The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Victoria's Secret - the saucy but classy US lingerie maker - will be having a fun-filled fashion show in Cannes tomorrow. It's not much to get excited about - just hordes of beautiful women wearing nothing but the latest range of sexy lingerie walking up and down a catwalk one after the other.

But before you start booking that last minute flight to the south of France, read on. Yes, gawd bless 'em, Victoria's Secret have decided to webcast it live, so wherever you are at 3pm EDT if you were to get to an Internet terminal, some handy shopping ideas or handy recreational activity - depending upon your sex - could be yours.

Sadly, this is where the joy ends. Victoria's Secret has done this before (just before Valentine's Day last year). That time the site crashed due to enormous demand. Even if it does manage to get enough bandwidth this time round, the sad thing is it may not be worth it - you can check out highlights of last year's show on the company's website and they ain't much. The screen is also regulation two-inch (without close-ups, that's fatal).

Mind you, the backstage photos are worth a peek. ®
