Bill Gates Gets Phone Call From His Bench
from the oops dept
A few weeks ago we wrote about the park bench in the UK that Microsoft was wiring up. They finally “launched” the bench last week, and two teenagers discovered that you could use it to make free phone calls (even internationally) – so they called Bill Gates to let him know that maybe he should put some calling blocks on his bench. They apparently reached his “secretary” (though, I wonder if that’s true or if they just got a Microsoft operator/receptionist or something along those lines). MSN says that the bench has now blocked phone calls properly.
