The peoples' computer?

Every time a see a Lenovo ad I think to myself - who writes that crap?

Their ads are so confusing.

Packed with features. Multiple headlines. Everything but the kitchen sink, as the saying goes.

I really cannot believe that IBM let their highly regarded Think Pad brand become so devalued.

Obviously I have no idea what I'm talking about however, because the Chinese computer manufacturer tripled their earnings in the last quarter to $105million.

And now they've announced that they will be removing the IBM badges from their computers two years earlier than expected.

Think I'll go and get myself a nice slice of humble pie.
