What is New?

The telephone company SBC bought AT&T and became “the new AT&T.” Sorry, that’s at&t – all lower case. This happened earlier in 2006, yet they still say they are new. Even when they first announced it, I didn’t know what was new, other than the case change of their name, a 3rd dimension to their logo, and renaming some services (e.g. not calling it DSL anymore).

Now that at&t is acquiring BellSouth, will it still be new? As they have indicated they will eliminate the brand Cingular, will it be “the new at&t wireless?”

I don’t know. I looked up the definition of the word new at Merriam-Webster’s Web site and it was no help either.

Maybe AOL not charging for its service anymore and going by – you guessed it – “the new AOL” leads towards the answer?
