Big Blue buckets

You could even call ‘em ebuckets

Big Blur's sprung a leak. Nothing the IBM corporate police need worry about, although if the truth were known, they've probably got other things on their minds at the moment. No, IBM has sprung a leak -- literally. At the company's Portsmouth HQ -- a shrine to 70s-style concrete construction -- they're shelling out some of the record $81.7 billion they turned over last year on buckets to catch rain water pouring through the ceiling. Which is a great image for all their customers who trudge down to Pompey just to meet the guys down there. ®
