El Reg goes all IBM!

Holy Moley! Its an IBM sponsored El Reg Homepage!

The Register is possibly the most popular computer-trade-stylee publication in the UK and is hated - I mean *hated* - by some senior Lotus chappies. Specifically because - IMHO - it bites the hand of IT. In that rather charming way us Brits do.

I thought - wow. IBM backdrop. Someones actually paying - gasp - Marketing money - for this. Surely - heart all a quiver - we dont have a Lotus story in there ?

Well. No. But hey - the mayfly of eternal optimism (especially as regards Lotus Marketing) did beat its wings a couple of times before being mercilessly shredded in the teeth of corporate politics.
