    I'm amazed IBM is still so high up as a brand.

    Though tbh, the whole thing (as with many concepts of the ilk) feels a touch broken to me.

    Also, I don't get brand loyalty. To me, I use a brand in very much the same way I use an author of a book.
    This person / brand has a history of bringing out good quality things I like, so I will keep an eye on things they continue to bring out, and be more willing to give them a slight benefit of the doubt if I am unsure.
    However, it does NOT mean I will pay double price just to have that name on it, nor does it mean I will take everything from the person / brand whether it is decent or not.

    Mac's got it.
    I used to work for Freeserve which was once the biggest ISP in the UK and we had an almost unheard of 99% brand recognition - it was used as an case study in Marketing degrees as it came out of nowhere to get 99% brand awareness within 2 years - that means that 99% of the population had heard of it - it doesn't mean that they were customers or even knew what we did but they were aware that a company named Freeserve existed - that might not sound too impressive to non-marketing people but is actually astounding. So what did our (then) new owners do to capitalise on this awesome achievement? Yep, you got it - they renamed us 'Wanadoo' to fit in with France Telecom's other ISPs in Europe and then sat back as brand awareness plummeted to almost single figures and hardly anyone new signed up. It didn't get much better after that when they merged us with Orange but by that point I'd stopped working on the ISP side of things.

    This is some fascinating technology but the talk has a bit of an ominous ending to it.
