    Hilarious story.

    But HP must be white-knuckled about the video going viral.

    Anyone notice that the images also are reversed? The names on their nametags are backward, as is any printed word in the background.

    This happens with any photo taken on my macbook with photobooth (the built-in camera) as well.

    Absolutely, in fact, I heard the other day that Hewlett-Packard computers hate Michael Vick....[/crossthread]

    HP computers may not be racist, but they approve of the distasteful comments on the Chris Henry thread.

    Who knew that life would imitate an episode of 'Better Off Ted'?

    (Now, if HP sends white interns to assist with the motion sensors the way Veridian Dynamics did, *that* would be impressive...)
