Loan = Free PC

Once upon a time, when we worked for a large software company, we giggled mercilessly at the house ads that read LOAN = FREE PC. The deal was, if you took out a loan, you'd get a free computer in exchange.

Now, we've noticed that the Waldorf-Astoria hotel doesn't use a hyphen; it uses an equal sign. Waldorf=Astoria. This makes even less sense than LOAN = FREE PC. (For one thing, we think Waldorf>Astoria, because of the Waldorf Salad's utter deliciousness.)

Anyway, the Waldorf=Astoria is about to receive a stern letter from SPOGG explaining the difference between the hyphen and the equals sign.
