The BBC, best known for documentaries of cute and cuddly animals or highly infectious diseases, published a feature article last week from its Money programme about the launch of Windows Vista. In it, contains not only a very awkward photo of Tjeerd Hoek holding a Windows Vista orb cutout with an even more awkward caption that neither relates to Tjeerd or the interesting pose he provides, but a video segment with Jenny Lam about the default Windows Vista wallpaper, the aurora ‘bliss’.
However without any relevance to the article, it’s quite an interesting video that talks about why it was chosen as the ‘default’ wallpaper and where it was inspired from. Since nobody likes Windows Media or Real Player, I’ve re-uploaded it to YouTube for convenience.
And if you thought your eyes were playing tricks on you, yes, the BBC just referred to the Windows XP Bliss wallpaper as the “Teletubbies Hill” wallpaper. Their words. Not mine. Perhaps the BBC needs to go back to focusing on nature documentaries. 😐
