"...But the basis of this campaign, really, is part of an overall strategy developed by Al Zollar, general manager of the iSeries, to add to the platform's customer base by improving its image." "This campaign, which Zollar discussed with business partners during its PartnerWorld conference being held this week in Las Vegas, will be rolled out during Common conference in May in San Antonio."

The campaign will include videos of iSeries users hugging their systems, tattoos and the catchy slogan "iSeries. my Series." It's all about the love, baby. "Anyone who buys this platform falls in love with it," said Malcolm Haines, an IBM iSeries marketing veteran. "There are massive levels of affection for this system. We're hoping that when people see the love these users have for their platform they'll say, 'Why?' Why do they feel this affection? It must be really unusual." http://search400.techtarget.com/originalContent/0,289142,sid3_gci953207,00.h tml Tattoos! Another reason to go to COMMON. GA
