People are always accusing government and academia of being inefficient, and saying they should be run more like businesses. Now Gizmodo is reporting this:
Not sure why we didn’t see this earlier, but everyone’s favorite wireless brand, Cingular, is going to go bye-bye. AT&T is currently purchasing Cingular’s parent company, BellSouth, and will remove the Cingular name, replacing it with the euphonious AT&T Wireless. Gone, too, will be the dancing orange fellow we all know and love.
Branding and building the Cingular line cost BellSouth $4 billion. Oh well.
Does this mean when I need service I’ll have to report now that I have a service that is AT&T that used to be Cingular that used to be AT&T?
