It’s the 1990s, and this two-way paging company sees an opportunity in developing a version of its service for PDAs, says a pilot fish who gets the job of managing the software development.
“Part of the PDA development included a Windows app that would allow users to send text to a pager,” fish says. “As manager of the program, I was given frequent build updates, and I would hammer on the app and provide feedback to the subcontracting company doing the development.
“In one update, I noticed a feature had been implemented to schedule exactly when the page would be delivered. Hmmm…as the only person inside the company with a copy of the new Windows app, I felt safe in exploiting its scheduling capabilities.
