Despite being blissfully retired, I still find myself being drawn to TV or news articles which are technology based. It’s just a fact of life. I did, after all, spend 30+ years in the IT and telecoms business, so I suppose it’s natural. I have bookmarked ‘The Telecoms Register’, which is a website giving all the low down on Telecomms companies and one of the things I miss about BT is the internal news websites which were very informative.

Take this morning’s revelation about transmitting holograms – amazing. The possibilities are limitless. Some are wonderfully salacious (and maybe I could be first into the market here – remember you read it here first – see number 5 below) whilst others are merely wonderful. Read on.
I was at a BT Conference (sorry annual jamboree) somewhere in

Guyand Kitty don’t need to go to school any more. They can stay at home all day and just send a hologram to their school – aaaaagh!
- You’ve just woken up, somewhere in
Europe, the morning after the last night of a Sales Conference. You’re still in your suit, you’ve been sick and it’s quite obvious a huge party took place in your room. You look up and the wife is staring at you – aaaaaaaagh!
- You answer the phone at home to kindly refuse a dinner party invite because you are ill (which you are not – you just cant stand them) and your hostess suddenly arrives in your living room.
- And finally, taking a little joke we used to play on unsuspecting guys in BT to the next stage. We’d leave them a message asking them to phone one of their customers and when they’d got through it was a sex chat line (we’d fixed the number so they didn’t know) – just imagine. We’re all sitting at our desks and suddenly this ‘gorgeous’ naked female appears in the office uttering unspeakables. Great !!!
Go on – think of a few yourself.
