Mudge Cover’s Mass High Tech

So I get into work this morning and grab my snail-mail and throw it on my desk and go grab my morning oatmeal and glass of water. I get back to my desk and start eating my oatmeal as I go through my mail. Things like fake domain name renewal bills, pleas from wireless phone companies to switch services, a copy of Information Week, the normal crap that finds it way into the IT Managers inbox. Then I get to this weeks (August 22-28) copy of Mass High Tech and oatmeal spews out of my nose! Why? Freaking a big ass above the fold picture of Mudge’s fat smiling face staring back at me. Seriously his face takes up like half the damn page.

The online version is much smaller. Here is a scan of the front cover [PDF]. Just make sure you have finished your oatmeal before you open it.

Oh, the story? It is about finding security holes in heart defibrillators. Which is important I guess, and I suppose I would find it more interesting if I or someone I know actually had one of these implanted. Personally I can’t wait until someone starts looking at wireless utility meters.
