What a crap piece of journalism. It is completely taken out of context. If you replace the word "virus" with "software" it would make much more sense. This is not new and is nothing newsworthy otherwise.

Agreed. Sensationalism...

He has merely surgically implanted a microchip inside his arm, which contains a bit of software which could be infected by a computer virus.
The title is completely misleading. That columnist must be desperate for a promotion...
