Sony is the new Martians

Dan Kaminski does a fine job equating Sony's rootkit scandal to the blood-red Martian weeds which spring up in the wake of the invaders in War Of The Worlds, in the infection map reproduced opposite. Who knew Celine Dion and Cyndi Lauper were still that popular? I thought Celine was Canadian, not Martian. Same difference to Americans, I guess.

Seriously though, are any of the people who bought those CDs - likely from remainder bins - likely to play them in their PCs? The bewrinkled target audience for those artists are lucky to have graduated past the phonograph, let alone be a hardcore Winamp user.
