Has HP stolen Big Blue's song?
The public has a right to know
HP's new theme tune sounds distinctly familiar, or so a former IBM employee claims. It may even have the same notes played in the same order as an old IBM anthem. If you want to hum along, run the Web animated clip, which you can find here. Our music critic says: "I'm sure this was IBM's theme song back in 1989 to 1990. I remember being greeted to the IBM song every morning in NYC as I was getting ready to go to work at my job on Wall Street." So has HP returned to cloning IBM? We don't know. The IBM Press Office often takes weeks to return calls. But our correspondent has the answer. He said: "I think IBM should sue the hell out of them." ®
