JOURNALISTS CAN’T BE IN TWO PLACES AT ONCE

By CBR Staff Writer

Having scheduled a briefing in London on the Vector Facility for this Friday, IBM UK was greeted with howls of protest from the IBM correspondents of a score or more publications when it announced that there would be a briefing on the new Personal Computers in Greenock, Scotland at the same time: the poor hacks clearly couldn’t be in two places at once, but IBM has come up with an ingenious solution to the problem – it is beaming the Vector Facility briefing up to Scotland by cable and running it split-screen alongside the Personal briefing, enabling the journalists to get a more practical feel of the benefits – and the difficulties – involved in multi-tasking and windowing.
