7. Brilliant. Just like the commercial radio stations,
so many of which not state their ownership along with their call sign: "This is KRAP radio 666 AM, a MegaGlomComCorpInc station."

Anyone else recall when Acura ditched the Legend name for their card, just because people would say "I drive a Legend" instead of "I drive an Acura?"

The corporate types got in a snit because the corporate name wasn't as well known as the model name and in an ego-driven move (rare for Honda), decided to kill the Legend brand name in favor of numbers and letters.

Their sales dropped by thirty percent the following year, and it took them three years to recover.
