This morning we were faced with a quandary. It was 6.10am, there was no news on the telly and all the computers in the house were off but we wanted to know who had won the footy last night. What to do? Fire up a PC and wait a minute or so, or take a trip back in time and have the info in a matter of seconds.
I’ve loved Teletext for years, since the very early 90s when I was living in a house that had it, a rare luxury back in uni days. It’s been all but trumped by the net in the intervening years and I can’t believe that Channel 7 have kept it going. Every now and then I’ll flick it on just to make sure I haven’t missed its demise.
