The Desktop Strikes Back

Bad DayThere's a classic surveillance video, called A Bad Day, showing a poor, defenceless computer being attacked by a berserk user. (Larger version available here.)

Alas, as you may have surmised, it's too good to be true. :
When Bad Day debuted, it was thought to be a candid mini-psychodrama showing the stress endured by the modern worker. It turned out to be an advertising clip for an office surveillance company.
But now there's a short online video of a similar situation, showing what would happen with today's new, vicious security measures in action.


Hat Tip : Utterly Boring
