Chatting to a friend last night one thing led to another and next thing we were on the topic of journalism.  I was telling her about Shattered Glass, a movie that I had seen about American journalist, Stephen Glass, who was caught for making up stories, events and sources.

So I got a call yesterday on my land line from a guy with a heavy Indian accent sounding serious and urgent asking if I have a PC. I explain to him yes I do but its a laptop. He continues very seriously that he is from some technical computer company (cant remember the name he mentions) and that I should stay on the line while he transfers me to his supervisor.
