Chelsea are sponsored by Samsung, and were once by Commodore and again by Amiga. Man Utd were once by Sharp, and recently got some money from Epson.

What other sporting sponsorships by tech companies can you remember?

And way back when Orange was a new company, I can remember sitting in the stand at Trenbridge during an Ashes match, Shane Warne's debut year I believe, and there was great gossip and speculation as to what the orange square's with no text was advertising. A few weeks later I realised what it was.

Would you say that was good, or bad advertising?
