and this is a case in point.

Many people will find that when new meters are installed in their homes a telephone line is connected to the meter. This is because in the future there will not be any human meter readers, it will all be done automatically, down the phone line. A computer will read your meter remotely, will print the bill, and post it to you - all without any human intervention.

What fun that's going to be.
