    If you think that was bad...yeesh. Microsoft's original one is 70s futuristic crud - same goes to most companies when they start out in the beginning...not that great, but it improves over time.

    This one looks like it has a giant digital anus in the middle.

    Their logo today is perfect! :)

    :eek: @ at those Microsoft logos! The original Apple one is pretty bad, too. It's way too busy to even be a logo. But I know, I know... that was 30 years ago. :p

    Thanks for giving me the best laugh of this (and maybe last) week --- that is such a stunning lateral analogy! Did I ever LOL when I read it? :) :) Brilliant.

    As much as I absolutely HATE Andy Warhol, I'm glad he came up with the rainbow Mac logo.

    That's also back when Jobs was hitting acid. I think the influence of that is pretty evident in that logo. It looks like its from a 16th century bottle of absinthe.

    That logo totally looks like something from the 1800s!

    Thanks for posting it as I had never seen it.

    I'd kill for that to be on my Mac mini instead of the logo that's on it now.
