Veronica Belmont (daily.mahalo.com) and Ryan Block (engadget.com) are both posting that Deutsche Telekom (parent company of t-mbile is demanding that Engadget Mobile discontinue its use of the color magenta, as it causes “confusion” between the brands. In response, Engadget has gone a lovely shade of pink for the day, and Veronica says “I kind of love it and wish it would stay that way”. This is moronic, The Copyright/Trademark/Patient system is so screwed up that shit like this happens. Its so stupid that I’m kind of at a loss for words (almost 90 words in 😛 ) this is seriously stupid so please everyone add this picture to your site in solidarity And as ChuckD said “you gotta fight the powers that be”
My dear friend Ryan has gone MIA. I think he may just be hiding, or something may be wrong. I don’t know. He doesn’t answer his phone, and hasn’t responded on facebook, twitter, or pownce. I think its because I’ve been pushing to hard to try and get txtbasket up and running. So next week I think I’ll go back to working almost full time at my other job and make some extra cash and possibly put up a $100 bounty for someone to create a “complete n00bz guide to setting up stet”, licensing it CC BY-SA, and posting it to the wiki (txtbasket.info). when I come up with the cash that will be the bounty so anyone out there who wants to get a head start can.
