And here's a new fun twist and a slight variation of an old lecture
theatre joke about a voice activation demonstration (clear voice from
front row geek: "Computer! R M minus R slash star"):

"Microsoft has admitted that speech recognition features in Vista could
be hijacked so that a PC tells itself to delete files or folders."

... And a 'visually impaired operative' is very likely to leave the
speakers and microphone on...
