Media Guardian: Viewer's needled by Sky's new PIN

Want to watch a racy late-night movie the next afternoon instead? If you recorded it on Sky+ you had better know your pin number. Read the rest at the Media Guardian (registration required because I'm not a front page name, alas).

I'm very proud of this one because:
- it's my first real mainstream mass-market non-computing piece - even Bluetooth headsets have the whiff of computing but TV is TV ;-)
- I took an irritation and pitched it as a story
- While there's been a lot of discussion online, I couldn't find anything that had already been published in the media, so while I've not broken the story, I have cracked it a little harder against the bowl of public opinion ;-)
