Think of it this way- IBM puts human faces on their innovation which is good

Maybe the nice lady is not working out. It is like Intel using actors to promote technology. Use the guys to sell it.

Nothing wrong with that though. They show cars with humans by the side. This could be a new level of marketing.

No offense to Rodney but perhaps IBM could borrow a concept from a car industry and put a nice lady in front of the pure system if they are concern of showing technology details...what's the point of that picture?...if we are to make building technology exciting for young people we have to present it in more inteersting way
