Windows Earlier this week, a senior National Security Agency official told US Congress that the NSA had worked on Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 7. This spurred a flurry of rumours about the NSA building backdoors into Windows 7, but Microsoft has today categorically denied these claims.

Why bother building back doors into Windows when the front door is always unlocked anyway!? ;)

Yeah yeah... I actually do use Windows, so don't take that so seriously.

In a restaurant somewhere in the State of Washington:

NSA agent: So, Steve, what's user U357-E2H3-456T-UI4G doing?

Balmer: (Fiddling with netbook) Hmmm. Gonna have to log into my Google account for this... Oh... he's still watching porn.

NSA agent: Well, how about X357-UD42-JK56-03T5?

Balmer: Damn this mobile broadband! Sometimes I think that space aliens must be... oh, here he is. It's porn.

NSA agent: Well, for folks who are major threats to national security, these guys of yours certainly lead boring lives.

Balmer: Yeah. I've kinda noticed that. Sometimes I wonder if we aren't a little to blame... That's off the record, you understand.

NSA agent: Understood. QUAW-56WE-42W7-H81V?

Balmer: (Tap, tap, tap) Oooo! That's gay shit!

NSA agent: *sigh* OK. How about 0000-0000-0000-0001?

Balmer: Wha?

NSA agent: 0000-0000-0000-0001.

Balmer: But... that's...

NSA agent: Yes, I know.

Balmer: Well, OK. (Tap, Tap, Tap) Oh my f--king god! This is just disgusting. It's Bill getting it on with his wife in front of the webcam! At least, I think that's her. It's hard to tell.

(Bleep! Bleep! Bleep!)

NSA agent: What was that?

Balmer: Looks like he just got a text message on his phone on the night stand. It's from a couple of guys named Medvedev and Putin inviting him to an encrypted virtual teleconference.


NSA Agent: What was that?

Balmer: Just the vibrator, I think.

NSA Agent: Which one? The Phone?

Balmer: Uhhhh....

NSA Agent: Never mind!

Balmer: I have 15 Google "accept on behalf" minutes left . Should I repsond? I get 5 Bill-voice minutes free.

NSA agent: No. Pan back to the bed.

Balmer: Actually, I think it's the kitchen.

NSA Agent: Whatever!

Complete bullshit, you know Ballmer would never use anything from Google.

Everything else... well, don't know.
