Time Warner Cable shopping for a new name

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jan 5th 2010 8:04PM
They've been called many names before by their customers and clients and this week, they are officially looking for a new one. Not that one, sicko.

Time Warner Cable has officially launched "Project Mercury," a behind-the-scenes marketing project to find the company a new name by the end of 2010. Why now? First, they had to come up with a name for the renaming project.

Maybe we can save TWC some bucks by asking our loyal readers to suggest their own names. And remember, all suggestions are monitored for obscenities.

Considering that my friends that have Time-Warner were just notified their rates are going up 5 to 10% next month (gee I wonder if their "agreement" with Fox has anything to do with that,) my hope is that regardless of what they call themselves, everyone else will call them obsolete.

Didn't work for AIG. But that's likely because they were constantly in the press. Since most people are insanely stupid, it can only help TWC. They'll change it to "Liberty Freedom Cable" or something lame like that.

I mean, look how much changing his name from George W. Bush to Barack H. Obama helped Bush's reputation with Democrats. It's amazing, he can do no wrong with them, even when he does the exact same things he did with his old name. Maybe it's the new tan, that can't hurt.

How about if Time Warner Cable just changes their "giving birth to a corkscrew" logo?

The logo is actually "The all seeing eye" it's some sort of illuminati(sp?) symbol.
