etc. Yikes, a character that refuses to move and cries for his mommy cause you didn't do enough training ...

So for the technology blunder of the week, it seems that some 3700 Zen Neoon mp3 devices have been shipped including the W32.Wullik.B@mm work. Poor bastards.
