is there any way that ibm's attention could be gotten?  i've never
worked there, but i've worked with their products for longer than i care
to admit!  and the reason i stay with them are because they are
reliable.  

on the list there have been discussions on consultants and contractors,
good and bad, and maybe ibm has been working with a bad ad agency!  i
read in a novel years ago about how the auto industry has these deals
with ad agencies that keep large numbers at the ad agencies employeed. 
maybe ibm has a deal like that, too!

we all comment when watching tv about good and bad ads.  my view of a
good ad is that it gets your attention, conveys what the product is for,
and makes you want to buy it.  

ibm, for the most part seems to have lost that concept.  no one wants a
magic box, they want a computer that works!
