Graystone Industries Out of the Holoband Business is a The Caprican News article written by Harold Sims. It was printed in Martius 2, YR42.


We're sorry that it's all Graystone, all the time at The Caprican today...but, well, the man makes news. Daniel Graystone's much-hyped guest spot on Backtalk with Baxter Sarno was full of surprises, not the least of which was the sudden appearance of his wife, Dr. Amanda Graystone, who proceeded to more or less take over the interview. However, the biggest surprise came from Graystone himself, who made an announcement regarding his company, Graystone Industries, that has all of Caprica buzzing.

In front of the Backtalk studio audience and the millions of people tuning in, Daniel Graystone declared that Graystone Industries would "no longer profit from Holobands or V-World licensing." Graystone went further and asked other companies to get on board with this radical approach, particularly calling out rival company the Vergis Corporation.

Graystone said that all profits from Holobands (one of the most popular - and profitable - of Graystone Industries' products) will go to a charity or foundation "for young people to find the right experiences and right values."

This comes from the Graystones' discussion with Sarno that living in allegedly amoral virtual environments like the V-Clubs and New Cap City led the Graystones' daughter, Zoe, to be involved in the recent MAGLEV bombing - a devastating "real world" tragedy if there ever was one.

Will Daniel Graystone stay true to his word? It's apparently up to us, as after making the announcement he turned to the audience and said, "Hold me to it, Caprica."

If nothing else, maybe this will stop protestors from throwing their Graystone computers out the window.
