Vista hacks...

Funny stuff: If you switch on voice control in Windows Vista and leave your speakers on, it's possible for websites you visit to control you PC by simply talking to the Vista voice control over the speakers. It's obvious - but the problem is already fixed in the pre-vista OS, Mac OS X which requires a special keyword before commands, because this exploit is so obvious (a passable sound for words that will shut down Vista will be common on websites shortly, I assume).
