electronic voting machine is back with another ignoble showing, courtesy of researchers from the universities of Michigan and, of course
, Princeton. Picking up an AVC-Edge box that had seen live duty in collecting votes for the 2008 Virginia primaries, they quickly and all too easily managed to supplant the embedded psOS+ software with DOS, which was promptly followed by the installation of Pac-Man
. Given that the underlying circuit boards were populated with such luminaries as a 486 processor and 32 mega
bytes of RAM, we find this a most appropriate match of hardware and software. As to that whole voting security thing, maybe next time we should let people do it with their BlackBerrys
, eh? See the Pac do his thing on video after the break.
