Tiger Tiger! The IPKat competition to come up with a good slogan tying golf genius Tiger Wood with TaG Heuer watches (see details here) produced a crop of wonderful entries. Alas, this is something of a family weblog and most of the best entries ranged from those which were merely filthy to those which were positively, well, enough to make any Kat blush. Some of the funniest, though, were those submitted by readers who were so sincerely committed to the purity of the brand that they referred only to Tiger's prowess on the golf course. Of the more publishable efforts, the IPKat liked these best:
- "For the man who doesn't mind a bit of rough when the time is right" and/or "For the man who realises it's time to stay out of the rough" (Matthew Rippon, BHP Innovate)
- "Is it time to release the Tiger in you?" (Naazneen Schmittzehe, Hamlins LLP)
- "Cometh the Tag Heuer, cometh the man" (Sophie Ashcroft, Blake Lapthorn, who observes that the names Tiger and Tag Heuer "sound strangely similar when rendered in a Chinese accent")
- "Tag a Tiger, Tag a Tiger – rah, rah, rah! Tag a Tiger, Tag a Tiger – oy! y’ur fun" (Brian Lucas of Lucas & Co., with apologies to the ladies of Imperial College)
- "Tag Heuer; classy and reliable - something to aspire to eh Tiger?" and "Contemplating the infinitely small - Tag Heuer's engineering and Tiger Wood's integrity" (Bonita Trimmer, Wragge)
- Borrowing from Timex, "Tag Heuer, takes a licking and keeps on ticking" (Professor Paul J. Heald, currently visiting various universities ...)
- "The chronograph for the confessional" (Edward Smith, IPO)
- “Tag Heuer – a pair of hands you can trust” (Guy Veysey, Accenture)
- "There's always time to play a round..." (Alex Freelove, Herbert Smith)
Around the blogs. TomiLaw is a new blog on the block, being a perspective on Technology, Online, Media and Intellectual property issues from UK law firm DMH Stallard's legal team. TomiLaw looks at "software development, cloud computing, web, media (old and new), content creation and licensing and the world of fashion: what's new, what's interesting and what's fun". Even though the little image to the left of the logo looks suspiciously like the IPKat's much-hated lightbulb, the Kats wish it the best of luck!
Fancy curling up in front of a television? BBC's Panorama programme tonight is called "Are the Net Police Coming for You?". According to the blurb, "A proposed new law is threatening to disconnect the millions of internet users who unlawfully download free music, films and TV. Jo Whiley (left) looks at how broadband use at home may never be the same, and could even be cut off". It's on at 8.30pm (GMT) on BBC 1. British viewers who miss it can catch up later on iPlayer. Thanks, Hugo Cox, for spotting this.
