HeathenSomething really bizarre just happened to me, I opened quicktime 6 and this movie popped up: http://qtpix.apple.com/qtpix/qtpix_auto.mov.

How weird is that? Is it an Apple Prank? Whatever the story is it happened on both my macs, (both mac os x/qt 6 non-pro ed). For those who are too impatient to load the image/movie – it is an image of David Bowie with whited out eyeballs with the word “heathen” spelled rotated upside-down.

[Unfortunately no conspiracy here, Jon. What you are seeing is the cover of David Bowie’s new album Heathen. Probably the result of a marketing agreement with Apple to use the album cover image as a QT6 example. -Ed]
