Top bants, guys. Archbishop of Banterbury-tier stuff

IBM staffers might not feel there's much to laugh about at the moment, with more swathes of redundancies on the way or the directive to kill off home working, but at least there's still plenty of banter to be had at the firm.

Well, Banter.com to be precise. The unlikely sounding domain for the growth-strapped biz was acquired by US software outfit iPhrase, which in turn was acquired by IBM in 2005. Hence they've kept the domain name.

The Register can report that the domain names "bants" and "top bants" are still available – just in case HPE or someone else wants to get in on the highly competitive banter market.

IBM has not yet responded to our request for banter. ®
