CAN WE BELIEVE WHAT WE READ IN APRIL FOOLS’ DAY ISSUE?

As yesterday’s issue was dated April 1, several of the items were no doubt regarded with the deepest suspicion, but we assure readers that to be best of our belief Matsushita really does have a magic breadmaking box; that IBM’s Dr Paul Grant really did suggest that superconductivity was child’s play; there really is a lady called Resurreccion Florendo who has been taken to court for taking Sony’s name in vain; NASA administrator James Fletcher really does want us to worry about pure semiconductors that can only be made in Outer Space; AT&T really is calling the public in to test drive its zanier ideas in a Consumer Laboratory; and that 18 people of the stated lines of business really were charged with ripping off the mobile phone company in New York; if however, we are asked to affirm, hand-on-heart that IBM UK really does plan to use split screen techniques to submit journalists to two technical briefings simultaneously tomorrow, we might just have to admit it isn’t.
