The Mediagate MG-100.

Scene: Brightly lit 3rd floor conference room in downtown Seoul high tech company. Table surrounded by seven glum-faced managers, clearly in a state of deep exhaustion. Suddenly, enthusiastic boffin bursts in with beam on face and A4 sheet of paper in hand.

“I’ve done it,” he exclaims, waving paper over head excitedly, “I’ve created the ultimate product. The Mediagate MG-100.”

Weary groans from assembled execs.

“No really, this time it can’t lose!”, he continues while scuttling over to flip-chart to scribble frantically. “There see?”

“See what Chang?” The silver haired and embattled CEO facing a shareholder meeting next week can barely spit the words out through his clenched teeth.

“The ultimate product, a device which manages to incorporate just about every trendy tech acronym that has ever been created, and what’s more, packaged in a really super friendly desktop size.”

Chang sinks happily into vacant chair, as execs look in growing wonder and delight at their salvation manifested on the flip chart.

“Thank God,” mutters CEO, retrieving the ceremonial Sake bottle from its hiding place behind the ersatz Ming vase in the corner, “We live to fight another day!”
