Steve Jobs is one of the financiers behind Dean Kamen and the Segway. He was one of the first to get to try it out. It is odd, though, the similarity between the logos. Maybe Jobs figures Apple doesn't need that logo anymore. A little curious.

Yeah, Since Jobs financed it, then we've got nothing to worry about

It's actually supposed to be functional, it actually transmits information to you, what information I have no clue though.

Guys, this is not the Happy Mac! This is the MacOS logo. And the MacOS logo has a smiley face on both sides and TWO eyes... well, just look down at your dock. It may hint at the logo with the stylized side profile of the face on one side, but that's where the similarities end...

yeah, they've had that logo since the beginning. i think it was definitely "inspired" by the Mac OS logo. probably not similar enough for a lawsuit though.

Ok fine...I got the icons mixed up.. ;) :p

But still, it's nice to see some sort of Mac influence...especially now since the MacOS logo has been also removed from start-up.

I hate the gray Apple logo...

Notice I said similarity between the logos. Not, WOW! Those are exactly the same! That being said, Hemingray, you are right. They are not exactly the same, and it is not the Happy Mac.
