TIMES STAFF WRITER What's in a name? For public companies in California, it was Datathis Inc. or Datathat Inc. back in the 1980s, when virtually every garage-based high-tech company was seemingly sprouting into a major publicly held company.

Brookline Savings Bank in Boston, in business since 1871, leaped into cyber-banking this year by offering online banking to its customers. Keeping up with technology is one thing, keeping down costs is another. So the tiny bank leased its home banking service from Digital Insight Corp. in Calabasas. Cyber-banking is the bread and butter of 4-year-old Digital Insight, with 380 customers, mostly credit unions and pipsqueak-to-mid-sized banks.
