Newton Virus

This has been around for a while now, but not too many people know about it. Just for fun, a London-based design firm named Troika designed a computer virus. Just for fun.

Dubbed the Newton Virus, their mission was to create an application that harkened back to the “good old days”. When computers viruses were designed by geeks showing off their programming skills. Instead of geeks with cheesy logos trying to be deviant malcontents. Yes, this is a rare MAC virus, but you won’t get it on the World Wide Wonderful. It comes on a thumb drive and makes use of the accelerometers in Apple laptops. I’m all for using accelerometers. It doesn’t matter what their used for! Anyway, check out the video to see how fun this thing is. It appears that Troika does not intend on releasing this into the wild. Bummer.
