Jacko Island

Sony Recalls "Infected" CDs
tinfoil reports: It has been a busy couple of weeks for Sony. First they get busted with not one, but two rootkits on their audio CDs. They are then hit with lawsuits in Italy and the U.S.A. and finally a virus has been spotted in the wild that takes advantage of one of the rootkits ability to hide programs, processes and files from the Windows PC user. Still, they've only made some half-hearted attempts to fix the situation, with a half-baked patch and an uninstaller that the user has to jump through hoops to get. They've also stopped making CDs with these DRM schemes on them, yet they've not offered to replace the CDs or pulled the CDs out of the market-place. 

Well, that is, until now. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story 


HHH Special: Anti-Hero
antiMusic reports: Mark's Hometown Heroes globe trotting continues today with a trip to Ontario to check out Anti-Hero's Unpretty. any band that combines the name of our site and Mark's series has be covered in this special! Here is Mark: 

As more and more time elapses, the concept of gender roles is being slowly eroded away. Women have lobbied for better rights for the female gender, and as such, progress has dictated much more equality between men and women in general. 

London, Ontario's Anti-Hero are an example of the positive results of gender equality. This four piece of socially aware rockers wear concepts like anti-conformity, female empowerment, equality, and personal betterment on their sleeves like safety-pinned punk band patches. Led by vocalist/guitarist/bassist Rose Perry, Anti-Hero strives to be just that; an uplifting, life-affirming, and strong beacon of social change and self-help that still trods on conventional ideas of heroism. Rounded out by Nicole VanHaverbeke (backing vocals, bass, rhythm guitars), Matty Cole (drums), and Jesse Tomes (lead guitars), Anti-Hero is a resounding clarion call in direct response to punk/alternative/grunge rock's traditionally prevailing nihilistic tendencies... see full story for more of this review!
