You know, I just hate getting into it with the lawyers. Last night they were getting our Niagra II slides ready in Vegas and somebody flagged the title: "World's most Powerful Commodity Chip." So I get the call at midnight while I'm kicking ass at the poker table.
"Jonathan, they're saying we've got to substantiate that, umm, most powerful thing."
"Right," I responded. "Change 'Most Powerful Chip' to 'Most Innovative Chip' and tell them to STFU."
Crisis solved. Trouble was, the guy I was playing against heard the conversaton and then called my bluff.
So I cashed my remaining chips and reached out to shake his hand. I noticed he had was wearing an IBM gold watch.
"Dude, I think you fixed the wrong problem," he said. "Since Apple dumped PowerPC, the friggin lawyers haven't let us call it commodity either."
