Blue Logos Everywhere!

Amongst the traffic I was fighting in Tulsa this past weekend, were two corporate vans. Initially, I thought I was experiencing déjà vu, but after a double-take, I realised that these two vans were cruising the town as part of two separate corporations. DirecTV on the one hand, and Cox Communications on the other.

All these vans look the same!

Is anybody else sick of all this blue? It's enough to make people depressed when they're trying to buy technology. In fact, according to this article, that's what blue's designed to do. That and make you feel like they're smart.

I guess these folks can keep their identical logos. Apparently, they simply want to make their customers feel sad because Sonic the Hedgehog is smarter than they are.

Sad thing is, that's probably true.
