Hackers took control of Sesame Street's YouTube channel on Sunday and replaced videos of kid-friendly puppets with real-life actors engaged in hardcore porn. Security firm Sophos reported on its suddenly appropriately titled "Naked Security" blog that the XXX-rated content was available for around 20 minutes before the channel was pulled for "repeated or severe violations of our Community guidelines."
You can view Sesame's Street latest jingle in one of two ways. On one hand, the song and skit about an iPogo stick brilliantly captures the absurdity of slapping a lowercase 'i' on existing products, touting there's an app for that, and then dancing for joy about your new magical device that's going to revolutionize something or other.
On the other hand, do we really need dancing puppets as influential as Sesame Street's cast pumping Apple's iAgenda into living rooms and daycare centers filled with another generation of techsumers? Perhaps we'd feel better about the whole thing if the iPogo's flaws were exposed by Oscar the Grouch -- we didn't spy a USB port, webcam, or memory slot, and we have our doubts the iPogo can do Flash.
