It already seems forever ago! Remember Anna Chapman, the completely technologically inept Russian spy we busted and sent back to the motherland? She's now doing IT work for a Russian bank. Her Maxim cover shoot definitely was not a factor.

Chapman, remembered in the annals of technology for being unable to set up a wireless network, keeping her passwords written down on slips of paper, and giving her laptop to an undercover US intelligence agent for repairs, is now handling computers on a daily basis. So, the lesson to be learned here is that no matter how badly you screw up—even if it causes an international scandal—just get a cover photo in your underwear and everything will be swell.
