    A computer expert has described his astonishment at seeing the BBC's 24-hour news channel interview taxi driver in the mistaken belief it was him.

    Guy Kewney - a white, bearded technology expert - was astonished to see himself appear on screen as a black man with an apparent French accent. He was even more shocked to see himself unable to answer basic questions about the legal battle between the Beatles' Apple Corps and Apple Computer over the use of an apple symbol.

    Mr. Kewney, an IT journalist, watched as taxi driver Guy Goma gamely attempted to answer questions fired at him by BBC consumer affairs correspondent.

    Guy Goma, a graduate from the Congo, described his surprise interview ordeal as "very stressful". He found himself being ushered into a studio and fitted with a microphone after raising his hand when a producer called out the name Guy Kewney.

    Just this morning...Good Morning America showed the entire interview and then had a complete story about how this could have happened.

    The chick doing the interview didn't even realize that he had no clue what he was talking about!!! CRAZY!?!
