Hey all--I was watching literally ten minutes of the World Series tonight, and there was a commercial that came on for IBM. I wasn't paying any attention to it, but I noticed that it seemed like a medical "thing."

A bunch of pictures were flashing by on part of the screen, and I thought, hey, that looked like a tick. Then, up popped a diagnosis list (like it was a computer screen) about diagnosing a man as having Lyme. I really barely started paying attention at that point, so I didn't get much else. I did see RMSF as one of the topics on the list they put up.

I have tried googling the ad and looking on youtube, but no luck so far. I was all excited to see a mainstream company doing an ad on prime air time that involved Lyme Disease and other infections!

I may have completely misinterpreted what was going on, but I am going to live in a happy belief that I saw something good in terms of press or awareness.

Google WATSON and IBM...or do a search here. It was about Watson diagnosing Lyme.

I mute all commercials so I didn't even notice, but it's been talked about here.

I found it [Smile] . Thank you! I watch next to no TV, so this ad could have been on for 2 years and I wouldn't have known it.

and like I said... I don't watch commercials. I haven't seen this one either. Maybe they'll run it again tonight.

Go Rangers!!! [Cool]

(though, living in Missouri, I won't care if the Cardinals win!)

I'm a Texan first, last and always.

TOO COOL! A TV add? Wow!

Maybe some one out there actually watches the commercials? This is one time I wish they did!

Go Rangers! Go Cardinals!

Here's the link on YouTube if you want to watch it.

Please know that I am not affiliated with IBM, and I am clearly not in the medical field, so I'm not promoting the WATSON product. I'm just psyched to see Lyme in something so mainstream [Wink] .

As a New Englander, since the Sox or Yankees aren't in the Series, I can just root for good games.

Yes it was. Now I'm wishing I had gotten those extra two hours of sleep.
