HTC makes a switch in brand identity, it’s up to YOU now

by 229 comments

Today HTC launched their brand redesign choosing “Quietly Brilliant” as a slogan in favor of their old “HTC Innovation”. The new HTC brand identity is more easy-going with light-colored backgrounds and handwritten fonts. The thing that I enjoy the most is that their once  pitch-black film-noir website color scheme is redesigned as well with a more lively feel in mind. I would have liked it even better if they went for something more colorful instead of simply switching from black to white overnight, but I’ll take it as it is.


HTC will use the new “Quietly Brilliant” brand message as a part of their world-wide advertising campaign that puts “YOU” (the user) in the center of the advertising message. The slogan in all marketing materials will be something along the lines of “You don’t need to get a phone. You need a phone that gets you.” Read more »

Now that the latest Microsoft desktop OS is officially out in the stores, I guess many of you will be taking the upgrade route.

Apple announces the touch sensitive Magic Mouse – works wirelessly

by 7 comments


Apple finally went ahead an added a true wireless mouse to their arsenal. Meet the Bluetooth-based Magic Mouse. Since it’s definitely not the first, or not even the hundredth wireless mouse on the market, you may wonder what’s the fuss all about. Well, the thing is that the Magic Mouse is itself touch sensitive supporting touch gestures much like the touchpads of most recent mobile computers.

The Magic Mouse has a unibody design that has Apple written all over – but in the good sense, you know. I say that since up until now the mouse peripherals by the company have always been a little less than stellar, to say the least.

The guys over at Gizmodo have a really nice review of the little white thingy, so jump on and have a good read.
