PC Maker Alienware Being Sued By Real Alien
Alienware, which is known as one of the best manufacturers of PCs for gaming, is being sued by Ted Gurgleburp of Princeton, N.J. claiming that only authentic aliens are allowed to use the Alien brand name. Ted released the following press release, "We aliens have been watching as millions are made off of our name and likeness. If my spaceship had not burnt up on arrival I'd have blown this entire planet into pieces by now. Luckily, I can rely on the U.S. Court system to enable a pain almost as cruel." Ted is also filing a lawsuit against 20th Century Fox for "Independence Day" which Ted claims has a character in the film that looks a lot like his uncle Fred.

New virus infects computers, and users love it!
A new computer virus, codenamed "MyWay", was designed to infect a person's computer and begin entering gibberish into people's word documents, excel spreadsheets, and powerpoint presentations. What the creator of the virus did not expect was just how much users would love this. Phil Cotton, a marketing manager for a major clothing company had this to say, "Most of my presentations are terrible anyway. When this new virus starting entering all that stuff into them I realized it was saving me huge time. I mean, no one really cares what I put on these slides!" Phil, like many others, began sending the program around to all of his friends with the subject, "Check out this great new virus!"
