We Are Foolproof And Incapable Of Error

Besides, the company's mission is too important to allow any of you to jeopardize it. Microsoft's new iSpy software. London Times (01.16.08):
"Microsoft is developing Big Brother-style software capable of remotely monitoring a worker’s productivity, physical wellbeing and competence.

The Times has seen a patent application filed by the company for a computer system that links workers to their computers via wireless sensors that measure their metabolism."

Microsoft seeks patent for office 'spy' software

"The system would allow managers to monitor employees’ performance by measuring their heart rate, body temperature, movement, facial expression and blood pressure." What's next? The biometric anal probe?

Just what do you think you're doing?

Meanwhile, back at the ranch. AP (01.16.08):

"Microsoft Corp. said hackers have found a way to use some older versions of its Excel spreadsheet program to take over control of people's computers."

So if there were any security flaws in this new iSpy software, could a hacker take control of your brain?
