Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Telewest has announced a massive list of sign-ups to its interactive TV service, including CNN, Interflora, Lunn Poly, Tie Rack etc etc. Strangely it has also joined up with Boo.com - which was flushed down the dotcom toilet just yesterday - but then what has the Internet ever had to do with timely information?

The list looks very impressive but then pose this question: if Telewest called you up and said "You don't need to give us any money but would you be interested in forming part of our digital TV strategy?", would you say "No, ta". No you wouldn't.

So what we have here is an interesting list of the Net companies that Telewest rates. Like to know who?

Abbey National
Air Miles
Air Tours
Argos
Avis Europe
Bloomberg TV
Blue Square
Bristol & West plc
British Airways...

Bored now. Anyway, if they've plugged lots of money into the Net and haven't signed with a competitor to Telewest, they're probably there. ®
