    hmmm... seems as though /. has came up with something interesting.. at least it combines articles, blogs, etc from a recent event..

    http://games.slashdot.org/games/04/07/24/1814210.shtml?tid=211

    There is a Halo 2 Movie Trailer that got released today.

    http://xbox.ign.com/articles/532/532934p1.html

    Strange thing .. is at the end, the official Xbox logo comes up. Instead of the xbox.com being there, it flashes ilovebees.com

    Now what's even more strange, is that at that website, is a very weird "popup" that shows a countdown... and an eerie message, with a plain website built out underneath it. It is even reported that the images on the site have embedded messages in the binary.

    Bungie.Net forums are blazing...

    And the best part, is that there is a blog of the WHOIS owner of ilovebees.com in which has a "story" to the "hack"...

    Could this be a weird marketing ploy? A mass release of information?

    And conspiracy theoreas are on the air Big Smile

    At least Microsoft HALO 2 marketing is very innovative.

    So ilovebees is ARG. And there is lot of hidden messages inside broken gifs code etc.
