QUESTION: WHO owns the branding rights to your computer? Answer: Anyone smart enough to write a program that turns your PC into a billboard. It sounds strange, but it's true. We're bombarded by thousands of commercial messages every day, and we've learned to tune out most of them. So, advertisers are always searching for new ways to reach us, and our computers are inviting targets for marketers trying to build brand awareness and Web masters trying to capture our eyeballs for their advertisers, by hook or crook.

So, with Southwest's first major redesign of its Internet presence in nearly five years, you might think that home-page booking would be the first thing Southwest's Web designers would add. But they didn't. As on the old site, Southwest's new home page still makes customers tap a link to get to booking, flight schedules and other travel functions.

They post family photos, resumes, wares for sale and just about anything else that might interest neighbors next door or people half-way around the world.
