This crazy World ....

We are all aware that there's money, serious money in mobiles as well as PCs and other things technical ...

Sunday afternoon, I received a cold call from a well spoken chap asking if I would like a free phone - the latest ( ? ) Nokia, complete with camera, This was a T-mobile contract. The line was bad, could hardly make out what he was saying, but when I asked where he was phoning from, his answer was clear enough ..... India ! Just wondered what my old Dad would have made of this crazy 'modern' world !

...... handing IT over ? I am told that one of the major companies involved in Financial Services has now handed over ( to an Indian organisation ) its compliance monitoring i.e regulatory checking for pension mis-selling etc. So its not just call centres that are booming.
