Hmmmm. That screenshot is clearly faked. Unless they had an Iyonix 10 Jul 2002! The teletext time and computer time don't even match.

Well, the teletext page being displayed is not from any broadcast channel. It's probably a page loaded from disc.

Failing that, the page could simply come from the future. ;o)

Considering that the teletext page is one advertising their product, it's almost certainly a disc-based image.

It would've been more impressive if there was a screenshot of an actual news page.

(and there doesn't appear to be other screenshots on their web site, but I could be mistaken)
