As an aside, when Paramount bought Desilu studio, they were upset to discover that Star Trek and Mission Impossible were losing serious money on each episode.

By CHOE SANG-HUN SEOUL, South Korea - A former South Korean teacher, Kim Jeong-min was at Narita Airport in Japan this month when he watched a television news report that Samsung Electronics' Galaxy Note 7 smartphone was banned on airplanes because it was prone to catching fire. Mr. Kim, 58, said he had felt humiliated, as if the non-Koreans in the airport lounge were looking at him. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/23/world/asia/galaxy-note-7-recall-south-korea-samsung.html ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Sun, 23 Oct 2016
