Who Are the Richest People In Tech?


According to PC Pro, there are some Asus recovery DVDs floating around containing some pretty weird files. A reader reported that the DVD that came with his notebook contains a directory named “Crack” that’s full of serial numbers for various software, a directory full of confidential Microsoft files containing information about certain PC manufacturers as well as more software keys, and a mish-mash of internal Asus documents along with source code and even a PowerPoint file “that details ‘major problems’ identified by the company, including application compatibility issues.”

Asus has responded, saying "We will be investigating this at quite a high level. Once the investigation is complete, we will ensure it doesn’t happen again." Good idea!
