In the midst of the April Fool fun, the fast and furious announcements from CTIA, the re-awarding of Jack Cook and I as Microsoft MVP (something is different about this though, check this thread later for an explanation), and the Windows Mobile 6.1 excitement… You might have missed something kind of interesting. Engadget Mobile has been showing Magenta all day… Why? Check the logo below and it will give you a 1st hint…
Notice the pink (magenta) background? Now look at the logo. :)
So last week Deutsche Telekom, owners of the global T-Mobile brand, sent Engadget a late birthday present: a hand-delivered letter direct from their German legal department requesting the prompt discontinuation of the use of the color magenta on Engadget Mobile. Yep, seriously.
This post over at Engadget Mobile yesterday explains it all, but apparently T-Mobile isn’t too happy with Engadget’s use of the color magenta in their logo. Like someone is going to confuse Engadget Mobile with T-Mobile… Give me a break. Too funny.
I didn’t have time to wash Mobilitysite in Magenta in support of Engadget, but maybe the post will suffice letting everyone know about this silly take down request.
