This afternoon I caught up with the local arm of
arguably the world's largest telco, AT&T.
Hold on, you say -- didn't the American government break up
AT&T back in the 1980s in an attempt to promote competition
in the country's telecommunications sector?
Yes, yes it did. However, as American comedian Stephen Colbert
points out in an amusing video clip (below) screened by AT&T at today's briefing, the telco is like the T1000 in
Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
"No matter how many pieces you break it into, it always comes
back together," says Colbert.
