I don’t always want the Jaguar.

Continuing from my post, dated January 10th 2010 (http://frantik-web.co.uk/blog/?p=315)

I believe I am growing old, I am listening to Radio 2 driving to and from work, and I have decided that there is too much choice when it comes to buying a damn mobile phone.

Since the release of the iPhone every phone needs look like or act like an iPhone with a touchscreen and smartphone-esque features without being a smartphone, and also I don’t want to have something that costs four hundred pounds all the time.

If I wanted a camera I would buy a camera, not want to have a phone with a 12Mpx camera, or GPS. The iPhone is nice, but it costs to have it.

Today, I put my SIM card in a battered up Nokia I found in Lost Property – the battery still held a charge and the phone then rang when I called my number. Simple!

Apple Records

It still surprises me how few people know the difference between the logo for Apple Records (famous for being The Beatles’ record label) and Apple, inc. They are both very different and Apple (Computer, iPhone, iPod etc etc) has never actually had a green apple for it’s Logo.

Take a look:

The above does not look anything like the Apple, inc Logo which is as follows:

Apple, inc (Formally Apple Computer)

And of course, I’m not quite sad enough to wear a Tee with the Apple, inc Logo on it ;)
