Resist Or Be Terminated - Skynet Research Viral Updates

No, it's not Judgment Day just yet (that's not until May), but some viral marketing updates have started to hit on the Terminator Salvation front. So far we've covered the Skynet Research website quite extensively, but since it appeared in February, there haven't been any major updates to the site besides all the basics. As we all know, Skynet (or Cyberdyne) is the company that gains control over the machines and starts the war against the humans. So they're not on our side. And someone inside the company has started to alert us of who they are and what exactly they're trying to do - Resist Or Be Terminated.
There isn't much on that blog just yet, but there are a few interesting updates. An e-mail was sent out earlier today to everyone who signed up on the Skynet Research site saying: "Skynet Research is experiencing technical difficulties on our corporate website. A networking error has generated interference in the audio presentation. Do not be alarmed. Skynet Research is doing everything in our power to resolve this technical issue as quickly as possible and resume normal operation." An audio file was discovered and after being slowed down (listen via YouTube), it becomes a weird radio transmission from the future.
The latest update on the blog talks about Terrifying Images Found in Skynet Security Feed and some additional info regarding alarming discoveries at Skynet. Now this is getting interesting. We're not sure what the heck is going on, but there is a lot coming out of the woodwork, and it seems like this blog is going to be the central location for the Resistance. "A 'malfunction' occurred while the Skynet system was feeding information back to his laptop, causing horrific images to display on screen: Human beings horded like cattle into some kind of containment area, while a (Skynet?) security camera looked on." What's next?
