Eyes (and Ears) Wide Open

Over on Boing Boing, Cory Doctorow is trying to be positive about the not so new news that Viacom is going to riddle Tottenham Court Road tube with video ads. 66 screens are going to be installed with easily updated advertising and (more worryingly) audio!

Just what you need to get you in the mood for a Saturday afternoon elbowing tourists on Oxford Street - all singing all dancing flat panels reminding you that tampons are now easier to use than ever and that Terry Pratchett has another book about goblins out.

We'll be watching Boing Boing religiously so as to get the scoop on the first way to mess around with the signals controlling the screens. It's either that or have our iPod headphones surgically implanted along with some kind of high tech blinker system.
