For anyone who hasn't yet asked Ren for an explanation...

...of how this whole AT&T rebranding thing works, Stephen Colbert summs it up:


Much along the lines of seeing how fast you can name the
states, or their capitals alphabetically, how fast can *YOU* name the
22 operating companies?

  No cheating!

  (The converse game is principally played by Bell executives;
how fast can you {rename|acquire} the operating companies?)


... and he doesn't even mention that SBC also acquired Pacific Telesis (PacBell, Nevada Bell) and SNET (in addition to Ameritech) before it merged with AT&T and Bell South.
