The Diebold ATM Media Player

Thanks to David on ST-J, I am happy to show you The Diebold ATM Media Player
The Event: A newly installed Diebold Opteva 520 ATM crashes, then reboots. Suprizingly, it's vanilla-style Windows XP operating system initialized without the actual ATM software.
The Result: A desktop computer with only a touch screen interface is left wide open for the amusement of the most wired university in the U.S.
Read about how they turned an ATM into a digital jukebox before an annoyed faculty member pulled the plug. The frightening part:
The story is humorous until one realizes that Diebold is the leading producer of electronic voting machines. We can all look forward to playing Minesweeper while exercising our citizenship.

Do you know of any plans to move NC to electronic voting machines?

That's good - I hadn't heard of any either, but if I do I plan to make some noise about it. :)
