Charter introduces Spectrum brand in Southern California
Four months after Charter Communications acquired Time Warner
Cable, the company is officially retiring the much-maligned
Time Warner Cable brand name. Charter on Tuesday switched its
product brand to Spectrum and the recently bulked-up company
-- now the dominant cable-TV and Internet service provider in
Southern California with more than 3 million customer homes --
is sending strong signals that it intends to be less flexible
than its predecessor.

Charter promises to screw existing Time Warner Cable subscribers,
essentially. Oh yeah, these mergers are just GREAT.

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
