Secret history of Santa: Techno-Santa

Another little-known fact about Santa is that he is an early adapter of new technologiess.  He was the one of the first to use the manual calculator to help out with the calculations.

It led to some unexpected unpleasantness, though, when Santa's newly-efficient calculating methods made him realize that a couple of the elves had been skimming profits.

Santa has kept up with the times.

But don't think he's still relying on hardcopys.  No way!  He went completely digital several years ago.  He mostly uses a laptop in the office now.  And when he's doing deliveries, he relies on his combination cell phone/Pocket PC.  With a healthy supply of digital music downloads, of course.
