High tech convergence - indeed

Hope this one isn't too rude.


Three men, one American, one Japanese, and an Irishman were sitting naked in a sauna Suddenly there was a beeping sound. The American pressed his forearm and the beep stopped. The others looked at him questioningly. "That was my pager," he said, "I have a microchip under the skin of my arm. I never miss an important call"

A few minutes later a phone rang. The Japanese fellow lifted his palm to his ear. When he had finished he explained, "That was my mobile phone I have a micro-chip in my hand. I couldn't do business without it"

The Irishman felt decidedly Low-Tech, but not to be outdone, he decided he had to do something just as impressive. He stepped out of the sauna and went into the bathroom. He returned with a piece of toilet paper hanging from his behind.

The others raised their eyebrows and stared at him.
The Irishman finally said---"Well, will you look at that, I'm getting a fax."
