When did that happen?

IBM snaps up Cognos. No, not IBM buying Cognos... I know when that happened.

Look at the first line of the report:

"IBM, the software and consulting giant..."

Now, I must admit I don't make a habit of reading news reports about my employer but that is the first time I can recall anybody describing IBM as a "software and consulting" company.  Perhaps the message is starting to get through :-)

Does this mean we have to accept software and consulting as business machines? ;)

No. It's worse than that. The "giant" part was the key. We're now like some sort of collosal cyclops. But like one with two eyes.

Oh... and the third "hardware" eye.

Triclops?

My new favourite word.
