Security for virtualized datacentres

A bid to generate some PR puff for a new TV show devoted solely to the Internet has gone up in smoke. Andrew Bond, director of Genuine Web Technology, one of the companies behind the show, which will be broadcast on the Telewest cable network, boasts in a press release that .com will be the UK's "first dedicated Internet TV show". But The Register can confirm that .com has been pipped at the post by south coast ITV regional franchisee, Meridian Broadcasting, which has been running Cybercafe for the last three years or so. A spokeswoman for Meridian said she didn't know if Cybercafe was the UK's first dedicated Net show. A rather bemused and deflated Bond, who, coincidentally, will also co-host the show, said: "Oh..." With so much rubbish already talked about the Web, The Register hopes that the producers of .com improve their accuracy before the programme is broadcast next month. ®
