And what about the chair with the electric zapper?
Proving that 1960s Bond films never go out of style, this description from today's Wall Street Journal (subs. req'd) of a typical board meeting of Hollinger International (aka the expense account of the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy):
Board meetings were brief, casual affairs, according to minutes and directors. They were usually held at Hollinger's New York offices, which are hidden behind a poorly marked wooden door. From a pop-up computer screen in front of his chair, Lord [Conrad] Black controlled the room's lights, sound and window blinds, which he would alter during board meetings, according to one attendee.
