Yeah, I had a marketer call me from IBM and ask me a bunch of questions. Oddly 
they had me marked
down as being employed by a company called Southdown whom I have never worked 
for. Who knows it
may have been a call from someone just claiming to be IBM.

Is this going to end up being like the early 90's when someone would call you 
up and ask you what
type of tapes you use and then in a week you have a box of those tapes 
delivered to you including
and invoice from a company you have never heard of? 

Yech!
