1. Why are Intel running Gap adverts?
2. Why is Visa running ads which, annoying enough in themselves, pronounce Visa as 'veysa'? (*) Well, I think I can guess - Visa which stands amusannoyingly for Visa International Services Association has a weird corporate structure and some bits are being flogged off by the owning banks but the European bit isn't. This doesn't excuse them, however.

(*) This would be much more impressive if I could be bothered to find the correct IPA characters - imagine the ve from Vega and the sa from visa.
