But there is _one_ commercial they're doing that I wish they'd change just
a tad:

You know the one where this cheese (cheesy?) company is getting ready to
go online.  Some guy pushes a button on the laptop and voila!  They're
online.  Then all of the website is hacked.  The IBM e-business tag is
shown after that.

Ever notice what kind of laptop that is?

Seems to me that if you're going to show a site being hacked, you're
equipment should be _nowhere_ around.

OH! It just hit me - Thinkpads run Windows...

My gosh guys, cut IBM some slack here, huh?  If your job is selling
AS/400s
then you have a nice new tool in your sales kit:  "Did you see those new
IBM
ads? Well, I am here to show you what they're talking about.  See this
baby?
Its the iServer and it can do what you want done.  Can we talk?"

No user really gives a damn about the name of the box, or the color of the
racing stripe,  Me? I'm glad for those ads.  What I liked most was it
talked
about computiung and never once showed or said "Windows ..."
