Hi all,

We (Marc Stevens, Arjen Lenstra and me) have used a Sony PlayStation 3 
to correctly predict the outcome of the 2008 US presidential elections.
See if you want to know
the details of what this has to do with cryptography.

We also announce two different Win32 executables that have identical 
MD5 hash values. This can be made to happen for any two executable
This implies a vulnerability in software integrity protection and 
code signing schemes that still use MD5.
See for details.
