Fatal Attraction (1)
As CTO (Chief Technology Officer) for MegaTech, Fred was used to getting tech gadgets in the mail. It was a perk of the position and he loved tech gadgets. Sometimes they were pitiful, sometimes interesting, some were wildly impractical. Most of the time they were not worth pursuing and for the most part useless. Sometimes they were a subtle or outright bribe for one thing or another. This one was different. It was what appeared to be a well-made helmet for skiing. This was interesting since he was an avid skier and was, in fact, getting ready to go out west for a couple of days of skiing and relaxation. He had just posted online about the upcoming trip. He was careful not to give any specifics as to the destination or time of the trip. Ever cautious, he passed the helmet over to his team to do a quick once over and make sure it wasn’t bugged since they had had some incidents in the past with attempted industrial espionage. They sent it back with a clean bill of health. It was a helmet with a GPS locator and a walkie-talkie, nothing more.
