John, *outstanding* ad theme. Great ads. David, I like both. I only wish I had $2.2 million to get a :30 spot...;-) BTW, AP says that IBM is advertising in the Super Bowl. (http://biz.yahoo.com/apf/010123/super_bowl.html) Advertising Age doesn't list them in the lineup, though. (http://adage.com/dataplace/archives/dp494.html) Scott, you wrote: "IMHO, its not a real good idea to announce "our system is hacker proof!" especially on network television." "This is especially true of the AS/400, which is ONLY relatively safe against hackers because most hackers don't know anything about it." I'd have to agree that a lot of the iSeries being "hacker proof" is due to it's obscurity. But it's not accurate to say that is the ONLY reason it is relatively safe. Actually, the reason is that security was built into the core of OS/400 from the beginning, over 20 years ago. It wasn't an afterthought, like most other OS. Is the 400 hacker proof? No. But how many 400's (that had standard security measures) have been hacked? How does that compare to Windoze and Eunuchs? My guess is that, as a percentage of successful hacks to attempted hacks, the iSeries is quite a bit safer than the other platforms. That's no accident--as Frank Soltis would say, "it's by design".
