Microsoft's update to its anti-piracy tool is now available via Windows Update, the company has confirmed. Called Windows Activation Technologies, or WAT, the update adds technology to detect some 70 activation exploits that pirates have come up with to bypass Windows 7's activation protections, according to Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT).

"This update for Windows Activation Technologies helps detect validation errors and activation exploits. This update also detects any tampering attempts made to important Windows 7 system files," Microsoft said in a Knowledge Base article describing the update.

The article adds that many hacked copies of Windows 7 are also infected with malware -- malicious code meant to violate the user's computer security, steal information or hold the PC hostage, for instance.

The decision by Google Inc to join battle with the Chinese government censors and hackers adds huge drama and immediacy to a long-running story.

Fugitive ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra Wednesday said he wanted to send flowers rather than bombs to the Privy Council president as a New Year present.

In his Twitter message, Thaksin said: "If I can make an order, I will send a bomb that is full of flowers and has the scent of tea rose to his home so that HE Prem has some sympathy for me."

The ex-leader was responding to messages from "followers" of his Thaksinlive account in the Twitter social-networking website.

One of the followers said: "I hope there is no bomb during the New Year celebrations. I'd like you to please order your men about this."

Google gave the first public look at its Chrome OS four months after declaring its intention of developing the PC's main software, a move that pits it directly against Microsoft Corp and Apple Inc. True to Google's Internet-pedigree, the Chrome OS resembles a Web browser more than it does a traditional computer operating system like Microsoft Windows, matching Google's ambition to drive people to the Web -- where they can see Google ads.
