Found via the OCURITY ad in the back of the March issue of WIRED. Ad for Repo Men movie/becoming a "repo man" contained tattoos on the RepoMens' necks, ADFORO and CURITY. Put them together and you get ADFOROCURITY. In other words, an "AD FOR OCURITY." Flip to the back of the magazine to find an ad for Ocurity-made retinal-scanning sunglasses. There's a barcode that supposedly leads to a promotional offer; when scanned by redlaser (app for iPhone; not sure if other barcode scanning apps on different phone platforms work, though the barcode does register to actual Ocurity sunglasses in the UPC Database), links you to http://theunioncares.com/mobile

TasksEdit

Each of the Runners is supplied a task to do on a certain day. The list of tasks is available via the ARGUS website. ARGUS updates with any new info at 8:30 AM PST. If the Runners fail to complete their daily task, their organ tracker goes live and we are given GPS coordinates via the RepoMen official game website, accessible through http://www.wiredinsider.com/repomen to registered hunters.
