Brrraaaiiins! Phoones!
For at least four months I carry a celphone that looks like this:


(yes, the first image is a composite, -- I still have not unpacked my lamps, so I had to take separate photos of LCD and the whole phone to compensate for poor light).

No one notices anything wrong with it.

Delightfully anachronistic, or, at least it reminds me of all the logos of companies represented in "2001: A Space Odyssey" and even "Silent Running" that faded out of existence before the future those two films envisioned.

Oddly, I'm surprised the "new" AT&T hasn't re-adopted that logo, since all the regional companies that were created when the federal government and courts ordered AT&T broken up into regional Bell companies back in 1984 have been slowly regrouping over the last 20-odd years.

I wanted to replace LG logo with GoldStar (LG <= Lucky GoldStar), but had no way to make a sticker small and clear enough.

I guess, they weren't satisfied with their logo merely suggesting Death Star shape, they made it as unambiguous as possible.
