Back To T&AT

Filed under: Geek Stuff |

Wow…I actually bought something on eBay for the first time in over two years! You know, sometimes one’s economic situation is a factor, and that was the case for a while. Still is.
One of my friends in town proudly showed me their new Pantech Link II messaging feature phone, and believe it or don’t, I was very impressed with the form factor…being able to comfortably hold it in my hand and hunt-and-peck text out a message on the portrait-format QWERTY keyboard, with buttons that, while conforming to the design, I could actually discern one from another!
At that point I resolved to get the phone, and switch back to AT&T.
I managed to scrounge up the funds to do it, and found a decently priced model someone was selling who only used it for two months while their iPhone was in the shop. I should have it by the end of this week, and then I can take it right away to an AT&T store to activate it as a GoPhone, and be done with Verizon.

And…speaking of eBay, they have a new logo out. Here it is:

Our refreshed logo is rooted in our proud history and reflects a dynamic future. It’s eBay today: a global online marketplace that offers a cleaner, more contemporary and consistent experience, with innovation that makes buying and selling easier and more enjoyable. We retained core elements of our logo, including our iconic color palette. Our vibrant eBay colors and touching letters represent our connected and diverse eBay community – more than 100 million active users and 25 million sellers globally and growing.

Kinda reminds me of Microsoft’s recent brand image revamping. But no matter. And there you have it.
