Hexadecimal Keys T-Shirt – for rebels without a pause


The Hexadecimal Keys T-Shirt comes with a full set of hex keys printed out on it, although one set has mysteriously been removed. Redacted they call it in polite circles. No-one knows why, but the assumption is that it could be something to do with the attempt by the AACS to restrict the dissemination of a recently released unlock key for copying HD-DVDs. Weird huh? $14.99.

 Lessons Learned: 1) When trying to keep a secret, serving people legal notice re: its existence slightly less than effective. Possibly deploy ninjas next time? 2) Members of online communities object to posts being removed. Ask owners of affected sites to replace posts with smiley face emoticons. 3) Allowing lawyers to create public relations policy = bad idea. 4) “Cease and Desist” kinda does the opposite.
