    Security expert Mcafee supposedly Arrested !!!

    Hi there
    I really checked the date to make sure it wasn't April 1

    See that John Mcafee (of Mcafee security packages etc) has been arrested -- it might not have been him since he's still wanted by authorities in Belize -- but still a good read.

    That was a few days ago and apparently incorrect, we've had Guatemala asylum claims and geotagged photos since

    Chillout M8. There are dozens of posts here that have nothing to do with Windows 8!

    I'm kinda thinking this is nothing more than all a publicity stunt.
