IBM and Wi-fi@Chennai airport

Finally got a first hand feel of the wi-fi at the Chennai airport...BSNL has done a good job...decent speeds, no connecn issues (so far at least!)...
Feel proud that Chennai is the only domestic airport in the country to have Wi-fi :)

And one more thing that struck me here...IBM really has a strong brand value! The security check guy asked me on seeing my IBM badge - "You are working for IBM saar? Software saar?"...I nodded...

Then came another security guy and said "IBM ka naam suna hain...uska full form kya hain?"
"International Business Machines"
"IBM kya karta hain"
"Software, hardware...bahut kuch karta hain..."
...

Feels nice to be an IBMer...

I like the way my brother decribed IBM to my aunt when she asked the same question:
"Take the richest 500 companies in the world. Reliance is at 499. IBM is at 5"
