Scoop..!

You probably won't have heard about this, but we've got the inside track on the latest developments on planet technology. Word on the street has it that today, American computer company Microsoft has launched what it is calling a new "computer operating system" and we can exclusively reveal its codename: Misty. Fisty. Pasta. Summat like that, anyhow.

We found out about it from top secret underground newsrag, "The Inquirer" which has also pulled wide open the kimono of the entire tech PR industry.

Help! We've been rumbled.

All seems like common sense really. Presumably the man Thomas practices what he preaches and therefore never attends a corporate press launch.

Heaven forbid that he should ever accept a free plane ride from Microsoft for their next 'mutual back-slapping' type event in Las Vegas or wherever...

Thomas used to be an Intel spin doctor back in the day... though perhaps he was always something of a double agent (a lot of Intel's internal press handling stuff appeared on El Reg soon after he left.)

Shame to see the old boy fantasising about girls called Tamara. I've been in PR 15 years and I've never met one, let alone two...

Despite his fantasies (probably induced by too many trips to Computex, and looking at the cover of PC Format), and his selective memory with regard to PR, he is actually an extremely nice bloke and very good company.
