Getting the political message across

Now this is what I call an innovative way of using government funds to get a message across:

Indian laptops that crash if users try to remove pictures of minister - Telegraph

"One and a half million laptops given to poor students by India's largest state government crash if their users try to remove pre-loaded screen savers featuring pictures of the new chief minister.

The laptops, which feature pictures of Akhilesh Yadav and his father Mulayam, leader of the socialist Samajwadi Party, appear to be hi-tech election leaflets for the next election.
The laptop's political drawback was discovered by a number of students who tried to remove the screen savers shortly after receiving their £210 Hewlett Packard machines earlier this year."
