Suppose this link connects the current document to another document that gives detailed information about MSRL of Panasonic and is located on a computer system at MSRL of Panasonic in Tokyo, Japan. Now, suppose your computer had a mouse connected to it, and you used the mouse to click anywhere on the link Multimedia Systems Research Laboratory (MSRL) of Panas...
