how very '94.

You should take a look at the history of www.altavista.com, www.id.com
or any of the other sites where small companies beat the big boys to
their domain, legitimately.

In this case the problem seems to be that the marketing company chose a
very dull name for their product, and then were astonished to find that
someone else already owned the domain. They'll sell up and retire
eventually, but the banner is a nice compromise.
