As a computer enthusiast I initially 'brushed off' the term hacking being thrown around by the media. Hacking in my social circles is considered an act whereby a computer user uses their computer to gain unauthorised access to another machine. The current affair concerns 'hacks' (Journalists) ringing a phone and, when it is not answered, inserting the default P.I.N. (personal Identification Number). Not rocket science and not hacking as I know it.
Somewhere in a not so far off galaxy called Murdoch the final battle has commenced. The Death Star - emblazoned with the huge but now flickering News Corp insignia - is under sustained attack from the rebel alliance.

Find a way to seduce working class people away from their natural instincts.
