Hasta La Pasta

12:50 PM -- Feeling hungry? Then you may want to check out the new, upcoming menu from IBM Corp. (NYSE: IBM) and Norway's leading purveyor of telecom petit fours, Telenor Group (Nasdaq: TELN).

These two have put their biggest marketing brains together and come up with PASTA -- Presence Advanced Services for Telco Applications.

A bit of a long stretch, but hey, you have to give it to them for trying. (See IBM, Telenor Team Up.)

And we're hoping this is the start of a trend. Surely there's an OSS company that can develop TOAST (Telecom Operational And Systems Technology)?

Or another favorite of EuroBlog's, PAELLA (Performance Analysis Enhancements for Local Loop Access)?

Feel free to add your own delicacies…
