their new videophone today. Faze was there for a private
interview with both Shatner and Rogers' head of marketing.

face with anyone using the same handset anywhere in Canada
(on Rogers only). Like virtually everything cellular,
Rogers looks to youth to be the audience most interested
in the new technology. Shatner, when asked when the most
important advice he could give to our readers, said "I
know now that education is the primary instrument of success."
