Big Yellow Bucket o'Fail

Ahhhh Symantec, still trying to buy their way out of failure... when they borged my then-employer a decade or so back, someone turned up to tell us all how marvellous the brave new world would be. Our hearts sankwhen we filed into the room as we were each handed one of those silicone rubber bracelets, in Symnatec yellow, embossed with the word "BELIEVE". The first slide of the preso showed forty company logos.... "Look, this is how many companies we've taken over in the last five years alone. We know what we're doing! We've got plenty of practice! You can trust us!"

Three guesses how well that worked out...
