Snacking Good Times

LUNCHTIME -- Telecom or snack food vendor?

From The Philter Fun 'n' Games Department, see if you can correctly guess how many of the companies listed below are telecom service providers or convergence companies exhibiting at TelecomNext.

Note: The companies that aren't at TelecomNext are actually snack food industry concerns displaying their wares at Snaxpo 2006, right next door:

    1) Colorcon
    2) MobileTech Solutions Inc.
    3) VideoJet Technologies Inc.
    4) US Centrifuge
    5) Yamato Corp.
    6) Minsa Corp.
    7) MiT Systems Inc.
    8) FiberTech Inc.
    9) Bunge
    10) Spooner Vicars
— Phil Harvey, Bunge Editor, Light Reading

Answer: It was a trick question. None of them are telecom firms. You didn't have to be a Minsa member to figure that out.

re: Snacking Good Times I get the feeling that if i walked the floor at Snaxpo, I'd never eat junk food again...

Colorcon really is a food company, they do colorings, "food inks," and "polishings". Site includes a section about "No-Tox Products," which i guess means colorings that won't kill you. Swell.

I eat this stuff all the time, it's just that phrases like "food ink" make me think twice.

Did you mean Mensa not Minsa?

Spooner Vicars would be a great name for a Christian Rock Band from the UK.
